Riley to support ChemoHero during BXCC campaign

Britpart BXCC driver Oisin Riley will be raising awareness of North Devon charity ChemoHero this season as he debuts his new Lofthouse Fiesta car.

ChemoHero was founded in 2014 and their team of volunteers provide "boxes of kindness" to patients when undergoing their first chemotherapy treatment at North Devon District Hospital. The boxes contain over 40 items and in excess of 1,500 boxes have been provided since the charity started. 

"ChemoHero's volunteers do an amazing job," said Riley. "As well as making a donation I wanted to help raise awareness of the great work they are doing so I decided to promote them via the livery on my race car, hopefully people will see the name and consider offering support."

"The new car has a 6 litre LS2 engine, it's rather different to the 1 litre Polaris I raced previously! We've been doing some testing with fellow BXCC driver Paul Rowlands in Wales and I can't wait to get the season started. Thanks to Paul and Dan Lofthouse for the test."
