Brands Hatch-Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund

Great day today. Gave rides to injured servicemen & women at Brands Hatch today in the Mosler MT900S. There were about 80+ service personal who came over for the event. Track was very damp to start but semi dry by the afternoon. The Marines and Navy guys I took out could not have been nicer. They seemed genuinely thrilled to go out for a few laps. Organization was great and one of the key organizers of the day was rmd: Ferrari Life - View Profile: rmd

Awesome. Great cause. Not even close to payback for everything these service men and women do for us.

Nonetheless, it is very cool to see you have the chance to at least give them a fun day in what had to be an killer ride.

Thanks. It really was a good day for a great cause.

I can't even imagine what many of these young soliders have been through.

That's awesome - places life in perspective.

Funny thing is as much as the Royal Marines enjoyed it you probably enjoyed it more.

Good to see win wins

I think they really enjoyed themselves, had a couple of guys get into the Mosler and say they had been waiting all day to get a ride in it.

It was a great day, the morning runs we're a little sideways off line
One lady said at least your putting your foot down, well it seemed wrong not to

That it did.

Even better, everyone stayed out of the gravel.
