A fantastic team and amazing part of our sidecar family is in need of our help.

I have been asked to set this page up on behalf of Ian Hamilton who is a personal friend and sponsor of the team.

As everyone now knows, whilst racing at Knockhill last weekend Kershaw Racing were involved in a terrible accident on Sunday leaving both Steve and Rob in hospital. Both suffered quite severe injuries in the accident and many of the sidecar paddock have expressed their wish to assist both Rob and Steve as well as their families in this difficult time.

Any money raised will go to help both families so money issues never cross their mind. It will assist them with travel to and from hospital as well as any aftercare, loss of salary etc. Everyone who knows these guys will know that they truly are the friendliest of teams and would go out of their way to help others which is why we should all do the same.

I have set a high target so it encourages people to dig as deep as possible.

Lee Watson will be at Silverstone this weekend taking donations which will be delivered to the families after the weekend.

Latest Update from Kershaw Racing Facebook Page
“Kershaw Racing can now confirm that due to a electrical failure the boys were involved in a serious crash at Knockhill yesterday. Both were taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee where they are currently receiving further care. Stephen has suffered several broken bones including a fractured vertebrate and bones in his hand. Rob is in a critical condition with lower body paralysis. We would like to thank all of the medical staff and marshals at Knockhill for their swift and excellent support, and everyone else at the circuit who helped the team. Thank you for all of your kind thoughts and wishes, we ask that you respect our privacy during these next few difficult weeks. We will keep you posted with any news as it becomes available. Thank you.”

So come one guys and girls dig deep for these gentlemen of our sport and their families in their time of need.

Thanks to everyone who has donated to this amazing cause. Who would have thought that we'd ever reach such an amazing target?.

As you all know, the funds are aiding Rob to adjust to his condition with adapting his home and workshop.

The total from all the outlets have reached over £20,000 now and Im sure all the families involved are truly taken a back from the amazing generosity shown by so many and are truly thankful for the support.

I have closed donations to this Go Fund Me page now but you can still donate directly by contacting Steve Kershaw on Facebook or alternatively you can contact me and I will point you in the right direction.

Thanks again Folks

Seasons greetings and have a wonderful Christmas

Update: Steve and Rob are continuing down their long recovery journeys. Steve has spent a week at a friend's house, making use of specialist facilities to aid the transition to home. He has had his hand reset & cast and is due his first follow up for his back injuries this week. Rob underwent spinal surgery last week and is starting his recovery where he will remain lying flat for up to 6 weeks, before beginning rehabilitation work. There are still many weeks of recovery ahead for the boys and we would like to thank you all again for your continued support and encouragement.
