“In fact we are having our next Charity Race on Saturday, July 30 at 1.30 pm at Sutton Circuit near Hinckley.

“We know that there must be thousands of people who would love to get into motorsport but do not realise that a club like ours exists. Members do not have to have a race licence or driving licence, they do not even have to have their own equipment, we provide crash helmets, overalls and gloves.

“We also support the Go Motorsport initiative and want to get so many more people involved in this great sport.”
