HSCC single seater and sports car racer Steve Seaman will mount a unique challenge in early June to drive his 1927 Bentley on a lap of every race circuit in England and Wales.

Seaman is raising money for the Race against Dementia charity in memory of his late father. Across six days, he’ll visit 16 tracks and relevant venues with the Bentley four and a half litre. As well as all 14 active circuits in England and Wales, he will also visit Brooklands and LLandow in South Wales, starting on Friday May 31 and finishing at Oulton Park on Wednesday June 5.

Seaman said: “I wanted to do a charity event for my late father who died two years ago. I knew we couldn’t swim the Channel or row the Atlantic, so we came up with a drive to include every race track in England and Wales.”

The background for the event is to tell the story of three brothers. Norman, the eldest, served on HMS Wishart in World War II, a destroyer based in the Mediterranean which survived the war. Norman died 10 years ago from Parkinson’s Disease.

Brian, Steve’s father, was the middle brother and drove Centurion and Comet Tanks for the 1st Tank regiment based in Hong Kong after the war. Brian died two years ago from Alzheimer’s Disease.

Graham, the youngest, crewed Vulcan Bombers for the RAF as a Radio Operator until Vulcans were retired from service. he now has symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

“Dementia has touched many families,” said Seaman. “If anyone feels they would like to join us for a section of the route, will be most welcome.”
