One of sports most powerful qualities is its ability to inspire and that attribute is at the heart of a motorsport initiative which aims to help injured troops rebuild their lives and confidence. Air Max Baratas España . Team BRIT provides the platform for service personnel who have suffered from life-changing injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder to become heroes in a new environment - endurance racing.Team principal Dave Player, who served in the Royal Engineers for five years, tells Sky Sports: Its not a cure or anything like that, but its for guys who are thrill seekers - which most soldiers are - and allows them to push themselves to the limit. Living life on the edge. When you are fired upon, you dont run away, you run towards the bullets. Its a similar thing with racing - youve got to find that edge. This is what has given these guys a new lease of life. They have rediscovered their drive, their motivation, and something theyre really good at. TEAM BRIT at the Silverstone 24 Hours: (From left to right) Julian Thomas, founder of RaceLogic, David Pittard, racing driver and Team BRIT driver coach, M Born out of the KartForce charity which was created in 2010 to introduce injured service personnel to endurance kart racing, Team BRIT doesnt only provide the platform for discovering new skills in car racing, but also allows participants to gain skills which are transferable to the wider working world. The Team BRIT car leaving the pits in the Silverstone 24hr Its a normal limited company, like a normal racing team, said Player. The drivers have to work for their seat like any other racing driver. They dont race for free, they have to work.The whole idea is to teach the drivers, injured troops, all about the sponsorship and what companies expect from sponsorship. Its not were doing the London Marathon, will you sponsor me? It is corporate sponsorship and advertising. Its trying to work out what we can bring to each different company. We hold workshops and so the lads have to go out and contact companies and so far weve had a really good success rate. Whens the Hungarian GP on Sky?

Team BRITs VW Golf rose as high as second in class before a gearbox problem struck, taking two hours to fix. Nonetheless, a 10th-place finish still represented a commendable maiden result in the gruelling 24-hour race arena.Ex-soldiers Mark and Martyn have now gone out on their own to forge a path in motorsport.When we first met Martyn, hed been home-bound for seven months, said Player of the former Household Cavalry solider, who suffered severe burns when his vehicle was ambushed while on duty in Afghanistan in August 2006.He was so down and depressed, but as soon as he came to one race that was it - he attended every single one. He didnt want to be interviewed or photographed because of his burns, but now he gives interviews on TV, makes presentations at corporate events and gives talks at schools. Hes a massive inspiration.Mark was injured when he was 19, he didnt even have a driving licence. He only got his driving licence after he started karting with us and now, with no legs, last year he was the Brit Car driver of the year. Now hes got enough confidence to go off and make it in the world of motorsport.

We all went and had lunch with them at their studios in London and the strange thing was, rather than the Coldplay fans asking them questions, it was the other way round! They were just enthralled and asking our guys all sorts of questions, we were like kids in a school.They know that Mark and Martyn have now moved on and they are really thrilled that they are part of something thats doing so much good for the lads.Team BRIT are moving ahead with three rookies - Mike Lewis, Warren McKinlay and Joe Byrne - as they work towards the eventual target of competing in the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours.We know its a really mammoth goal, but these lads need a goal, said Player. The new Team BRIT drivers: Mike Lewis, Joe Byrne and Warren McKinlay So when we start racing, we say what do you want to do? We need to have a path, something to aim for. Now we know that were starting team endurance racing with these three rookies and we know next year were going to do something else on the path for what theyre aiming for.After battling back from unimaginable challenges already on the front line, the inherent motivation and tenacity of the injured troops can certainly never be underestimated, whatever the arena.Find out more about Team BRIT and their latest racing activities here Also See: WATCH: The latest F1 videos When is the Hungarian GP on Sky?

Billy Hamilton finished off Cincinnatis biggest comeback of the season for a doubleheader sweep.PARIS - With low scores at a premium on Saturday, Kevin Stadler fired a third-round, 1-over 72 and he extended his lead to four shots heading into the final day at the Alstom Open de France. Stadler, who sits atop the leaderboard at 9-under-par 204, entered the day up by three shots, but the rest of the field could not shoot low enough to catch the American. Stadler is seeking his second win on the European Tour. The 34-year-old held a 3-shot lead over Frenchman Victor Riu after the second round, but Riu carded a 2-over 73 and dropped into a tie for second place at 5-under 208. He is tied with Thongchai Jaidee, who shot a 69 at Le Golf National. U.S. Open champion Martin Kaymer is alone in fourth place at 3-under 210 after shooting a 70 on Saturday. Matthew Baldwin (70) and Bernd Wiesberger (71) are both right behind Kaymer at 2-under. Defending Alstom Open de France champion Graeme McDowell is eight shots off the pace at 1-under and he is tied for seventh with Robert Karlsson (70), Damien McGrane (72), Michael Hoey (73) and Mark Foster (73). Saturdays lowest round was a 3-under 68 turned in by Julien Quesne, who is at even-par for the week. Stadlers lead was not always so comfortable on Saturday. In fact, Riu started his round off strong and was able to pull even with the leader at one point. Up by three shots to begin the day, Stadler parred his first two holes before dropping a shot with a bogey at No. 3. Riu made birdies at both five and nine, while Stadler rounded out his front nine with six straight pars. The duo, who were paired together, shared the lead att 9-under heading to No. Zapatillas Nike Spain. 10. Then the wheels started to come off for Riu, starting with a bogey on the par-4 10th hole. Stadler countered Rius bogey with a birdie to move two shots ahead. Riu picked himself up briefly with a birdie at 11, but back-to-back bogeys at 12 and 13 put him three shots back. Riu made birdie at 14 before making three straight bogeys from 15. He made par at 18 to finish his round. Stadler, on the other hand, cruised to six straight pars before making his second bogey of the round at No. 17, dropping his lead to four. He too parred the 18th and finished with a 72. "I got about what I deserved out of my game today," Stadler said. "I didnt play that great, made a whole lot of pars and did not have nearly as many looks as I had the last couple days, but you cant expect to play that well for four days in a row." Stadler understood how tough the course was playing, so he was pleased with his round. "I knew I really didnt have to do anything crazy today," he said "A couple less would have been nice, but overall Im happy the way it went." Jaidee had one of the better rounds on the day, making four birdies at seven, eight, 13 and 16. He also made bogey at the third and 18th holes. NOTES: Just three players (Quesne, Jaidee and Wade Ormsby) were able to break 70 on Saturday ... Stadler is looking to become the first American to win the Open de France since Barry Jaekel in 1972 ... With no bogey-free rounds on Saturday, there have been just two all week (Stadler in round one, Victor Dubuisson in round two). ' ' '
