With the annual Mission Motorsport Race of Remembrance cancelled due to Covid-19 and as huge supporters of the charity, Bicester Heritage is proud to be involved with the virtual event, #YourRoR, which will take place over the Remembrance weekend, 6 – 8 November 2020.
#YourRoR is an online remembrance service and will consist of a series of activities to keep the spirit of Race of Remembrance alive and commemorate the sacrifices made by service personnel and their families. #YourRoR gives supporters the means to engage, fundraise and most importantly, the opportunity to attend a very special virtual remembrance service.
Bicester Heritage has offered the airfield perimeter track as a location for Mission Motorsport beneficiaries to walk or run around (3.57km) as many times as they are able to between 07.30 am-10.45 am on Sunday 08th November – to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the charity. For further information on how to support this initiative please contact Tiggy Atkinson.
Keen to support the event the REVS-Limiter team comprising Adam Gompertz, Charlotte Vowden, Jimmy de Ville, Matt Sanger and Alex Goy will be taking part in #YourRoR by lapping Frisky, Charlotte’s gorgeous red MGA around the track at Bicester Heritage on the morning of Remembrance Sunday. However, to make the challenge more interesting the team will be pushing, rather than driving, Frisky around the circuit.
Reverend Adam Gompertz, REVS-Limiter’s organiser, commented: “We want to support the community of Mission Motorsport beneficiaries, and thought it entirely appropriate to base our challenge here at the former RAF bomber base, Bicester Heritage. Of course, this is a significant day where we remember and give thanks for the sacrifices that so many service personnel have given over the years”.
James Cameron, Mission Motorsport CEO, added: “Cancelling Race of Remembrance was a tough decision and its impact on our beneficiaries, our supporters and those who love the event is acute. We conceived of the #YourRoR campaign to keep the spirit of the race alive in these difficult times, and the classic car push captures that spirit absolutely. We’re also enormously grateful”.
The Race of Remembrance would normally raise considerable funds for the charity but this year they will be reliant on online donations. Therefore we would ask that if you are able to please follow click here to make a donation.
