A BRITISH racing champion has switched his sports car for a Tesco delivery van to help deliver goods during the coronavirus pandemic.
Professional racer Josh Webster, 26, normally speeds around Silverstone but now delivers essentials in Stowmarket, Suffolk.
Announcing his first successful shift on Twitter, the Porsche Carrera Cup winner said: “Day One as a @Tesco Stowmarket Customer Delivery Driver is complete!
“So much fun and so rewarding being able to help people and give a bit back to the community as well as keeping my income rolling in these tough times.
“Grateful for the opportunity!”
Tesco store manager Scott Garrod tweeted his delight at having John onboard: “Not only for his driving skill but for the fantastic work he will do delivering shopping in the community to some of our vulnerable customers.”
Josh races for Team Parker Racing and is a member of the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC).
