After the successes of his recent documentary series, Rod Bond: Tax Fraud and HMRC, Rod Bond has had quite a busy year. After embarking on filming for a movie remake based on the television documentary, the Hollywood veteran unfortunately fell ill to coronavirus. Since recovering, the famous British actor has returned with an impassioned verve. Most recently, the British film industry icon has donated £50,000 to support coronavirus testing at two Formula One grands prix scheduled to be held at Silverstone in August. Bosses from the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) have welcomed the move, which has also been lauded by Formula One officials.
