Project Aim  

We need your help to introduce someone new into motorsport and to support the Stilyan Petrov Leukaemia Foundation

Project Description

Martin and I set up Go4ItRacing with the aim of helping a motorsport enthusiast to go racing.  Both of us came to motor racing in our 40’s when we managed to scrape enough pennies together to get started in the BRSCC Mazda MX5 Championship.  Not everyone is in a position to do that on their own and we wanted to give someone the chance to experience the thrills of motor racing who might not otherwise be able to take part.

So we conceived the Go4ItRacing Prize draw and ran it for the first time last year.  Our inaugural winner was Alex Soar and he features in the video on this page. 

We couldn’t have asked for a better winner – Alex is the perfect example of who we are trying to help.  An avid fascination with cars and motorsport since his teens saw Alex tinkering with any car whose owner was mad enough to let him near it. Alex spent some time working for Big Performance automotive tuning and became involved with track side support for the Elise cup, and then with SZ Motorsport racing in Classics and Britcar.

He'd always had a yearning to experience driving in a championship – but with a young family it wasn’t really an option.

Alex’s partner Felicity bought him a ticket for our prize draw and Stilyan Petrov drew his ticket – the rest you can see in the video.

How are we hoping you can help?

Well, even with the stirling support of people like MX5City, Pollock Lifts and Creative Touch Design; we ran the competition at a loss last year. The competition tickets on their own do not cover the costs of running a car for the season (approximately £12k) – so we need your help to be able to keep the competition running and to give new people the chance to go racing.

In return, we want to give pledgers a chance to experience a taste of the thrills of being part of motorsport for themselves – from all areas tickets through to one on one driver circuit tuition in one of our fully race prepared Mazda MX5’s.  We’d like to involve everyone in our social media activities and carry the names of pledgers on our cars.  You’ll also know that 10% of everything pledge will support the great work of the Stilyan Petrov Foundation to support individuals and families affected by leukaemia – you can find out more about their work here 

Please take a look at the reward scheme, we hate asking people for money and appreciate you taking the time to look and consider.
