True Heroes Racing is a truly unique organisation formed around a competitive motorcycle racing team, using the world of Motorsport to enthuse and refocus Wounded, Injured and Sick UK Service personnel & Veterans. At the same time we aim to help them to gain a renewed sense of direction, improved social skills and exposure to new experiences and technical skills among like-minded people with UK military backgrounds. This is all done through direct, hands-on involvement and teamwork as part of a motorcycle racing team competing at the highest levels around the UK.
In 2012, the concept of creating a competitive motorcycle race team formed of Wounded, Injured & Sick UK personnel & Veterans came to fruition when serving Royal Navy Warrant Officer, Phil Spencer, founded True Heroes Racing. Back then the team took to the race track for the first time with a single bike, a double amputee rider and a support crew and mechanics formed by injured UK Service personnel entering at a club racing level. Less than a year later, True Heroes Racing burst onto the National scene competing at the British Superbike Championships in the single make Triumph Triple Challenge.
Year-after-year, with the support of a growing number of sponsors and the wider general public, we have gone from strength to strength. Expanding the size of the organisation, increasing the initiatives we are able to fund for our beneficiaries and competing in more an more classes. An increased number of initiatives enables us to offer more and more unique opportunities for more Wounded, Injured and Sick UK Service personnel & Veterans to benefit from being directly involved with True Heroes Racing.
In 2020, despite the impact of the worldwide pandemic, our resolve to continue our mission did not falter as we knew our beneficiaries needed us more than ever. Whilst in a National Covid-19 Lockdown we introduced new remote initiatives and increased contact networks to help our beneficiaries through the tough period. As soon as permission was granted for a return to the race track, we mobilised as many beneficiaries as possible, whilst complying with the restrictions. Even though the world looked different, we were still able to welcome some new members who's daily lives and wider outlook benefited from being involved with True Heroes Racing.
