Alive to Drive
Mission: Project Le Mans
“Racing gives us a chance to live life to the max. KartForce is the perfect idea and hope you will support it too.” – Damon Hill OBE
Competitive motorsport allows disabled veterans to demonstrate their get up and go.
Competing in mainstream racing has shown these young injured troops that they can achieve far more than anyone expected – more than they believed possible themselves.
The adrenalin of racing helps rebuild confidence and lives.
Lads with severe injuries such as double amputees with missing fingers & thumbs are now able to race on a totally level playing field against non-injured drivers – and win.
After 4 years of team endurance kart racing in events from 2hrs to 24hrs, it’s only natural that these extremely determined British troops want to progress to team endurance racing in cars.
We have proved our success in karts and are now stepping up a league.
“What they’ve achieved is truly amazing and a shining example of what’s great about being British.” – Johnny Herbert
Hence the birth of Team BRIT. A very British project, made possible by British engineering, racing a British car. But most of all, driven by British Bulldog Spirit.
Our ambition is to compete in the Le Mans 24hr, regardless of disabilities.
The lads want to become the first team of injured troops – or drivers with disabilities – to compete in the world famous Le Mans 24hr.
Team BRIT needs your support. We need funding, donations and sponsorship.
You can be part of the team that shows the world what can be achieved – help us make history on the path to Le Mans.

“For troops that are seriously injured and psychologically traumatised, racing provides significant benefits.” – Dr Nigel Hunt – Associate Professor – Nottingham University
