Prolectric Proud Sponsors of James Russell at TEAMBRIT Racing
Wednesday 21 February 2018 | News
Prolectric are very proud to be sponsoring James Russell at Team Brit Racing this year. Read more about James here, http://www.teambrit.co.uk/about/the-drivers
Team BRIT is a competitive motor racing team consisting of disabled drivers. Many are ex or serving military troops who have sustained serious injuries and are disabled.
They are a competitive racing team, not a charity, and race against teams of able-bodied drivers on a totally level playing field — something that no other sport can offer.
They aim to make racing history and take a team to the world famous Le Mans 24hr endurance race, becoming the first ever all-disabled team to do so.
Many of their drivers have taken part in karting events through the charity, KartForce. Team BRIT provides the opportunity for them to step up to competitive endurance racing.
In 2018 they will race in the GT4 series, before progressing to GT3, taking us one step away from Le Mans.
They aim to:
- Normalise disability,
- Rebuild confidence through competition and teamwork,
- Provide an opportunity for professional development within motorsport as a whole, by teaching drivers the business of sponsorship, revenue generation and vocational training,
- Enhance recovery and rehabilitation through intense and testing environments and through the adaptation of disability to different environments,
- Inspire members of the disabled community through the demonstration of what can be achieved in the face of adversity.
The project will show military veterans, disabled people and the world, that they can achieve goals they never thought they were capable of achieving.
