Weʼre raising £4,000 to get Cruz to the Super One Series Karting Championship

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.


Cruz Speakman is a determined 10 year old boy whose dream is to become a formula 1 driver. Cruz has shown real skill from an early age when he first hit the track. Since 2012 Cruz has trained and entered various competitions showing real talent gaining numerous podium finishes in his category. In 2015 Cruz participated in his first championship, the “Valenciana Championship”. Cruz was the youngest competitor in his category and secured podium finishes and third place in the championship. Last year he was 1st in the Championship, we are proud to say we ride under the British Flag and currently the only British child to be racing in all the competitions. Cruz is fluent in three languages both written and verbal – Spanish, Valenciano and English, which is a great benefit. As Cruz continues to show real talent and determination in karting, consistently showing podium finishes it is our intention to support Cruz to continue to compete and strengthen his already bright career. It’s Cruz’s ambition in 2018 to take his racing to a higher level by entering the Super One Series which is televised on Sky’s Motors TV. A host of famous British drivers, including Formula One stars Hamilton and Button, came through Super One, which is made up of 11 different classes, and Cruz has been told by various teams that he has what it takes to compete at that level. With your support we would also like to compete in  the Spanish Championshipwhich is also televised.

At 10 years old we believe so much has been achieved with the vast amount of pole positions, medals and trophies in just the few years Cruz has been racing and with additional sponsorship we hope to accelerate Cruz’s driving capabilities to constantly achieve pole positions and first place finishes. As Cruz is at the top of the regional championship in Spain, we truly believe with help from you we can achieve this in the UK too. As a family team we are committed, motivated and have experienced mechanics who work tirelessly up to 4 days per week to achieve our potential. In 2017 Cruz achieved more podium finishes than we anticipated and we hope to build on this.

Why We Need funding?

To run a kart is costly and although as a family hobby it is manageable but with the talent and skill shown by Cruz it is a natural progression for him to compete further and develop as a racing driver. The maintenance of the kart, tyres, the engine, training, travel costs and general consumables become a reoccurring cost as we start to compete more aggressively. Sponsorship from a local organisation or interested individual will enable Touchwood Racing to continue to participate in karting and secure a place at large scale kart competitions. We are currently looking for sponsors to help with: tyres, chassis, engines, team costs, travel, consumables, training days, race entry fees, protective wear or a general donation to show your support.

Finally, we would like to thank you again for your time in reading our story and I sincerely hope that you, your company or friends may be able to help me achieve my dreams, whilst also us doing our bit by promoting your company.
