Hey everyone, Tommy here…
June 5th will mark ten years since I set up WTF1 and to celebrate our 10th anniversary, we’ll be holding a charity race to support the NHS Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospital.
Last year, my brother-in-law Tom sadly passed away after a long fight with heart disease. Without Harefield Hospital’s support we wouldn’t have had Tom in our lives for as long as he was, nor would his baby daughter be in this world.
Harefield are in desperate need of funds to help redevelopment of the hospital and we want to help them as much as we can.
Date – 5th June 2020
Races – Races – 45 minute F3 Sprint Race at Laguna Seca and a 90 minute GT race at Silverstone on iRacing
Endurance Race: 16:45 UK time
F3 Race: 19:15 UK time
Live stream available on the WTF1 YouTube Channel and The Race’s YouTube Channel.

Tom was a huge F1 and WTF1 fan and we’d love to honour him by raising loads of money for the hospital that did so much for him. We hope you join us for the event next Friday and help us raise as much money as we can!
