Former F3 ace Bev Bond is planning to race in Historic Formula Ford next season – at the age of 75.
The move forms part of his campaign to promote cancer awareness in men. Regarded as a rising star during the late 1960s, Bond made a comeback in 2010 after a 30-year break and has raced sporadically during treatment for both leukaemia and cancer.
Bond believes many men fail to take their health seriously enough. “It is such a positive story that this old guy with cancer is still going racing,” he said. “It’s fulfilling an old man’s passion and raising awareness at the same time.”
