Show your competitive team spirit
What is the S1 race?
The S1 tyremen Grand Prix is set to capture the competitive spirit of businesses across Hull and East Yorkshire. The campaign incorporates networking, team building, corporate entertaining and charitable giving in one fun packed event. Raising in excess of £20,000 for Smile and 10 additional local charities, this competitive event delivered by The Smile Foundation and event partner tyremen will feature 10 heats.
Each heat will represent one of the 10 nominated charities, with each heat winner racing on their charity’s behalf in the grand final at the end of the year, to win a share of the total funds raised.
“We were impressed with the concept but even more so with the impact it can have. Hull and East Yorkshire is incredibly important to us and we want to ensure we can play our part in making our communities stronger”
“We are ready to host the Smile heats and look forward to our track helping to raise over £20,000 for charity and having lots of fun along the way!”
