Announcing Banner Hoarding at Knockhill - Emotional

Updated: Aug 12, 2021



The Team at Racing Awareness Scotland wanted to surprise our founder.

Alex Milne and therefore his inspiration for starting this team, his much loved and missed wife Sheila Milne. Here’s Alex’s story and pictures of our new hoarding from today.


Alex’s words:


This started as a surprise from the team to commemorate my late wife's viewing spot and, eventually, her final resting place. She would have been secretly flattered and proud, wondered why and said " stupid boy" in a stronger fashion than the original from Captain Mainwairing. It couldn’t be as the gang wanted which was to install and let me see it on track. Firstly, I would likely have crashed at the entry to Duffus. Secondly, they didn't really know if I would approve the exposure and emotion. Lastly they wanted my creative input and opinion. So here is the end result. It mentions Why, How and Who made it possible. The Why being Sheila and then the charities we support. The How being down to the fabulous sponsors supporting the team and the Who being the team members.
