Team HARD. Racing have today launched a fundraising campaign in support of the Maidstone And Tunbridge Wells NHS who are currently fighting the COVID-19 outbreak. Team HARD. Racing are located just outside of Maidstone in Detling and with many team members living in the Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells area see this as a fitting way to support the workers who are battling to save thousands of lives in the Kent region.
To raise money for the Maidstone And Tunbridge Wells NHS, Team HARD. Racing and its partners are planning to run a special ‘Your Name, Our Car’ livery on the Howard Fuller/Mike Bushell RCIB Insurance with Fox Transport VW CC at the opening round of the 2020 Kwik-Fit British Touring Car Championship where special thank you messages will be accompanied by the names of donors.
Tony Gilham, Managing Director of Team HARD. Racing is thinking of everyone during this time. “This is not how we envisaged our 2020 going and I am shocked at the devastation COVID-19 is causing. Unfortunately, we don’t yet have the technology or infrastructure that the Formula 1 teams have to manufacture devices to make a direct impact. However, we are desperate to use our resources where we can to help the effort to fight the Coronavirus.
I’d like to thank our partners Right Choice Insurance Brokers, Fox Transport, Hub Financial Solutions and Autobrite Direct for being so supportive in this movement to help make our mark on fighting the coronavirus. When we do eventually get racing back underway the Fuller/Bushell RCIB Insurance with Fox Transport car will be awash with support messages and names accompanying them from everyone who has joined us in helping raise money for this very worthy cause.
The hospitality team are also putting a number of VIP tables at selected rounds of the championship on reserve for NHS staff raffle prize winners, this is something we are currently putting together, after all, these heroes are the most important people around at the moment.
On behalf of the whole team I can’t thank the entire NHS enough for all their hard work. You have supported us from the stands, now it’s time for us to support you.”
You can get involved and have both your and your loved ones names on a BTCC car via the teams JustGiving page (https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/team-hard-racing).
