9th September 2013
We are delighted to announce further collaboration with the forces charity ‘Mission Motorsport’ http://www.missionmotorsport.org/.
Ever since Mission Motorsport attended the 2012 Le Mans Classic to run the 1929 Bentley Blower belonging to Classic Grand Touring Director, Martin Overington, we have remained closely involved together. Le Mans Classic has become the highest profile historic race in the world and in 2012 Mission Motorsport patron Derek Bell joined Martin to co-drive the same Blower. Mission Motorsport was an integral part of the team helping to overcome significant issues with the car throughout the race weekend.
On the 18th of September Tony Compson and Josh Green from Mission Motorsports will join Classic Grand Touring on their 20th Angoulême, Circuit des Remparts tour. Their duties will be to operate the tour support vehicle, assisting Tour Director and company MD Thomas Brimblecombe to guide the 35 participating collector’s cars to the event and assist if there are mechanical problems en route.
Thomas commented “We are delighted to have such good numbers on our tour this year; during the Angouleme weekend we will be looking after over 100 clients. The fact that we can rely on these impressive ex-forces guys from Mission Motorsport to come along too really helps us. Their knowledge gained in the forces, which includes vehicle mechanics under pressure, will be invaluable on the tour. We are really happy to support the charity in this way as we have always been so impressed with their achievements.”
