Walker Racing Announces Charity Workshop TourFirestone Indy Lights team, Walker Racing will open the doors of its Indianapolis headquarters on Nov. 11 for a two-hour open house to support The Spinal Cord Injury Hope Fund.
The team's driver, Dan Clarke, and team owner Derrick Walker will host fans from 4- 6 p.m. for a tour of Walker Racing's facilities. The tour is free to the public and the team will be accepting donations to the SCI Hope Fund, who mission is to provide independence and quality of life through financial grant to individuals with spinal cord injuries.
"After meeting with SCI Hope at a recent golfing event, I realized there was an opportunity to show people the inside of a real IndyCar team," said Clarke, who finished seventh in Firestone Indy Lights points for Walker Racing. "Almost every element that goes into creating a winning race team can be found here at Walker Racing. That is something the general public or race fans rarely get to see.
"Initially I wanted to share that experience with just the individuals at SCI Hope but the more I thought about it the more I realized there was a potential to raise money for their charity also."
Visitors will also be able to test their racing skills by lapping Indianapolis Motor Speedway in an iRacing simulator. The fastest speeds will win prizes donated by iRacing. Walker and Clarke will be available for meet-and-greet and photo opportunities throughout the event. The team's race engineer and crew will also be on hand throughout the day to answer any questions that guests may have.
Fans can also enter a raffle, during the event, with the chance to win signed race-worn items and gifts from Dan Clarke, Walker Racing and INDYCAR.
