Just before Christmas, Mobil 1 Team Sussex handed over the first donation of the 2013/14 year to their nominated charity Help for Heroes, which was received by team patron Dr Johnson Beharry VC.
The University of Sussex team will be participating in the forthcoming Institution of Mechanical Engineers Formula Student competition, where they are hoping for a successful placement in the 2014 competition after achieving a fantastic 2nd national placement in the endurance race in 2013 – their best position to date.
Donations to the charity are raised via their innovative NoseCone club which enable individual sponsors to have a photo of a loved one placed on the nose cone of the race car for a minimum donation of £10. Quite a conversation piece and a great gift!
Team Sussex are self funding and are actively looking for all levels of sponsors to assist this year’s entry – literally from the nose cone upwards…
