Serving Para is raising funds on UK drag car racing scene

Posted on

Serving Para Clarke has taken the SUPPORT OUR PARAS name on to the drag car racing scene.  With some much needed upgrades to ensure it can reach the speeds needed on the circuit, the car, called ‘Never Forgotten’, will be raising funds and promoting the charity when it races.

The car’s race number, 453, is a tribute to the number of British soldiers lost in Afghanistan and Clarke hopes the car will become known as a tribute to the fallen.

Clarke Hillyard 'Never Forgotten'The car made its debut outing recently at the end of the UK drag racing season and the car proved to be a popular talking point, with many people asking about the charity as well.  Clarke managed 4 passes and also got a new personal best at 12.7 on the ¼ mile track.  The car will be put through its paces during testing over the next few months, ready to race again when the season begins next year.

Big thanks to Clarke for choosing to give something back and we wish him all the best when the season begins again next year!
