My son Chris Ingram from Manchester has dedicated his life to becoming a champion rally driver. He and his co-driver Ross Whittock are now leading the FIA European Rally championship after Round 6, with 2 rallies to go. Chris's life ambition is to become the first British driver in 50 years to win the overall FIA (federation international autosport) European Rally Championship title in his hopes of getting to the WRC World Rally Championship in 2020
Chris puts every penny into his rally career. The boys have been desperately struggling for financial support this season, due to a main sponsor pulling out last minute from their motorsport sponsorships. Can you imagine last weekend they missed out on winning the Junior title and the 100,000 euro prize money by a sickening 0.3 seconds at the Barum Czech Rally, won by a local Czech funded driver
Chris will tell me off for setting this up but as a lot of people have commented on Chris' facebook saying we should set up a funding page to get the boys to the final rounds in Cyprus and Hungary to race for the title
They should be Car 1 at the Rally Cyprus which has been won in the past by his heroes Colin Mcrae and Sebastian Loeb. However, at the moment Chris & Ross have little chance to compete and fight for the European Championship due to their lack of funds :-(. Chris has to raise £25,000 for each rally, and is working on sponsorships every day.
Can you please consider to support the guys in the pursuit of their dreams and hopefully be the first Brits to win the ERC in 50 years, and be a part of their journey?
Please see this video which Chris made at the start of the year to send to potential sponsors -
