To engage, through Motorsports opportunities, ill, injured and wounded Service Members and disabled Veterans, affected by military service, leading to aiding in their recovery and rehabilitation.
To use Motorsports opportunities to attract ill, injured and wounded Service Members and disabled Veterans and present them with educational and industry opportunities to aid in their retraining, recovery and rehabilitation.
Operation Motorsport is a Veteran Led and Operated, Not for Profit, based in Brighton, Ontario, serving Canadian & American service members and veterans and was founded on the basis of three simple words: Excite, Engage and Empower. The premise is to engage ill and injured Service Members and veterans affected by military service, through Motorsport activities to aid in their recovery and rehabilitation.
OPERATION MOTORSPORT and SRO Motorsports America announce a colabrative cooperation to advance the Excite, Engage and Empower recovery programs and expand into Blancpain GT World Challenge America!
Operation Motorsport is working in cooperation with SRO Motorsports America to assist military veterans with their recovery and rehabilitation. During each round of the Blancpain GT World Challenge America beginning April 26-28, 2019 at Virginia International Raceway, Veterans in the Operation Motorsport Immersion Program will be partnered up with various teams to learn new abilities and share the transferable skills they have picked up from their service.
This partnership will give Veterans from the Canadian and United States militaries the chance to work with teams to see how they can use their skills from military service and transfer them to useful skills with the race teams and potential civilian jobs. The first teams taking part in the collaboration and accepting veterans are; Alegra Motorsports, KohR Motorsports, JCW Mini and Wright Motorsports.
“Looking back to how I felt at this time last year, I am so thankful we took that leap and entered into partnerships with teams in World Challenge. I was nervous about entering into a new series, but we have had nothing but warm welcomes, and absolute commitments from the teams we're working with.”, said Tiffany Lodder, Executive Director, Operation Motorsport. “I'm proud of the opportunities we've been able to provide for our injured soldiers and veterans as we work together to share opportunities for them to be able to use their transferable skills and know there is a place for them in the civilian world.”
“It’s been remarkable to see the success the Operation Motorsport program has had with Veterans in our paddock,” said Greg Gill, president and CEO, SRO Motorsports America. “We’re excited to work closer with the team and grow the opportunities within our series this season.”
"The time and opportunity spent with Operation Motorsport and it's Beneficiaries has been quiet eye opening and great for all involved. The personalities, hard work, and team ethic runs strong between both the team and beneficiaries alike. We are thankful and hopeful to be of great help to these outstanding military service men and women, that have endured so much, to spend the time with us to engage and excite them in our motorsports program. We hope it provides them with they need to excel and opens them to a whole new world of opportunity in the motorsports world, to help their personal healing process. All the beneficiaries that we have had to date have been amazing individuals that bring something special and each unique to our team. We hope to keep this partnership with Operation Motorsport going for many years to come, and we hope to keep learning from one another to take the program to a place the beneficiaries see as a helping moment in their lives that they will never forget. Alegra Motorsports is very proud to be a part of this program and will never forget each of the awesome individuals that have come to work with us."
