Motorsport mental health organisation to mark World Mental Health Week with Snetterton track walk.

To mark Mental Health Awareness Week and its theme of “Movement: Moving more for our mental health”, motorsport, mental health organisation, Driven Minds, will host a track ‘walk and talk’ at Snetterton in partnership with TCR UK and BRSCC. The 4.8km walk is set to take place at 6.30pm on Saturday 18th May, with several TCR UK drivers in attendance.

Driven Minds is a non-profit organisation that promotes awareness of mental health within UK motorsport and the automotive industry. Currently working with the BRSCC, they provide support at circuits for all, including drivers and team staff, photographers, marshals and circuit officials at selected events.

“We’re aiming to raise awareness of and access to mental health support in motorsport. The leading cause of death in men aged under 50 in the UK is suicide. Take a look when you next walk through a motorsport paddock – suddenly, that statistic becomes even more alarming. Getting together to mark Mental Health Awareness Week is a fantastic opportunity to spread the word. Who knows, there might even be conversations on the track walk that help someone feel less alone!”

Katie Ramsay-Gough, Driven Minds co-founder

All event ticket-holders are welcome to join the gathering. There will be the opportunity to purchase Driven Minds stickers, with proceeds funding mental health first aid training for Driven Minds volunteers to increase the support available at tracks.

Now fully established as one of the country’s leading saloon car racing categories, the TCR UK Touring Car Championship races at Snetterton on 18th and 19th May for its second meeting of the year. These evenly-matched cars provide great on-track action, with one TCR race on Saturday and two on Sunday. Tickets for the event can be purchased at
