I hope this is in order to post here. Just received from the Road Racing Drivers Club in the US. If you are able to do so, please consider contributing as indicated. Vic - who was already battling an aggressive cancer - had a fall recently, fractured a femur and has little available support. He is battling the situation with his lifelong characteristic tenacity and courage. Just a small contribution could really help make life easier right now for him and for his lady, Anita.
April 19, 2021RRDC MEMBERS:RRDC members Marshall Pruett and Brian Redman are asking for our help.Our longtime member Vic Elford is in need of support "from the legions of friends and fans who’ve marveled at his exceptional talent and grace for more than half a century."With the return of an aggressive form of prostate cancer, and the added complication of a broken leg suffered in a recent fall, the 85-year-old Englishman has been unable to travel and earn a living as a featured guest at automotive and vintage racing events."His friends and fans are joining in to help Vic through this difficult time by way of this fundraising page. Please provide your support, if you're able, by going toHere is the full story on Racer.com from Marshall Pruett:Said Redman, “Vic's many successes and accomplishments are well known, but what stood out for me was his desire to race the new and unproved Porsche 917 at Le Mans in 1969. Why?“Because it was 20 mph faster on the four-mile Mulsanne straight than anything else! Vic and Richard Attwood were leading with only three hours to go when the gearbox casing cracked.“In 1970 with the new long-tail 917, Vic set a new qualifying record at an average of just over 150 mph and the fastest lap in the race at an average of 149.90. So, not just ‘Quick Vic,’ but ‘Brave Vic,’ whose bravery is demonstrated once more while combating the dreaded cancer.”RRDC member David Hobbs added: "Vic Elford, one of the top drivers of his generation, is very ill with cancer. Vic is an all-time great, winning the Monte Carlo Rally and Daytona 24 Hours in a space of two weeks. It would be great if you could help!”Thank you!!The RRDC board
