Adoption by the TVRCC Speed Championship
As some of you may know, we were adopted by the for TVRCC Speed Championship 2016/2017 thanks to Richard Bream who is a member. The TVRCC Speed Championship are part of the TVR Car Club which is the only Club in the world that caters for all TVR enthusiasts. It currently has around 6,000 members in 34 countries in all five continents. The Speed Championship is the Sprint and Hillclimb racing series (only for TVR cars) which this year had 28 registered competitors. Being adopted meant that most, if not all, competitors' cars carried the Marfan Trust logo throughout the season. Also, the organisers operated a “pounds for points” system where the drivers were able to pledge a certain amount in relation to how many championship points they individually scored throughout the season with the money going to the Marfan Trust. Overall TVR raised a wonderful £3000 for the Marfan Trust and hopefully will be adopting us again next year. As well as raising funds for us, they have also raised tonnes of awareness of Marfan Syndrome.
This is fantastic, thank you so much Richard and all the members and organisers of the TVR Car Club especially Heath Briggs & Bill Campion for donating the auctioned prizes, Shelagh & Peter Ash and Sara & Steve Mogg for their winning auction bids, Andrew Gray & Geoff Gwynne for the bids on the Hamilton Hat but most of all the marvellous Jo Briars & Steve Hunter for adopting the Marfan Trust for this season and next. We are extremely grateful.
