True Grit.
Graeme raced in an enduro event at Rogershill Raceway today. Seeing the exhausted riders sliding in the mud, coming off, picking the heavy mud covered bikes and themselves back up again is to witness a feat of endurance. Watching Graeme do it all one handed is truly something else. Hats off to you Graeme "Billy" Billington.

Race2Recovery is with Graeme Billington.

Graeme's racing his #Husquvana this Sunday 18th Feb at Rogershill Raceway Enduro event in Dorset. Graeme was badly injured in a bomb blast in Afghanistan whilst serving in the military, losing the use of his right arm entirely, meaning steering, throttle, brake and roadbook are all done with his left hand. This bloke's got some bottle! We'll be cheering him on this weekend and will let you know how he gets on.

Race2Recovery is with Graeme Billington.

Graeme's had a good day training over the wet, muddy & slippery Salisbury plains. We have two W.I.S offroad bikers within our team, perhaps we might compete on 2 wheels and 4 wheels this year? Always an interesting time of year with lots of ideas flying about!

We're busy working hard at our garage this weekend, prepping the cars and trailers for the year ahead. Some of our new WIS (wounded, injured or sick British Military) team mates have joined us for their first day spinning spanners at our accessible workshop. A big welcome to all the new faces and a big thank you to those who put in the graft year after year. Special thanks to our resident Haribo monster, Chris Astles for the photos.

A photo to whet your appetite this evening...we recently conducted a recce of the Atlas mountains and Moroccan desert for future adventures.

Last night saw the #FIAPrizeGiving, where the 2017 Champions of the Motorsport world gathered for the annual gala event. Wonderful to see Billy Monger joining Jean Todt and Felipe Massa on stage and rocking his new prosthetic legs.

We're hugely proud to be able to share with you the completion of our major project for 2017, Race2Recovery's brand new beneficiary focussed workshop.

The team were donated a former barn, complete with open windows and ‘mud’ floor and have spent the last year building and constructing a state of the art garage facility, utilising support in part from an ABF The Soldiers' Charity grant. On Saturday 25th Nov. the team were proud to host ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s Chief of Staf...f, Brigadier Robin Bacon, who opened the garages officially. The unveiling of this bespoke facility marries multi-height access and tools, allowing both disabled and able-bodied forces’ community members to develop skills and achieve civilian recognised qualifications. We're looking forward in 2018 to utilising the garage in earnest... and we have a number of even more exciting world firsts up our sleeve – Race2Recovery: Beyond Injury Achieving the Extraordinary.
