Table of Contents

How Race2Recovery was founded as a fledgling racing team of wounded soldiers who decided to take up the challenge of cross-country motorsport. The team: drivers, co-drivers and support personnel, with the focus on injured and disabled personnel including the first amputee driver to compete in international rally raids, Captain Tony Harris of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, and triple amputee Tom Neathway of the Parachute Regiment. The vehicles: the team is entering four QT Wildcats, the British-made car of choice for reliability and performance over the toughest terrain. Training and preparation: driver training, vehicle adaptation, medical and first aid, mobility in adverse conditions, bivouac rehearsals, nutrition, personal fitness, accidents and fire. The support network: behind-the-scenes personnel and Land Rover support vehicles on events; fundraising endeavours; family, wives and girlfriends. The build-up events: British Cross-Country Championship events; international practice on the Tuareg Rallye; training in Morocco. The Dakar Rally Raid, 5 - 20 January 2013: 5,500 miles in two weeks through the most arduous terrain in Peru, Argentina and Chile. Published in association with FireStep Publishing.

About the Author

Stephanie Temple is a freelance journalist and writer who has followed Race2Recovery since its inception, inspired by the cause and determination of these veterans. A keen sportswoman, she is never one to be found sitting on the sofa with her feet up. Until her involvement with Race2Recovery, she had never set foot in any type of racing car but now understands, more than most, the passion of a petrolhead and is thrilled to be involved with the team.
