• TheScuderia.net - Forza Felipe

    When Felipe Massa had his terrible accident in Hungary the members of thescuderia.net swung into action. We wanted our driver to know that we were thinking of him and wished him all the best. The forum pulled together as one and it was decided we would raise as much money as possible and send Felipe a personalised Brazil football shirt and a book of well wishes, the rest of the money would be donated to worthy charities.

    The Brazilian shirt was taken care of by Ste who took care of purchasing the shirt and arranging for the custom message to be printed, this was harder than we first assumed due to most shops not willing to do it. But Ste managed to find a place to do it and the shirt was sent to Felipe. Big thanks to Ste for doing this.

    Julie B took care of doing the book, adding in all the pictures and personal messages from those who donated and laying out the book. The book took a fair bit of time to get finished but it was well worth it in the end as the final product looked stunning, this was also sent to Felipe. Many thanks to Julie for doing this.

    The remaining money was donated to UNICEF (£374.36) a charity that Massa is heavily involved in, and also to SANDS UK (£160.43) a charity that is well supported by Rob and Lucy Smedley. We raised a total of £686.05 once again proving that TSN is the best Ferrari community online!

    The shirt was given to Felipe by Rob Smedley who sent us this picture of Felipe with the shirt, many thanks to all those who took part in the Felipe fund, all those who donated really did show that this community is the best around.

    We received the following email from Felipe's management regarding the book
