C360R Continues Support of CTF with Two-Car World Challenge Effort

on Monday, 02 March 2015. Posted in R4R News Blog

Team Extends Highly Successful Jeffrey Owen Hanson "Art Car" Program

2015 C360R PWC Art Cars

AUSTIN, TX — The Pirelli World Challenge season opens this weekend at one of the continent's premier tracks, the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. The series includes seven different classes, featuring an astonishing variety of cars including everything from wildly winged Lamborghinis to grocery-getting MINI Coopers.

The team extends its highly successful “Art Car” program with the Children’s Tumor Foundation, with both cars featuring a different piece of art by acclaimed painter, and 2015 CTF Ambassador Jeffrey Owen Hanson. The 20-year-old philanthropic artist is visually impaired from an optic nerve tumor related to neurofibromatosis – known simply as NF – that is a common yet under-recognized genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body. NF affects one in every 3,000 people, more than cystic fibrosis, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and Huntington’s disease combined.

10942430 10152811519992795 8085137260320221389 nSince 2011, we have cheered on the teams that support CTF in the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona on television from our home in California. We regularly support Racing4Research events at racetracks within driving distance of home, but 2015 was the first year we were able to juggle work and school schedules to attend Daytona and experience for ourselves what we'd heard about from other NF families and friends who had attended.
