Race2Recovery: a story that deserves recognition

Race2Recovery-Team-Dakar-Rally

Race2Recovery, a British Dakar Rally team comprised of British and American soldiers, has become the first team to complete the rally with disabled crew members taking part. Serveral amputees made up a component of this team which successfully crossed the finish line with one of its four Land Rover Wildcat trucks. One was disqualified, one retired, while the third was heavily damaged in a rolling incident. This left the fourth Wildcat, driven by Major Matt O’Hare and Corporal Phillip Gillespie, making it to the end.

A truly amazing accomplishment when you consider how brutal and unforgiving the Dakar Rally can be. A massive congrats to the entire Race2Recovery team!
