Show your support to Ukraine with Motorsport UK’s fundraiser

Friday 03 March 2023

Motorsport UK continues to stand united with Federation Automobile d’Ukraine (FAU), the Ukrainian motorsport community and the Ukrainian people.  

In support and solidarity, Motorsport UK launched a fundraising campaign in 2022 and to date has raised over £40,000. 

Motorsport UK has consulted with members of the community who are supporting the delivery of vehicles and aid to Ukraine. In order to deliver an armoured ambulance with medical supplies to Ukraine, Motorsport UK is inviting the community to help the campaign reach £50,000.  

Motorsport UK will conclude the fundraising campaign on 14 April 2023. Upon conclusion, Motorsport UK will use the funds raised to purchase the armoured ambulance and medical supplies before working on logistics to deliver it to Ukraine. 

Motorsport UK Clubs and Members are invited to donate to the campaign HERE. 

Members of the Motorsport UK community have been active in their support and promotion. The Northern Ireland motorsport community and British Motor Sport Training Trust provided donations and messages of support, joining further donors such as the BTRDA, the Association of Motorsport Recovery Operators and many others. 

Motorsport UK licence holder and Hillclimb competitor, Christopher Wigdor, swapped the livery of his 1967 Mallock Mk 6B/8 in period 1600cc Formula 2 trim to Ukraine’s national colours with many other competitors showing support through stickers, badges and much more.   

Fynn Watt, a Motorsport UK licence holder and Rallycross competitor, has also been supporting initiatives to get vehicles and supplies to Ukraine medical teams, making seven trips to the nation.  

Motorsport UK would like to hear from any clubs or members who have already been engaged in fundraising or, have been providing supplies or support to Ukraine and, particularly those who would be interested in assisting with the procurement & logistics to send the armoured ambulance to Ukraine later this year.
