On 11 and 12 June, Martin Rich will be competing at Le Mansto to raise £100,000 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity in memory of his father, and is encouraging supporters to play their own part in racing’s greatest spectacle.
Racing the Evora GTE for the Lotus Jetalliance team, non-professional racing driver Martin Rich has had the Le Mans car emblazoned with the names of the supporters who have participated in his fundraising efforts by making donations.
Losing his Dad in 2009 to Sarcoma cancer and having a passion for motor sport, Martin resolved that if he ever managed to race at Le Mans he would use the opportunity to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support who provided help and support during his Dad’s illness.
The first Lotus to enter the world’s most famous race since the 1990’s, those who donated towards the charity will see their names race around the course on the momentous occasion.
