- United Autosports select the halow project as charity of choice
- Charity presence during the 2019/2020 FIA World Endurance Championship
- halow Deux Chevaux Challenge rally to Le Mans to take place on 25-27 October
United Autosports are happy to confirm that they have teamed up with the halow project, supporting them as they take on the halow Deux Chevaux Challenge 2019.
The challenge will see a group of 15 Citroen 2CVs travel from Hampshire on the 25th October to Portsmouth, where they will get the ferry across to St Malo in France and stay overnight in the famous Hotel de France before heading to the legendary Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans on Sunday 27th October. They will then head back to the UK via Caen later that day. All proceeds earned from the rally will go towards the halow project.
United Autosports will also be supporting halow throughout their maiden FIA World Endurance Championship, carrying their logo on the #22 Oreca 07, driven by Phil Hanson, Filipe Albuquerque and Paul Di Resta. The team will be travelling to Fuji, Japan next week for round two of the championship, where Oliver Jarvis will stand in for Paul Di Resta who cannot make the Fuji round.
The halow project is a growing community-based charity, based in Guildford, Surrey. The charity supports young people aged 16+ with a learning disability on their journey into and through adult life. The young people the charity works with want the opportunity to build relationships, become part of the community, find meaningful employment and have a home of their own. The halow project aims to ensure that every person with a learning disability has the same life choices and chances as any other person.
Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“We will do our very best to help create awareness for the halow project as we race around the globe in our maiden FIA WEC season. This really is a great cause which we became aware of through friends of our team in Richard Meins (trustee) and Damon Hill OBE (Patron). The whole halow team are passionate about their work in providing young people with every opportunity in life. The halow Deux Chevaux Challenge Le Mans rally sounds like a really fun opportunity and I am sure it will raise not only awareness for a great cause but additional and hugely important funding the halow project requires”.
Richard Meins, Founder and Trustee, the halow project:
“We are delighted that our friends at United Autosports have chosen to support the halow project this year. We welcome their sponsorship of our inaugural halow Deux Chevaux Challenge. Also, the partnership opportunity that enables us to promote the charities work around the globe through featuring on the fantastic Oreca LMP2 in United’s maiden FIA World Endurance Championship year. We are grateful to be working with them to continue to raise awareness of the fantastic job halow does and know that everyone benefits from being involved with these wonderful young people.”
