V8 SuperUtes, Perth SuperSprint: Jimmy Vernon racing for Kids with Cancer

At Round 1 of the 2023 SuperUtes – the Perth SuperSprint, 28 to 30 April – Jimmy Vernon will be racing for kids with cancer, with the photo of 12-year-old Georgia, diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia on his helmet.

Following his win in the 2022 Australian Production Car Championship, A1 class last year, Jimmy Vernon is a newcomer in the V8 SuperUtes who will be driving for kids with cancer throughout the season – looking to raise awareness and funds to support the near 800 children diagnosed with cancer each year.

In 2023, Jimmy has pledged 20% of his corporate sponsorship funding to Kids with Cancer Foundation, which is committed to making today easier for kids with cancer and their families through providing direct financial support to families, Care Packs, Wigs4Kids, plus funding critical hospital salaries and infrastructure, cancer research and more. In 2023, Kids with Cancer Foundation marked its 25-year anniversary, and celebrated providing over $30 million in funding nationwide through its programs.

Jimmy Vernon, known under the SuperUte nickname “The Phantom” is looking forward to racing in Perth with Georgia on his helmet, and for all kids with cancer.
