Rebuilding Mighty Mini #30

£2,755 of £2,500 goal

Raised by 31 people in 5 months
Hi my name is Laura Harris and I race car number 30 in the Mighty Mini Championship. After a promosing year, the last race of the season arrived....Pembrey race circuit in Pembrokshire on the 14th of October. I was set to come at least 7th in the championship (which would have been my best result by a long way), but before I could even race it all went very wrong, through no fault of my own...

During the practice session, I was on my last lap of the 20 minute session and half way round the hairpin when another driver lost control of his car, hitting me in the side at full pelt sending me into the tyre wall at some speed. I was left with whiplash and internal and external bruising, and my Mini, Betty, had condsiderable damage. I'm now improving but the same can't be said for Betty.

I run on a very tight budget and turn up to race meetings completly unaided, just me and my old Passat towing Betty on the trailer. I recently won the Neil Fernley Commitment Award for recognition of the effort I put in.

Something like this could potentially stop me racing, and doing the thing I love, for years. 
I'm raising money for parts, labour and paint to get Betty out on track for what hopefully will be a succesfull 2018 season.

For a donation of £ I00 I'll be more than happy to put your company logo sticker on the car for 2018. You can contact me through my Facebook page @LauraHarrisRacing 

Thank you for your support,
Laura

Works started, a little later than planned, on stripping the old shell. Work will soon begin on the new shell.
Thank you again for all your help, Laura x

Wow...made it to my goal. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. You're all amazing.
I'm going to leave the campaign open as I really don't know exactly how much this is going to cost. We start stripping the car next week, and will then be able to properly assess the damage.
I will keep you updated!

WOW, thank you sooo much to the people who have donated so far I never expected anything close to that so soon. You're all amazing!
I thought £1000 would be achievable (but no where near the amount I really need to fix Betty), but not as achievable as it has been. So I have upped the goal to £2500 which should hopefully see her fixed and track ready again.
Once again, thank you for the bottom of my heart.
