Har­ri­son to race for char­ity cause

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

For­mula Ju­nior racer Andy Har­ri­son is aim­ing to raise £5000 for Rac­ing for De­men­tia at the HSCC Fi­nals meet­ing at Sil­ver­stone (October 15/16).

For­mer Mini ace Har­ri­son has switched to a 1960 En­voy this sea­son and de­cided to try and raise money for the char­ity set up by Sir Jackie Stew­art af­ter his wife He­len was di­ag­nosed with the con­di­tion.

“My fa­ther Peter passed away aged 77 last year and he had suf­fered from de­men­tia,” said Har­ri­son. “It was ter­ri­ble as peo­ple who suf­fer with it lose who they are and also lose their soul.

“And it’s a very im­por­tant day for me too as October 15 is my dad’s birth­day, so I will be es­pe­cially think­ing of him.”
