- Sep. 7, 2011 - RUNCORN, U.K. --
Matthew has spent the year competing at high speed in the Pirelli Kick Energy Junior 1000 championship and has won 2 of the rounds held so far. However, as Matthew is still only 16, he’ll have to hand the driver’s seat over to his father to sit legally behind the wheel as the rally car is pulled along the public highway. Matthew will be along to collect money and help pull the rally car
"I’m very happy to be involved in the event, the car will be going a little slower than usual but I’m sure it will be great fun and it’s all for a good cause" said Matthew.
As well as the team pulling the car there will be another team calling in pubs and restaurants on the route to collect money for the appeal.
Organiser Graham Raeburn (co-driver to Matthew in the rally championship)
said "We are grateful to Matthew for getting involved in the event, we hope people along the route will support a worthy cause and hopefully we can raise over £1,000 for Children in Need."
