Jessica Hawkins 'Driven' campaign #imbackingjess
As a young developing driver passionate about my racing, I'm excited to announce that through private sponsorship I now have the budget to contest the next round of MSA Formula at Oulton Park on 6th and 7th June. MSA Formula is part of the TOCA package headlining with the BTCC with massive audiences, live ITV 4 coverage and a palpable buzz of excitement at each round. A great spectacle to witness and be a part of, but, as a racing driver, watching from the sidelines as my peers compete never was an option!
A former karting champion and holder of many titles including the British Open, my aspiration is to convert these successes into car racing wins, but you have to be in it to win it. Despite very limited track time in a car, in 2013/14 I contested 4 Michelin Clio Cup races and chalked up 3 podium finishes and a fastest lap, and last season I was fortunate enough to compete as a guest driver in the Silverstone round of Formula Ford.
These experiences have inspired me to consider new ways of raising the necessary budget to go racing, so I am launching my gofundme campaign to help get me on the grid beyond Oulton Park, hopefully for the rest of the season. Opportunities to race competitively are rare and funding has to be chased with utter grit, determination and self belief, not for the feint hearted!
My sponsor has pledged to match pound for pound any funds I can raise through this project. Every contribution is valuable, but even if you are unable to support me financialy you can still show your support with a 'like', sharing this with all your friends and family, the more people that hear about it the greater the momentum and chances of reaching the goal, and I thank you.
If you are able to support me with a personal contribution of £50 or more, you will be entered into a draw for 2 free tickets to Sunday's racing at any rounds I contest with funds raised via this campaign, where you can come along, meet me and the team, and enjoy a great days racing action.
As well as entry to the above draw, anyone donating £200 or more will receive an #imbackingjess campaign Tshirt and beanie hat.
In addition to the above, supporters contributing £500 or more will be guaranteed a personal thank you message on the car for 1 race during the season.
Please ensure your contribution includes name and contact details.
Livery space is also available for interested parties so if you are a business looking for advertising opportunities, please contact me off-line to discuss options.
Tel 07720 548315
All funds received will be spent on the car, team and championship entry fees, and every single contribution will push me and the car closer to that grid. Let's do this!, spread the word and go viral #imbackingjess
