Investment In Youth

Today’s young people are as important as ever in contributing to the prosperity of the UK and indeed the world over. At Chilfen we are pleased to run an Investment in Youth program, we aim to support young men and women in achieving their goals whatever career path they choose to follow.

Currently we are supporting a young man who is “driving” up the rankings in motorsport. 15 year old Tom Brown who currently drives for DBR Motorsport has been selected to test for the Tollbar racing team. He will be driving the Ginnetta G40 touring car in the Junior Ginnetta Racing Championship with view to becoming a full time team member.

The MSA (Motorsport Academy) have also selected Tom as one of their elite drivers supporting him all the way through to Formula One.

Chilfen are pleased to be involved with Tom’s development and wish him the best for the future.
