Rac­ing champ’s song for pal

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A JU­NIOR rac­ing champ has recorded a char­ity sin­gle to help a friend who suf­fered lifechang­ing in­juries in a crash.

Cameron Roberts, for­merly of Sid­ding­ton, raced in the same team with Billy Monger, who lost the lower half of both of his legs in an ac­ci­dent at Don­ing­ton Park at Easter.

Away from the track Cameron, 18, has am­bi­tions for a ca­reer in mu­sic and de­cided to fundraise for his friend.

He has recorded and pro­duced a ver­sion of Alis­tair Grif­fin’s 2010 hit ‘Just Drive’, a song well known in rac­ing cir­cles for its use in Sky Sports’ For­mula One cov­er­age.

Cameron, who per­forms un­der the name of CJ Roberts, has remixed the song to give it a pop/ dance sound and added vo­cal­ist Quinti. The song is now avail­able to down­load on most plat­forms.

Cameron, who is study­ing mu­sic at South Cheshire Col­lege, said: “Billy has been amaz­ingly strong and coura­geous through­out his or­deal and I hope we can raise some more funds to help him along the long road ahead.”

Cameron, a for­mer Mar­ton and Ea­ton Bank schools pupil, has been rac­ing since he was lit­tle and won the karting Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship in 2012.
