Mazda keeps Team Rubicon mobilised for Covid-19 response

Mazda UK has supplied cars to Team Rubicon UK for their work in combating the Covid-19 virus.

The Team Rubicon UK charity repurposes military skills to offer disaster response aid

The veterans charity repurposes military skills and experience to deploy teams of highly skilled volunteers, providing life-saving aid. Staffed mainly by ex-military volunteers, who all have experience in hostile and character-testing environments – it delivers life-saving aid at home or abroad.

The Mazda cars will assist in the supply and training of PPE, running mortuaries and supporting logistics for the operational team. The cars have been supplied through Mission Motorsport, The Forces Motorsport Charity, and prepared by SMH Fleet Solutions.

Ben Lampard, director of operations at Team Rubicon, said: “With the launch of Op RE:ACT, Team Rubicon UK is mobilising the UK’s military veterans who have answered the nation’s call for volunteers. Our veterans have served their country with pride and distinction and they’re ready to step forward to serve again, this time on home soil. Now more than ever their unique skills and experience can help to protect and save UK lives.”
