Over £1200 was raised to help find a cure for Parkinson’s and other degenerative diseases by Davis Langdon and its clients at a track day at the famous Castle Combe racing circuit in Wiltshire. For the past four years, Davis Langdon has supported the motor-sports initiative ‘Racing for a cure’ that raises money for the Cure Parkinson’s Disease Trust. The day was attended by the founder of the trust, Round Britain walker Tom Isaacs, who suffers from the disease. Around 50 guests tried their hand at Formula Ford single seaters, Lotus Elises, Peugeot 206 rally cars and the challenging reverse-steer 2CV. The day’s top drivers had the chance to drive a Lamborghini.
