Fundraising Sunday 11th April 2021, 5:10pm
Ride and skid it are holding a fundraiser raffle in support of two friends Ricky Ashworth and Oliver Brindley who both sustained life changing injuries due to accidents in the 2 sports that we love the most - speedway & flattrack.
To coincide with the raffle we will join in the Sir Tom 100 challenge that is being held nationwide between 30th April - 3rd May.
Aidan will attempt to complete 100 continuous donuts on a speedway bike whilst James Woodroffe will attempt 100 donuts on a flattrack bike on Saturday 8th May.
For a donation of £10.00 you will be entered into a raffle to win a speedway or flat-track experience of your choice. You can enter as many times as you like!
All proceeds raised from the raffle will be split with half going to support Oliver's ongoing rehabilitation and the other half will go to Ricky's chosen charity - Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund
We hope to raise as much as possible and will run the raffle until: Sunday 9th May
Payment can be made via PayPal to: Contact@rideandskidit.com

Whilst chasing his dream to be a professional flat track racer competing at the highest level in the USA, Unfortunately Oliver was caught up in a nasty crash at the 2019 season finale at Meadowlands in New Jersey on Saturday 28 September 2019.
Oliver was left with some serious head injuries and has been facing a long road to full recovery.
Oliver is making amazing progress in his rehabilitation and any support towards this is greatly appreciated.
