Legado María de Villota
The Festival de la Velocidad de Barcelona wants to join the solidarity initiatives that María de Villota launched before she left us on the 11th October, 2013. We want to assume its commitment to those most in need and join the work that is being carried out from its Legacy with its five Ambassadors: Pedro Martinez De la Rosa, Carlos Sainz, Marc Gene, Antonio Garcia and Andy Soucek.
Consequence of this and on the initiative of his last Ambassador Andy Soucek and Escudería Targa Iberia, organiser of the Festival, this year we have decided that the name of the event becomes: “Festival de la Velocidad de Barcelona – Legado María de Villota” We are going to promote some initiatives that will mark a before and an after in our sport, turning our gaze, as María showed, towards those most in need of it.
Among the many initiatives that are already active, we ask for your help. It will not cost much and your contribution will go entirely to the “Primera Estrella” programme that she created, in favour of children with degenerative mitochondrial neuromuscular diseases, of the Fundación Ana Carolina Diez Mahou You can contribute your bit when buying the ticket with a direct donation from 1€, and in other actions that we will communicate in the near future.
The ticket for the Festival de la Velocidad – Legado María de Villota is, as you know, very economic compared to other kind of shows, and parking is free. Why do not you consider what it would cost you parking to attend another show (for example to go to the cinema) and donate the amount to the Legado María de Villota? Thank you very much in advance for your help.
