The perfect way for petrolheads to support the rehabilitation of ex-Forces personnel, charity Mission Motorsport and Warwickshire-based automotive destination Caffeine & Machine have joined forces with the unveiling of a unique donation mechanism – a stunning re-worked engine block created by a beneficiary of the charity.
The new donation block becomes a totem for the collaboration, and a focal point for charitable support at the coffee house, licensed bar, restaurant and living art gallery. The partnership will focus on initiatives which do the right thing by wounded, injured and sick ex-service personnel through a mutual love of caffeine and all things automotive.
Standing pride of place in the main bar area at The Houndshill, the piece of automotive art is an ideal reminder of the in-valuable work that the Forces’ Motorsport Charity undertakes, as it aids in the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by their service.
Over the last 12 months, Caffeine & Machine has established itself as a meeting place of choice for anyone who has a fondness for machines, no matter if it’s car, bike or truck: petrol, diesel or even jet powered. Open seven days a week, the autopian destination attracts visitors from across the UK and from Europe, with every cred of vehicle welcome.
The donation block itself is a perfect example of how Mission Motorsport supports.

The starting point for the project was a TVR Speed Six engine block, kindly donated by TVR specialist Powers Performance in Coventry
