Sir Jackie Stewart OBE and Damon Hill OBE raise over £7,000 for their charities

Posted on the 9th February 2021

A huge thank you to everyone who attended such a memorable evening.

Ignition Human Performance and Motorsport Tickets are proud to announce that the virtual event “The Mindset of Champions: An Evening with Sir Jackie Stewart OBE and Damon Hill OBE”, has raised over £7,000 for the drivers’ respective charities: Race Against Dementia and the halow project.

An exclusive audience of 110 attendees joined the two Formula One World Champions live via Ignition’s Virtual Learning Platform to discuss a range of topics, including how sponsorship became a major factor in the sport, why camaraderie between drivers on the grid was so important to racing culture, and why Hill refused Stewart’s offer to race for his team in the 1990s.

Through ticket sales and donations, the event raised a total of £7,392 which will be split between the two charities.

Ignition and Motorsport Tickets are set to continue their partnership with a series of Open Courses starting in the coming months, which will be a fully immersive learning experience to understand how Leadership and Teamwork works with Motorsport. A percentage of the profits from these courses will be donated to Race Against Dementia and the halow project.

I’d like to thank everyone who donated and joined us for The Mindset of Champions. I very much enjoyed chatting with Damon virtually about racing, including racing with his father and knowing him since he was just a pup, and our very important charities. Since I launched Race Against Dementia, it has been driven to raise funds for dementia research, and fuel innovations with an F1 attitude. So, this was a great event to raise both awareness and funds for the cause.

I had a wonderful evening with Sir Jackie during The Mindset of Champions event, raising funds and awareness for the halow project. Having known Sir Jackie since I was young, it was a great opportunity to tell some stories from our eras on track, and share insights we’ve both picked up along the way. I hope it was valuable to those who tuned in virtually, and that they enjoyed Sir Jackie berating me for not signing up for Stewart Grand Prix!
