Descartes Sponsors True Heroes Racing for 2023

True Heroes Racing is the only competitive UK motorcycle racing team devoted to the rehabilitation of Wounded, Injured and Sick (WIS) UK Service Personnel and Veterans. True Heroes provides these individuals with an opportunity to refocus and develop, providing exposure to new experiences and enabling a renewed sense of direction. The racing team enables them to gain new technical skills whilst amongst people of a similar UK military background and experience to themselves. 

Descartes is proud to sponsor this unique organization for a fifth consecutive year, “We’re so pleased to sponsor the True Heroes Racing team for another season. The organisation does great work across the UK, both on and off the racetrack,” said Andrew Tavener, Head of Marketing, Descartes Systems UK. “Since forming 10 years ago, it has offered amazing opportunities to various beneficiaries with a variety of physical and mental disabilities, in roles across the entire 2 wheeled motorsport arena. True Heroes Racing is proving to – and inspiring – people that life changing injuries or illness do not have to limit their lifestyle and the choices that people are able to make.” 

“True Heroes Racing strives to provide WIS UK Service personnel and Veterans with the opportunity to be part of an exciting, fun and successful motorcycle racing team. Aside from the exhilaration and fun that comes with being associated with motorcycle racing, we provide our True Heroes Racing beneficiaries with the camaraderie and teamwork ethos that only the military offers. Often this is dearly missed. So, we’re proud that our team offers this to one another,” says Phil Spencer, Founder & Team Principal, True Heroes Racing. “We’re especially thankful for Descartes support over the past four years too. It means that we can continue to provide opportunities to those important WIS UK Service personnel and Veterans who have proudly served our country throughout their careers.” 

The team will be competing in the British Superbikes Championship this year, widely respected as the best domestic motorcycle race championships in the world. This allows True Heroes Racing to create unique opportunities for its beneficiaries and inspire a wide audience at race circuits across the UK and on TV how overcoming adversity can achieve great results.
