Airwaves shows backing for Brands marshals

The Motorbase Performance-run Airwaves BMW outfit provided a cash boost to marshals working in the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship during the opening weekend of the season at Brands Hatch.

The team held a charity sweepstake on the Grand National in order to raise the donation, with everyone from team boss David Bartrum to drivers Jonny Adam and Rob Collard chipping in. Other leading figures in the paddock also did their bit, including championship chief Alan Gow and race commentator Ben Edwards.

The winner of the sweepstake was Peter Vinten of Trident Trailers in Kent, who saw his 100-1 selection Mon Mome triumph at Aintree. However, Mr Vinten kindly donated his £50 prize to the BARC marshals fund - meaning every penny raised went to help pay for safety equipment and training for race stewards.

“We are delighted to be able to help provide some help for the dedicated marshals who play such a vital role in motorsport, and do a outstanding job of keeping all the competitors and spectators as safe as possible,” Bartrum said.

“We are also very grateful to Peter Vinten of Trident Trailers for putting his winning back into the pot for the marshals, which was a very generous gesture, and also everyone else in the BTCC paddock who contributed.”
