We’re proud to support and protect the True Heroes Racing team. Don’t know much about them? The race team is the brainchild of a serving Royal Navy sailor who has been lucky enough to return from several Tours of Duty in Afghanistan uninjured.
After working with a large number of injured UK Service personnel on motorsport charity events it was decided to try and use competitive motorsport as a way of restoring a sense of direction and focus for our injured UK Service personnel and in 2012 “True Heroes Racing” was formed.
Racing for them in 2014 are two former servicemen, both discharged from active duty after sustaining injuries from IEDs in Afghanistan. Murray Hambro, the team’s first racer, is a double amputee who hasn’t let his injuries suppress his love for bikes and is racing with all the foot controls on the bars.
Joining him in the Tristar R&G Triple Challenge also on a Triumph Daytona 675 is Luke Smith, who when serving in the parachute regiment lost his hearing to an explosion, meaning he was discharged from active duty.
But it isn’t just about the riders as some of the team’s mechanics are also injured servicemen, in keeping with the ethos of True Heroes Racing.
Check out www.trueheroesracing.co.uk or have a chance to meet them by emailing your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org where one lucky person will win a pair of tickets for this weekend’s British Superbike Racing at Thruxton. Competition closes at 9pm on Friday August 1, 2014.
