Team BRIT has confirmed its entry into this year’s Halow Project charity kart race.
On Tuesday July 13th, the team will line up at Sandown Park in Esher against a host of teams and racing legend Damon Hill OBE in support of the Halow Project.
A Surrey, community-based charity, the project supports young people aged 16+ with learning disabilities on their journey into adult life. It helps give young people the chance to enjoy an active social life, make new friends, and find further education and employment training.
Former F1 superstar Damon Hill, who is a Team BRIT supporter, is also a patron for the charity. Every year a karting challenge, led by Damon, is held to raise crucial funds for the charity.
It was at a Halow kart race in 2018 that Team BRIT first discovered current team GT4 driver, Bobby Trundley, who was competing at the event. Bobby was racing alongside former Team BRIT driver Warren McKinlay who instantly recognised his incredible talent and introduced him to the team.
This year, Bobby will return to the event, teaming up with fellow Team BRIT drivers Aaron Morgan, Luke Pound, Andrew Tucker and Matty Street.
Team BRIT founder Dave Player said: “We’re really looking forward to supporting this fantastic project, which is all about giving young people with disabilities the support and opportunities they deserve.
“Damon Hill is a long-term supporter of our team, and has followed Bobby’s journey for some time through their shared work around raising awareness of autism and similar conditions. For Bobby to return to the race with his team mates as a race winning GT4 driver will be incredible, and I hope we can share our story with other young people there to help inspire them to go after their dreams.”
