Charity kart race set for injured Mingay

A charity karting event will be held next week to help raise money for injured stuntman and racing driver Matt Mingay.

The Aussie was badly hurt last month during a Stadium Super Trucks race at the Belle Isle GP IndyCar race in Detroit. His facial injuries required costly treatment in the US, before he was able to travel back to Australia to continue his recovery.

The Australian motorsport community has already made a number of contributions to Mingay, including a Go Fund Me campaign which has already raised around $70,000. The next step is a charity karting day on the Gold Coast, with the likes of Supercars race winner Tim Slade and V8 Utes star Ryal Harris set to take part.

“I'm so overwhelmed by the massive level of support my fans and motorsport family have shown since my accident, your encouragement and good vibes is what pushes me to get out of hospital and back to 110 per cent,” said Mingay.

“I also want to thank my good mates at Go Karting World for really getting behind me and showing their support. They have such an epic day planned, so if you can, get down there and meet some of your favourite V8 drivers and motorbike riders.”
