At this critical point in their personal journey True Heroes
Racing really offers them something out of the ordinary; with
the opportunity to be a member of a team again and also with
something exciting and new to engage in and focus on.
True Heroes Racing really makes them feel they play a key role as part of a team again and immerses them back into a military style
environment, critically with all the banter and camaraderie they miss. The team is not just about the racing, but the whole build up
surrounding it as well.
The project has already successfully encouraged WIS Service personnel back into education and has also encouraged members to focus on their general health and fitness. In time, and with continued growth, we want to be able to offer motorsport related employment, providing WIS Service personnel with further new challenges outside the military.
The team uses the fast and frenetic world of motorcycle racing, but not
as spectators, as competitors.
Being a member of True Heroes Racing
proves to it’s members, and the wider audience, that they can compete on a level playing field with their able bodied counterparts, as well as critically proving that their injuries do not have to limit the
activities they can undertake or the lifestyle choices they make.
