Highcroft launches bid to help Japan

David Brabham's Highcroft Racing ARX-01e will carry decals at Sebring appealing for help for those affected by the devastating earthquake in Japan.
Highcroft Racing has launched an appeal to help the victims of the Japanese earthquake disaster in conjunction with Network for Good.

The team's Honda Performance Development ARX-01e will feature signage at this weekend's opening round of the American Le Mans Series and Intercontinental Le Mans Cup directing fans to the website – http://www.highcroftracing.com/help-japan.

The on-car graphic - which also incorporates a Japanese flag - will be displayed on the sidepods and rear wing of the new HPD prototype.

Like everyone throughout the world, the team at Highcroft Racing were shocked and saddened by the horrific earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on Friday 11 March.

The nine magnitude 'quake resulted in a tragic loss of life on an enormous scale. Thousands more have had their lives torn apart - losing their homes, their loved ones and their livelihood.

“It is with great pride that we have represented Honda since 2007 in international sports car racing - we have many many fans from Japan and we hope and pray that they, and the entire country, can stay safe and stay strong at this terrible time,” team boss Duncan Dayton said.

“We thank our fans for their support and urge them to not only donate what they can, but to take time to do as we are doing this week - taking a few moments to reflect on how lucky we are to have the love of our families and the warmth of our friendships. We get to go racing this week, while people in Japan are trying to rebound from having their entire lives shattered”

Network for Good makes it as easy to donate and volunteer as it is to shop online, creating a world where every time you are inspired to help someone or something, you can, with just a few clicks of a mouse.

By visiting the Network for Good link via the Highcroft site, race fans can choose to donate money to any of 21 different charities including the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Save the Children and World Vision.

Good for Highcroft.Now will any F1 team have the courage to display a decal calling for Bahrain to allow democracy and human rights? Maybe fans could show the way with banners.
