Animals Asia - zipping ahead

 

The husband of our Board member, Anneleise, is an enthusiastic car racer in his spare time. Boyd and Anneleise live in Shanghai together with their little boy, Felix, where Boyd has recently been racing in a car that flies the Animals Asia flag.

Please read the update below from a fellow racer, who was not only impressed by the skill of Boyd's racing, but also by the charity he proudly represented on the day.

Thank you Boyd for bringing the plight of the animals of Asia to the attention of thousands of potential new supporters to the cause.

"During the second week of August the second 2012 Tianma Lunjia race festival took place at Tianma Lunjia race track close to Shanghai, China. A race festival comprising of official bike and car races in several classes of competition for talented amateurs.

In the 1.3liter engine car competition, the ASR cup was a separate class. The ASR cup exists of Geely Panda’s that are equally tuned, making it always a close and sensational race. One of the cars bears the name, colors and logo’s of the Animals Asia Foundation – a real eye catcher for the public as it is not so common to have logos from charitable foundations on sports cars.

Boyd Mulder, a rookie race enthusiast and employee at Philips Electronics, decided that his car colors and livery should be something he believes in, bringing a message to the China audience, rather than representing an actual sponsor or his own company.

Finishing a good second in his class and with a podium stage in his first official race, the exposure had several people and co-drivers asking Boyd for the meaning of Animals Asia. Besides loving the colors and livery, people really were impressed by such a good cause and admired the work being done by AAF in China.

We hope to see many more podium places for Boyd with increasing exposure of the AAF branding and such a good cause in the near future!"
