A name that’s synonymous to the endurance racing scene, JOTA Sport is stepping up in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as the racing outfit have been putting their engineering expertise and equipment into good use by creating face masks for UK’s front liners in the National Health Service (NHS).
This came into action after the British LMP2 team principal Sam Hignett approached Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to see how they could be in assistance. This then led to the team helping to create 3D printed masks, all of which will be donated to the trust.
The masks will be sent to hospitals at two central spots in London and the team expects to produce 200 face masks by the end of the week. Each mask takes about 45 minute to print and 20 seconds to assemble.

Our first batch of in-house 3D printed face masks are en route to our fantastic heroes at the NHS. With motorsport on pause we have been putting our expertise & equipment to good use in creating face masks to help those on the front line. Everyone at JOTA is so appreciative of our emergency services during these difficult times. #ThankYouNHS
