2018 Live Action Arena Mission Motorsport


"2018 started with a huge bang for The Forces’ Motorsport Charity, Autosport International is always a great start to the motorsport year for networking and reaching a wide audience, but the opportunity to participate in the Live Action Show was absolutely incredible. A team began training for the event four months out, we knew that bringing Billy Monger into a close knit group of veterans and serving soldiers was always going to be a challenge for the young racer but he handled it with aplomb. It has worked both ways – with Terry Grant’s direction and oversight the team – guys and girls including both serving soldiers and veterans put their arms around the young disabled racer and made him welcome."
