Now a regular yearly occurrence, YouTube sim racing content creator and Britcar Endurance Championship race winner Jimmy Broadbent’s ‘The Race For Mental Health’ has been yet another slam dunk.
Held on iRacing, the third annual 23 Hours of Zolder was live-streamed on Jimmy’s YouTube channel and RaceSpotTV with the aim of raising funds for mental health charity Mind. The vehicles in use were the Honda Performance Development ARX 01c, Cadillac CTS-V and Ford Mustang FR500S.
Team entry cost £15 with all proceeds going to Mind and viewers could also donate. At the time of writing, just after the race has ended, the total stands at over £46,000 with donations still possible via JustGiving. Raffle prizes, where donating more than £1 entered you for a chance to win, included Heusinkveld and Fanatec equipment, raceanywhere.co.uk gift cards and a signed Praga R1 brake disc.
The race was won by the #666 Team Butter Toasters entry, ahead of #24 Webb Sovereign Sport and #155 Alpinestars Geodesic Racing.
An incredible figure for an extremely worthy cause – we encourage you to donate if you are in a position to do so.
