BriSCA F1 Trust Fund

Originally known as the Drivers Benevolent Fund (Ben Fund), the Fund was set up following the tragic loss of Brian Wallace at White City in 1976, with the aim of providing financial support to drivers and their dependants in the event of injury or loss of life. The Fund was formally registered as a Charity over the winter of 1984/5, under the full title of 'The British Stock Car Drivers Trust Fund' and is today commonly referred to as simply 'The Trust Fund'.

The annual 'Trust Fund' race has taken place every year since 1977, and has traditionally been open to all Red Top drivers attending the Trust Fund meeting. On rare occasions, the race grid has also been bolstered by ex-red or blue top drivers, to ensure a full field of cars. A traditional feature of Trust Fund meetings is the drivers collection, when drivers mingle with the crowd collecting for the Fund - if you should see any of the drivers on collection duties, please give generously for this very worthy and essential cause.

Trust Fund meetings apart, direct donations, however large or small, would be welcomed and much appreciated at any time - if you would like to donate directly to the Trust Fund, please contact the BSCDA Secretary (admin@bscda.co.uk) for further information.
