Welcome to the Grand Prix Trust

Sir Frank Williams

The Grand Prix Trust was very saddened to hear of the passing of Sir Frank Williams over the weekend.

On behalf of the Trustees and members of the Grand Prix Trust we would like to pay our respects and thank Sir Frank for all he has done for the sport, as well as his support for the Grand Prix Trust – kindly hosting quite a few Reunion Lunches at the Williams Team in Grove, as well as other Events.

Our thoughts are with the Williams’ family at this sad time, as well as the Trust members who worked, and still work, at Williams F1 team.

RIP Sir Frank Williams - a true legend.

For over three decades the Grand Prix Trust has provided help and advice to Formula One’s trackside and factory-based team personnel, along with everybody directly involved in our great global sport, to help put their lives back on track when things go wrong. In recent years we have broadened this support to the wider F1 community, extending to all employees (including their immediate families) who work or have worked for companies in the F1 supply chain for two or more years.

Our services provide effective and essential support which can take the form of financial assistance or specialist medical advice, ‘signposting’ to established relevant expertise and facilities, and where appropriate advice relating to rights and benefits. Every case is dealt with compassionately and in total confidence.

In addition, we constantly strive to create a like-minded community through social media, online content, regional meetings, and a biannual Reunion Lunch.

The Trust has helped members from the golden ages of Moss, Stewart and Clark all the way through to those left distressed by more recent changes in F1. Our aim is to be there to help and advise those joining the sport tomorrow, as well as those who played their role in a glorious past.

There is no membership fee to join the Trust should you be eligible.

If you’re an existing member, please do encourage your friends and colleagues to join – we really appreciate your support.
