The British Forces Foundation launched its Lap of Honour project
in June 2008. Fronted by BFF Trustee Katherine Jenkins, the project
marks the charity’s 10th anniversary year.
The new vehicle has been engaged in a year-long adventure around the
country getting 50 British icons to autograph one car, and 100 companies
to lend their support.
The 50 icons represent the British elite in all spheres and the list
includes Sir Michael Caine, Sir Jackie Stewart, Rod Stewart, Lewis Hamilton,
Kate Moss, Joe Calzaghe, Sir Elton John, David Beckham, Baroness Thatcher,
Eric Clapton, Joanna Lumley and Gordon Brown outside Number 10 Downing
Street. Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James
May also signed up during filming at the programme's test track in Surrey.
BFF Director, Mark Cann, said: “The Lap of Honour is more than
just a fundraising event for the Charity or a focal point to mark 10
years serving the Armed Forces. It is a celebration of the British link
between companies, eminent icons and serving personnel. The very act
of demonstrating support will send a clear message of solidarity to
those on the frontline, which will in itself be a significant boost
to their morale.”
Brands Hatch has invited The British Forces Foundation to exhibit the
Lap of Honour vehicle at the British round of the A1GP World Cup of
Motorsport. The display follows on from installations at Mini Park Lane,
The Royal Automobile’s atrium in Pall Mall and The National Motor
Lap of Honour will be concluded when the car, along
with two fully signed travelling albums, will be sold in two lots by
Bonhams at their world-famous Festival of Speed auction on 3rd July
