Martin’s partner Cherie would like to thank his team, Pete Morgan, Jonathan Morton, Alistar White and Sheridan Bonner for their help and support in preparing and running the cars this weekend for Dennis.
Cherie also would like to thank everyone who has sent their kind wishes for Dennis and this is why anyone that has tried contacting Dennis has not received a reply.
