SSGC hits the track at Goodwood

We recently took to the track at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit to give military veterans a high-speed day out to remember.

We joined our nominated charity Mission Motorsport at the West Sussex venue to offer passenger rides to former military personnel ahead of Armed Forces Day.

Among the famous faces supporting the day were Chris Harris from BBC TV’s Top Gear and former British Army officer Johnny Mercer MP.

Hands-on commitment

Our CEO David Stubbs spent the day giving veterans high-octane passenger rides in his race-tuned Honda Civic Type-R as part of our commitment to Mission Motorsport.

David said: “I’ve been involved in motorsport for the last 15 years as an ex-bike racer and I’m a veteran myself, so the link with Mission Motorsport is the perfect place for us as a company to be.

“SSGC is a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant, an ongoing commitment to support the armed forces community, and taking part in days like this is a big part of that pledge.”

A covenant commitment

Mission Motorsport CEO and founder James Cameron said: “Our charity is about using sport to ultimately help people become happy in their careers beyond the military.

“SSGC are doing wonderful things at the moment in employing ex-military people and them joining events like this is part of that covenant commitment they've made. As an act of advocacy, it’s just wonderful.”
