On August Bank Holiday Monday - Mon 25th Aug at Buxton Raceway - Mark Allen will be making a world record stunt jump.

 

Mark Allen was one of the youngest British soldiers to become a double amputee, aged 19.

He’s never let his injuries slow him down and has been determined to enjoy all the extreme activities he enjoyed before he was injured.

Mark’s maturity has made him a natural example to other injured troops so it made perfect sense to nominate him as a KartForce Ambassador.

When asked if he wanted to be a passenger in a stunt jump, Mark’s reaction was predicable to those that know him. “If I’m going to do a stunt, I’ll be the one doing the driving.”

And that’s how this project started.

“This stunt is my way of showing the world what can be done if you put your mind to it. It’s also a way to raise funds for KartForce to show my thanks for everything they’ve done for me and other injured troops. All donations go towards getting more injured troops racing, so I hope you can give generously and help me raise loads of

Mark was discharged from the Army earlier this year and decided to take on this Guinness World Record stunt jump to show the world that “You don’t need all your limbs to race… just BRITISH BULLDOG BALLS!”

Mark will be one of the KartForce drivers that’s progressing to team endurance car racing, aiming to be the first team of injured troops to compete in the 24 Heures du Mans.
