Bridgestone supports rider in 100,000 mile charity adventure
Bridgestone has agreed to supply Aberdeen’s Bruce Smart with its Battlax Sport Touring T30 tyre as he embarks on a £1 million charity adventure in memory of his mother. His 75,000 mile journey will cross 84 countries in 18 months, a challenge which will be compounded by his decision to do it all on a Suzuki GSX-R1000. Bridgestone will follow the 36 year-old’s quest to raise £1 million for four different charities, supplying him with new tyres when necessary. Smart, who is raising money for The Children’s Trust Tadworth, the Born Free Foundation, the Royal British Legion and St Christopher’s Hospice, dropped by Bridgestone’s head offices in Warwick as he begins his round-the-world mission.
