Future Terrain is a motorsport charity for wounded and injured ex-servicemen and women.

It helps rehabilitate and facilitate ex-servicemen and women to move on in their lives through training within motorsport. This creates many opportunities for wounded and injured people, allowing them to discover a new side of their lives.

Winchester-based Future Terrain was founded in 2016 by Grant White, a lower-leg amputee and Royal Marine. Today it focuses on taking beneficiaries and volunteers to test their on and off-driving skills as a team, whether that's trips to Devon or the Pyrenees or Morocco. 

Its funding comes from larger charities, for example, in September a Pyrenees team was funded by Blesma, a limbless veterans' charity, and this enabled places to be filled in the expedition.

Dan Hooton is the chairman of trustees for the charity. Alongside four others, he makes sure the charity is run effectively along guidelines given by the Charity Commission.

He said: "It gives people a chance to join and become part of something bigger, that helps them recover from mental and physical injuries and gives them a sense of belonging."

Awareness is spread primarily through social media, the charity has a Facebook site alongside a website. One of its biggest events is a showcase at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
