Grant And Mission Motorsport Looking Forward To Cadwell Collaboration

George Grant makes an emotional return to Cadwell Park this weekend (May 31/June 1) as he continues his journey to raise awareness for Mission Motorsport at round three of the MaX5 Racing Championship.

The GGR Motorsport driver travels to Lincolnshire following a promising weekend at Anglesey Circuit last time out where he made further progress with the Mazda MX-5 engineered by the official Armed Forces Charity.

But before he can think about perfecting his lines on the narrow circuit known as the ‘mini Nurburgring’, Grant’s journey north will evoke memories of a similar trip he made 40 years earlier with father, Ronnie.

“His motorsport career started at Cadwell Park in the early 1970s,” reminisced Grant. “He started in Formula Vee – despite having no prior racing experience – where he quickly achieved success. He’s certainly inspired me in what I can achieve and this weekend should hopefully bring back lots of happy memories.”

Four decades on, Lance Corporal David Birrell and Major James Cameron’s crew of mechanics will once again partner the younger Grant in his competitive Cadwell debut, and following a promising performance in Wales earlier this month, he’s looking forward to making further progress.

“I can’t wait to finally get on-track this weekend,” said Grant. “It’s good that this track hasn’t been modified over the years, with the narrow and twisty layout remaining a real challenge. Without a doubt, it’s a proper drivers’ circuit. As I only have a track day here to draw on, I’m under no illusions that my steep learning curve will continue.”

Grant’s confidence will be further boosted knowing his Mk3’s rear end has been modified in order to fully attack the daunting Louth venue over Cadwell’s triple-header.

“We’ve made some improvements since Anglesey that will undoubtedly boost my confidence behind the wheel,” admitted Grant. “We’re also testing on Thursday and Friday, which will help us to make further progress on the tricky layout.

“The steep inclines and changes of direction – especially through Hall Bends – makes you feel almost seasick! I have little idea what to expect when driving in anger, but it should be good fun nonetheless.”

While he’s Taking Fun Seriously, Grant continues to keep one eye on Mission Motorsport’s Race of Remembrance in November. The eight-hour event at Anglesey Circuit will include the traditional commemoration on Remembrance Sunday, coupled with a newer tribute from the charity that assists in rehabilitation and recovery through motorsport.

However, Grant’s immediate focus will be on making another piece of family history in the Lincolnshire Wolds this weekend where he’ll be hoping Cadwell’s multiple crests allow his motorsport mission to soar further.
