Rick Pearson and Mark Fish Motorsport To Take Part In Snetterton Charity Day
Clio V6 ace, Rick Pearson and his Mark Fish Motorsport team will be on hand at next weekend’s Snetterton charity day helping to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
Preparation expert Mark Fish has installed a passenger seat in Pearson’s awesome V6 race car in order to give more than twenty special guests, sponsors and journalists the ride of a lifetime at the Norfolk track.“ This is a day for the fans,” he said.“ In addition to raising money for charity, we’re giving them the chance to get as close to a race car as they’ll ever be able to get without actually taking control of the vehicle. To be in the cockpit with the driver as he completes a fast lap is a unique experience.”
With a 285bhp, 3 litre, V6 engine, the Renaultsport Clio Trophy challenger can top 140mph. Piloted by Pearson and prepared by the 2000 UK Clio Cup team and driver champions, the car has recently been put through its paces at several Grand Prix venues including Magny-Cours, Spa-Francorchamps and Monza.
“ This is the second year in succession that we’ve signed up for the charity day,” Pearson said.“ It’s a fantastic opportunity for the whole team to give something back to everyone who’s supported us in the past twelve months. And of course, helping to raise some much needed cash for the British Heart Foundation is a fantastic way to end the year.”
