Maxxis and Stapletons have teamed up to provide speedway superstar Lightning McQueen with a new set of rubber boots.
The leading manufacturer and distributor donated a set of ultra-high performance, Victra MAZ1 tyres to Adam Goodwin, a Shropshire-based teacher who has built a replica Lightning McQueen car from the Disney movie, Cars.
Adam originally built the car as a present for his son, who is a big fan of the film, but following completion, it has been turning heads wherever it goes. Adam has since made the decision to use the car to raise funds for Hope House Children’s Hospice, by asking for donations from members of the general public interested in having their photo taken with the car.
Hope House provides specialist nursing care and support to life-limited young people from in and around Shropshire, Cheshire, North and Mid Wales. It offers a range of services including respite and end-of-life care at the hospices and/or within the family home. It also provides support such as counselling, advocacy and the promotion of children, young people’s and carer’s rights.
The support offered by Maxxis and Stapletons is obviously something that Adam greatly appreciates, as he confirms: “I can’t thank Maxxis enough for donating a full set of their Victra MAZ1 tyres, Stapletons for providing the tyres and arranging fitment, and Priorslee Motor Services for fitting them for free. Having competed in motocross events I was already very familiar with Maxxis and their fantastic tyres. So when I originally bought the car and saw that it was already running on Maxxis, the decision to approach them for their support was a no-brainer.”
“The response I’ve received from the public since completing the car has been fantastic and means that I can now offer my continued support to Hope House Children’s Hospice. The charity does such a wonderful and difficult job, so to offer my support by helping to raise much needed funds, is extremely rewarding.”
