Ian Smith is seeking sponsorship for the Prostate Cancer UK Rallycross Team to raise awareness and support the charity.
Prostate Cancer UK Rallycross Team – Ian Smith has advanced stage cancer and has been building a £40k Super Modified Rallycross car to race in support of the charity Prostate Cancer UK to help raise awareness of this killer of men. Ian is racing in two championships, the BTRDA Clubmans Rallycross Championship and the 5 Nations British National Rallycross Championship. Once Ian gets to the stage where he can’t physically race any longer due to the cancer then the car will be auctioned and the proceeds given to the cancer charity. We are seeking a sponsor to invest £6500 so we can finish the build, in return for large branding on both sides of the car for the next several seasons. We are racing in 18 events each season including two in Europe, and also showing the car at many other events, including next year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed when we attempt the Hillclimb. This gets shown on BBC2 and the British National Rallycross Championship gets shown on BT Sport 2.
