True Heroes Racing
Chris Shroff has worked as a legal secretary with March solicitors Fraser Dawbarns for eight years and being a local lady is a familiar face around the town. Chris, along with her husband Terry and son Adam, have volunteered and worked closely with True Heroes Racing.
True Heroes Racing is the brain child of a serving Royal Navy sailor who has been lucky enough to return from several tours of duty in Afghanistan uninjured. After working with a large number of injured UK Service personnel on motorsport charity events it was decided to try and use competitive motorsport as a way of restoring a sense of direction and focus for our injured UK Service personnel and in 2012 ‘True Heroes Racing‘ was formed.
In December 2014 it was a real honour for True Heroes Racing to be nominated by the general public for the ‘Support to the Armed Forces’ award at the star studded Sun Military awards (Millies), where on the night they narrowly missed out to a deserving Army Children’s Charity. Millies is an annual awards ceremony which honours members of the British armed forces and civilians involved with the forces. The awards were created by The Prince of Wales. The awards are organised and sponsored by The Sun newspaper and the award trophies are designed and hand-made by British Silversmith and porcelain designer Kerry O’Connor.
More recently it has been announced that the team’s first and longest standing injured rider, Murray Hambro, has been nominated, on behalf of the whole True Heroes Racing team, for the ‘Sporting Endeavour’ award at the 2015 Soldiering On Awards to take place in April at a celebrity awards ceremony in London.
True Heroes Racing are in a supporting role to the British Super Bike events that take place all over the country and abroad and travel around the country to all British Super Bike events . Chris and her family can be found volunteering with True Heroes Racing most weekends. Adam is the only able bodied mechanic on the team. Chris is assistant to the hospitality and catering part of the team (generally know as the Galley Slave) and, along with Terry, looks after the boys in general. Chris is very proud of her team family.
