Mission Motorsport is run by veterans, serving officers and motorsport professionals. We are appointed as the Combined Services’ official providers of adaptive motorsport, seeking wherever possible to merge the activities of the disabled and those in need with able bodied servicemen and women.
Appointed by the British Army Motorsport Association, and operating in direct support of the Defence Recovery Capability, Mission Motorsport provides respite, rehabilitation, recreational opportunities and training to those affected by military operations within the framework of Motorsport.
How we can help you
Our primary audience are the servicemen and women coming through Headley Court and Recovery Centres such as Tedworth House, and those who are brought to us by Battle Back – the UK Military initiative that uses Adaptive Adventure Training and Sports Rehabilitation to help seriously wounded, injured or sick Service Personnel and Veterans.
Mission Motorsport provides a range of training courses and educational opportunities to suit the needs of individuals. These range from one day basic car maintenance courses at our workshop near Tedworth House; to a Modular Motorsport Foundation course culminating in a residential placement working with a major race team. Our powerboat crews have gained RYA qualifications up to instructor level and a City & Guilds in seamanship skills is available to those that desire it.
In 2012 we have placements with major manufacturers – not least Bentley and Nissan, with race car manufacturers and with race teams. Not just for budding engineers and mechanics – we’ve opportunities in management, project management, HR, security, logistics, events and customer relations, including media placements with the BBC and in the motoring media. Sport is important, it is restorative and healing, but it can’t just be about the here and now. We work hard in order to secure job offers for our beneficiaries and to help give them that start on a successful second career.
