Our output is in three areas.

Experience – Firstly, in the provision of days out, privileged access to big events and in a first hand, front seat, white knuckle introduction to an exciting and engaging sport.
Competition – The preparation, development, coaching and teamwork involved in competition is a hugely cathartic experience. By engaging in sprints, hill climbs, track racing, and rallying we engender a real team ethos. It is about much more than just the driving – car and boat preparation, logistics, support and race management all present challenges to be overcome. This can greatly help in the rebuilding of an individual’s confidence and provides emotional as well as practical support, and we are chock full of examples of where that is exactly the case – where participation in motorsport is changing lives for the better.
Vocation – Mission Motorsport provides a range of training courses and educational opportunities to suit the needs of individuals. These range from one day basic car maintenance courses at our workshop near Tedworth House; to a Modular Motorsport Foundation course culminating in a residential placement working with a major race team
