Mission Motorsport is a charity, which helps disabled ex-servicemen and women through the power of mucking around with and in racing cars.

Indeed, Mission Motorsport is run by veterans, serving officers and motorsport professionals. There are days out, access to major motorsport events, passenger rides and all sorts of other activities, which prove the healing qualities of motorsport.

Mission Motorsport is committed to competition. Taking part in the hill climbs, track racing, rallying and even offshore power boating involves teamwork, dedication and all sorts of challenges that can be overcome.

There are also vocational goals that can be achieved through the charity. Training courses and educational opportunities start with one day basic car maintenance courses at their workshop, near Tedworth House, Wiltshire. The pinnacle is probably the Modular Motorsport Foundation course leading to a residential placement with a major race team.

This has led to appointments with some very high profile companies in the British motor industry.
