We're thrilled to throw our support behind the awesome My Name'5 Doddie Foundation which raises funds to aid research into Motor Neurone Disease - we'll be wearing their logo with pride on our car alongside Age Scotland and Alzheimer Scotland !
Scott Hastings - Chairman of the MN5DF and Doddie Weir OBE was delighted to add this: "We would both like to thank Alex Milne and his Flying Haggis Race team for their fantastic support of My Name'5 Doddie Foundation. The fact that the car will be emblazoned with our Foundation logo and those of Alzheimer Scotland and Age Scotland means that the Flying Haggis Race team will be flying the flag for 3 of Scotland's great charities and we are looking forward to roaring the team onto victory at Silverstone in April."
Flying Haggis Racing with SST and R and J Motorsport is a newly formed motor racing team assembled initially to compete in a very exciting race series The C1 Endurance Series. The series introduces the world famous F1 Grand Prix circuit to the calendar with a 24 hour Endurance race. There will be 100 identical cars on the starting grid making this the biggest line up ever in UK motor racing. The team driver line up is Robert Jobson, Davis Reid, David Rybowski, David Christie and Alex Milne. Your name doesn't need to be David but it definitely helps. In addition there will be another 11 team members in the pitlane doing everything possible for car and drivers.
Our goal is simply for a bunch of Scots to head south for such a prestigious and exciting event, enjoy ourselves, spread the word for the charities, raise some money for such worthy causes and emm, Win.
This is a huge logistic exercise which has been 6 months in the planning and our team is second to none in talent, commitment and endeavour and is ably supported by our sponsors of SST, R and J Motorsport, Union Direct, Rentec Autocare, Cramond Residence, Ayrshire Gasworks and AGS Training. We are indebted to all for their fantastic support without which we couldn't do this.
So that's Silverstone and The big one in our little car. We are also involved in other race series throughout Scotland and will have at least 4 of the team racing in Knockhill event Superlap Scotland and regional and national sprint and hill climb championships. Our line up for them includes 2 powerful Subarus, an Audi TTRS Plus, a Renault Megane and a Streetka. At our first Flying Haggis Racing event , leading driver showed what we're about by taking all honours over the first weekend of The Northern Counties and Cross Border Sprint Series. We are so proud of his great start but we all fully intend to join his success.
