Doctor-defying Felix speeds round Goodwood Motor Circuit
A young boy who has been defying the doctors whilst raising money had his racer dreams fulfilled on Friday at the world famous Goodwood Motor Circuit.
Felix Barrow, 11, suffered brain damage and other serious injuries after he was hit by a car outside his home last October.
After the accident, Felix’s family and friends set up ‘Fit for Felix’, a crowdfunding page to support the costs of his care.
Noticing his hard fundraising work, Mithril Racing – a driving experience company based at Goodwood – gave Felix the opportunity to be driven round the track three times in a Lamborghini on July 8.
Felix’s mum, Vanessa, said: “Felix was very excited beforehand, and I’m glad his friends were able to come down and watch him – a few of them were there on the day of his accident and they deserve a treat too.”
Chris Taylor, director of Mithril Racing, said: “I am really pleased to have been able to organise this for Felix.
“We do a lot for charity and we love it. Seeing the smiles on their faces – that’s why we do it.”
