Blesma Members Sapper Tom Folwell, Corporal Davie Birrell, Private Mark Allen and Private Ryan Goodman – who have lost eight legs between them – have featured in The Daily Mirror and on their website for making history by competing in Britiain's toughest 24-hour karting event this Bank Holiday weekend.

The team were brought together by KartForce, an organisation founded by Dave Player that helps injured service personnel get into motorsport through specially adapted Karts.

'Team Legs' (as the guys nicknamed themselves!) will become the first team of injured troops to compete in the British 24-hour Karting Championship which will involve 70 other able-bodied teams. They were also the first team of injured troops to take part in the race at Le Mans.

KartForce has given these guys the opportunity to compete at a high level and get their adrenaline going, whilst keeping active mentally and phyiscally.


Good luck to Team Legs for the race!!
