The Toyo Tires F1600 Championship motorsport family stood wheel to wheel and shoulder to shoulder to send a shout out to Canadian IndyCar driver Robert Wickens. On September 16th, at the final round of the series, the drivers, teams and their crew headed out to turn 5C at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park with the Better, Stronger, Faster #GetWellWickens decals on their race cars and in hand. Under the sign installed by CTMP they raised their arms to cheer on Robbie and let him know everyone here in Canada is pulling for him. Great to see his video post from hospital talking about getting well and returning to racing. GetWellWickens!!!!!
Here is how you can support Robert and his family. It isn’t just for the karting community – anyone can get invovled. Two companies have come together (The Decal Zone and Toronto Motorsports) to help racers show their support for Robert and his family during his recovery. Below is the message from the two companies explaining how you can help out and support.
The entire racing community is thinking about Robert Wickens after his crash at Pocono.
With so many of you reaching out wanting to do something in support of Robert, we have worked together with the Wickens family, TOMotorsports.com and Canadian Mini Indy to acquire a limited number of the Better, Stronger, Faster #GetWellWickens decals for distribution to the karting community to express their support.
There is no charge for these, however, we, in turn, ask you to consider a contribution to spinal cord research on behalf of Robert at Sam Schmidt’s CONQUER PARALYSIS NOW charity at this link http://conquerparalysisnow.org/Home.aspx.
You can contact either Mary Vincec at The Decal Zone – 866.325.0663 or Danielle Duffy at Canadian Mini Indy – 905.679.2122 ext.2 to pick up these decals to distribute amongst your local kart clubs and fellow racers.
We thank you for your support of Robert, Trevor, Lise and Tim Wickens!
Supporters can also purchase a Robert Wickens ‘Better, Faster, Stronger’ t-shirt from Toronto Motorsports, with all proceeds going towards the Conquer Paralysis Now charity. Click here to view the product.
