The event will support Walking with the Wounded, a charity that has been supported by LDC since its formation, and is expected to see 15,000 people flock to the Royal Hospital Chelsea for a motorsport and automotive extravaganza. Coming just weeks after the end of the London Olympics, Chelsea AutoLegends’ themes this year include Stars’ Cars, 70s Cool, Le Mans and Formula 1 celebration tributes, as well as a Castrol Women in Motorsport arena, Techno Park and Restoration Corner.
Rob Pendleton, marketing director for LDC, noted: “LDC and Marussia F1 Team, this year’s Chelsea AutoLegend’s Formula 1 partner, are proud to support Walking with the Wounded. This charity does a great job in raising not only funds but also the profile of wounded servicemen and women that require re-training and re-education to help them after they have left the Armed Forces.”Chelsea AutoLegends’ Max Wakefield enthused: “We’re delighted to have LDC partnering with us at this year’s event. Not only does the company have a close association with Marussia F1 Team but it also supports Walking with the Wounded, a charity close to our hearts. We look forward to welcoming LDC to The Royal Hospital Chelsea.”
