Our sponsored hot rod racer Mark Shelper has further boosted his world championship points total – and the fund for his Big Moose charity campaign for mental health and suicide prevention.
Although the latest round of the world championship qualifying series, at Buxton last weekend, was disappointing, it still earned Bristol-based Mark 19 points.
And that translates to £19 from Weltch Media towards his Big Moose mental-health appeal. We’re donating £1 for every qualifying point he scores this year, and if you would like to contribute or spread the word, here is the link.
In August, DAS UK Group generously donated £150 to the appeal.
The Weltch Media logo has been on Mark’s Peugeot 206cc since the start of this season, continuing our long-standing involvement in motorsport. In the past we have supported Ben Power in the UK Legends Car Championship and James Holman in the Irish Championship. We’ve also backed James in several online iRacing events, and in 2018 we teamed up with Mendips Raceway to present the Weltch Media West of England Hot Rod Championship.
National hot rods are the top level of short track racing in the UK, with sophisticated lightweight production car replicas whose engines produce around 240bhp.
