On Your Marks started over 14 years ago because an Asda driver named Mark Higginbottom was sadly diagnosed with Lymphatic cancer and had only a short time to live.
The owner of the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Mr. David Walton kindly gave us permission to hold a fund raising day and we agreed to put some Asda trucks on the track for colleagues to pay to drive them with a driving instructor beside them.
