What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Rogerio is a 14 year old Racing Car driver with Asperger's Syndrome.

Rogerio is actively seeking funding to take part in the 2018 BTRDA Rallycross (British trial and Rally Drivers Association) season.

70% of autistic adults say that lack of support in life has added to their isolation. One in three have experienced a development of severe mental health difficulties due to lack of support for their condition. Only 16% of autistic adults ever reach full time employment in the UK. Rogerio is fully aware of these statistics and has always maintained that he wants to show people with his condition that it is possible to achieve in life with a combination of hard work and support from the right people.

Funding doesn’t just get Rogerio racing. There is far more involved. Rogerio has a team of mechanics and statistic advisers around him who also train and develop his knowledge in mechanics and engineering which will be of great value to him in adulthood. Funding would be an investment in helping Rogerio to maintain his training, contribution in motorsport and positively map out his future.

Without funding, Rogerio's journey cannot continue.

Thankyou for reading.
