British Superbike star Luke Mossey visited the headquarters of the Armed Forces’ motorsport charity to discuss its new two-wheeled venture for recovering service personnel.

Funded in part by Help for Heroes and the Royal British Legion, Mission Motorsport provides respite, rehabilitation, recreational opportunities and training through motorsport to those affected by military operations.

The charity aims to get their beneficiaries back into employment after being medically discharged from the Armed Forces.

Royston’s Mossey, who finished an impressive sixth in his second British Superbike Championship this season, met some beneficiaries during a tour of the charity’s workshops near Wantage, Oxfordshire.

The 24-year-old spoke to some beneficiaries about the injuries they’ve endured and the difference that Mission Motorsport is making to their lives.

Mossey said: “It was humbling to meet people who’ve been brave enough to serve our country.

“I ride at 170mph during races and have had my fair share of painful accidents, but that’s nothing compared to the challenges these people have faced and overcome.
