During this unprecedented period of uncertainty in the UK and beyond, the Castle Combe Circuit team is livening things up for motorsport fans with ‘Combe TV’ – a Facebook Live show that airs every Sunday evening.
Hosted by Sales and Marketing Director, Tom Davis, and the circuit’s leading commentator, Chris Dawes, Combe TV invites special guests along as the hosts discuss all things Castle Combe and motorsport.
Confirmed for the show on Sunday, 14 June is Founder and CEO of Mission Motorsport, James Cameron!
Please note – this show will begin at 6pm rather than the usual 7pm.
ABOUT JAMES CAMERON
Having served 17 years in the Royal Tank Regiment, James returned from his last tour of Afghanistan in 2011, determined to help those whose lives he had seen impacted by military service.
As such, Mission Motorsport was created – a charity that has gone on to become one of the most successful of its kind within the UK and beyond.
A Grade-A race instructor, James’ enthusiasm and vision – to harness the power of sport for wider good – drives the organisation to this day. His determination to put duty of care for those in need first sets the tone for everything that the charity does. He embodies Post Traumatic Growth, and works hard to promote the same in others.
ABOUT MISSION MOTORSPORT
Launched at Thruxton Motor Circuit in 2012 in order to help those affected by military operations by engagement through sport, Mission Motorsport recognised from the outset the astonishing inspirational and healing potential of sport.
Motorsport is unique in that the disabled compete against the able-bodied on a level playing field – there is no separate category for disability. Engineering allows the charity to adapt their vehicles, rather than the sport, and that leveller is a strong draw that Mission Motorsport harnesses to help those who may be hard to reach – connecting them with amazing opportunities for second careers, beyond the military.
The forces’ motorsport charity, Mission Motorsport has lived by the same mission statement since day one: ‘Race, Retrain, Recover’.
