"Rapid Response" Film Premiere
By Philippe DeLespinay
July, 2019

I first met Dr. Stephen Olvey in the year 2000, when he was CART’s chief medical officer, and visited the mobile hospital that he had been advocating for years. To say that I was impressed is putting it mildly.

 

By 2012, Dr. Olvey was now a guest speaker at the “Racing Goes Safer” safety seminars organized by Yves Morizot, the President and owner of Stand 21 Racewear. As a Foundation member, and now giving mini seminars at various venues across the country, I absorbed and retained every bit of his analysis and recommendations that I added to my personal knowledge about racing gear learned through many years as a distributor of the Stand 21 Racewear in the United States.

Military Vets and Racing
Don Taylor, Director, Racing Goes Safer Foundation
August 1, 2019

At this year’s Racing Goes Safer Safety Seminar at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach in April, we heard from wounded US Army Veteran Jon Winker and Vet Motorsports President Peter Cline. At the time, Jon told us how he was developing a race team for which other injured veterans could drive, and his development of hand controls to accommodate those with leg amputations.

 

We were pleased to see Jon’s formal announcement of “Resilience Racing” and the big plans they have, to offer wounded vets a chance to compete on a level playing field, and help change their lives. Congratulations!


Read here what they are doing to help fellow wounded military vets:
