Launched at Thruxton Motor Circuit on 1st March 2012 in order to help those affected by military operations by engagement through sport, the charity recognised from the outset the astonishing inspirational and healing potential of sport. Motorsport is unique in that the disabled compete against the able bodied on a level playing field - there is no separate category for disability. Engineering allows us to adapt the vehicle, not the sport, and that leveller is a strong draw that the charity harnesses to help those who may be hard to reach - connecting them with amazing opportunities for second careers, beyond the military.
The Forces' Motorsport Charity, whose motto is “Race Retrain Recover” is MoD's competent authority for motor sport as a recovery activity, and is a Royal Foundation (the charitable trust of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) and Endeavour Fund supported initiative.
The charity's dedicated career managers have placed more than 200 Wounded, Injured and Sick service leavers into employment since the inaugural Invictus Games in September 2014. Over 2000 veterans have found work through the charity’s programs.
TeamSport are please to support this excellent charity and donate karting experiences to Mission Motorsport, the forces' motorsport charity, to help support the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations and their mental health.
