Wisbech-based racing driver is on the grid to raise awareness of Parkinson's UK
A Wisbech man who is competing in the 2020 Formula Vee UK single seater motor racing championship, has transformed his car on the track to raise awareness of the charity Parkinson’s UK.
Bill 'Wom' Garner, 55, who is competing in his fourth season, has been driving with his TWR10 car displaying the charity’s strapline on each side of the main engine cover for the duration of the 2020 season. As a result, the car has become one of the most photographed vehicles on the grid in recent years.
Wom has been inspired to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and carry the logo on his race car, after a close friend was diagnosed with the condition in autumn 2019. In March this year, Wom’s uncle was also diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
