KARTFORCE – Karting for Injured Troops

Team BRIT - Alive to Drive


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

“After the race yesterday he came home in a glorious mood, was laughing and smiling and voluntarily told me about his day so thank you for that.  This has really helped him come out of his shell as he’s been really low for a while.”

“Karting has helped me control my aggression.  I was really angry, confused and out of control, and even lost my temper during a race and stormed off.  I only did that once, as I’ve learnt to control my aggression, stay calm during incidents and focus on my racing.”

“Cracking effort from all the lads over the weekend given the conditions, especially that lightning start he came flying past me in 10th like I was stood still!”

“Thank you for everything you’ve done for our country – sorry you got injured”

11 year old boy who then shook every lad’s by the hand.

“You really do give so many other injured lads something to focus on, something to look forward to.”

“KartForce has helped me to interact with other people at race meeting and helped me massively with my PTSD issues.”

“I tell you something, this karting has and is helping more than anything else has (except my wife and my old band).  God help anyone who tries to take it away from me.”

“It was an honour to race alongside such a gutsy and brave bunch of fellas – you all have my utmost respect!! Well done and hopefully we will see you throughout the coming year and again at the 24 hour next year.”

“Thanks for everything so far and that’s from the heart, I don’t think you realise how the karting has helped my recovery already. It gives me something fun to focus on instead of all the other shit that life throws at you.”

“The excitement on his face when I measured him for his race suit was something I hadn’t seen in ages.  I just wanted to say from a long suffering wife thank you for making him smile!”

“I got the enjoyment of racing 3 of your guys the other day at Sandown Park – some of the most enjoyable racing I’ve done in years.  Thank you very much.”
