The car was designed and fabricated by one of the city charity’s volunteers and materials and time were donated by local businesses to help make this project a reality.

A spokesperson said: “The trustees of Lichfield Re:Cycle would like to thank local businesses Tuke & Bell, Millennium Bearings, Midtherm Laser, Yates Engineering, Run & Ride and Secura Labels.

“Plans are already being made to enter the car into more races in 2020.”

Lichfield Re:Cycle restore bikes and loan them for free to people who need them. They also organise events, rides and confidence building training.
