Chevron to support Mission Motorsport
25 April 2013
Chevron Cars Limited is to show its support for Forces' Motorsport Charity Mission Motorsport through its programme in the 2013 GT Cup Championship.
With more than 25 cars on the grid at Donington this weekend for the first round of the year, among them being David Witt's Chevron GT4 and Jordan Witt's Chevron GT3, 2013 promises to be the biggest year yet for the GT Cup series, which boasts an impressive entry list of supercars from an array of prestigious marques.
As a result of the continuing growth of the series, Chevron has taken the opportunity to introduce Mission Motorsport to the championship and assist in building awareness for the charity through the sport.
Mission Motorsport branding will appear on all entrants' cars at each round of the GT Cup this year, and Major Jim Cameron, Founder and Director of the charity, will be present in the paddock at Donington with wounded, injured and sick service personnel as beneficiaries of Mission Motorsport.
“It's a great association that we are developing with Mission Motorsport, and a fantastic charity to support,” David Witt said. “We will be welcoming service personnel into our team garage this weekend, and look forward to having members of Mission Motorsport working with us throughout the season.”
Former Army Major, Adam Marchant-Wincott, Relationship Manager at Mission Motorsport, said the new partnership was a good fit for the charity.
“The guiding principle behind Mission Motorsport is to seek, through the automotive and motorsport industries, vocational opportunities to try and provide hope and a bright and exciting future for wounded, injured and sick personnel,” he said. “All at Mission Motorsport offer their deepest gratitude to Chevron and the GT Cup organisers for this chance to support serving, and former serving, armed forces personnel in conjunction with this championship.”
