Race aces have put the miles in under their own steam in a motorsport effort which has contributed more than £30,000 to NHS charities.
Courier country stars Jonny Adam and Sandy Mitchell were among a socially distanced grid of almost 50 British Racing Drivers’ Club members who took on the weekend half-marathon as part of a fundraising challenge launched by Formula E and World Endurance Championship driver Sam Bird.
Aston Martin factory driver and four-time British GT champion Adam completed the run in the area around his home near Warwick.
Adam, a GTE Pro class winner at the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans, has been taking on virtual rivals in The Race sim series to stay sharp behind the wheel during lockdown.
For 20-year-old Mitchell, it was a matter of putting in the laps around a garden field at his home near the Angus village of Letham.
The Lamborghini Squadra Corse junior driver was elevated to the BRDC SuperStars scheme at the beginning of the year – the only Scot in a 13-strong list of elite home-grown talent.
He is due to partner multiple BTCC race-winner Rob Collard when the British GT season resumes, as well as returning Stateside for the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America series in which he enjoyed an impressive 2019 debut season.
The half-marathon challenge field featured names from a range of motorsport disciplines, with former Olympic sprinter Iwan Thomas also taking part.
