Rick's aim in 2017 is to support his friend Noel Wilson, who has MS, in his efforts to raise funds at motor sport events. Noel and Rick have been involved in motorsport for many years and this project will see Rick Shortle, FF1600 legend, back racing to raise awareness and funds for MS.
During 2016, Noel Wilson has already raised several thousand of pounds for his registered charity 'Motor Sport for MS'.
Noel aims to set an official time for an 8 mph mobile scooter on every motor racing circuit and venue in the UK. He has the permission to do this on a race weekend with the benefit of raising awareness and funding from spectators, race drivers and teams.
For 2017, Noel hopes to accelerate awareness by branding Rick's race car and team with the 'Motor Sport for MS' logo. Noel will be at all of Rick's race events too so that he can chat with spectators and collect funds.
Noel's great passion has always been motorsport so it feels right to now join forces with Rick and enjoy the excitement of being part of a race team whilst continuing to raise funds for a charity so close to his heart.
