In July 2017, Operation Motorsport launched to become the North American providers of adaptive motorsport, seeking wherever possible to merge the activities of the disabled and those in need with able bodied servicemen and women.

November 2018, Operation Motorsport will join forces with TWOth Autosport and Mission Motorsport in a collaborative effort to field a two car, multi-national entry (Canada / USA / UK) in the 2018
Race of Remembrance
at Circuit Anglesey, Wales, UK. There, a number of disabled veterans and serving soldier beneficiaries, as part of "Team Canada" and "Team USA", will compete as crew, drivers, and support staff throughout the 12 hour race.
