The Kent-based Fighters Race Team (FFRT) aims to raise funds for the Fire Fighters Charity, which enhances the quality of life for serving and retired fire fighters, fire personnel and their families.
The FFRT will be at the Autosport event at the NEC Birmingham on January 11th – 12th to showcase their self built and bespoke 1978 classic Mini which will be used to compete in the SEMSEC race series starting in 2014.
Says Dave Franks, the Team Principal and operational Fire fighter at Herne Bay in Kent: “The build of our racing Mini is coming along nicely thanks to the kind support and sponsorship by many local businesses. The Autosport event will enable us to showcase the FFRT as well as give visitors an experience of a lifetime.
“Elite Virtual Racing are providing us with racing simulator pods, which are incredible. The person who completes a lap the fastest will win a fantastic Classic American Muscle V8 experience day with our friends at classicamericanmuscle.co.uk. It’s going to be a blast!”
