Mongol Rally update. Romania

The girls have made it to Romania in the little Bedford rascal. So far they’ve had little more than a blown fuse to slow them down. The quality of the roads leaves something to be desired but the landscape more than makes up for it. To follow Rodeney and His Rascal’s click here for Instagram or here for Facebook. They are raising money for the charities Cool Earth Action and Headway – The Brain Injury Association. To make a donation click here. To track their progress on a map via GPS click here.

Goodwood Revival preparation – Volvo PV544

We got a head start on preparation for this years Goodwood Revival. We are honoured to have received an invitation to compete in the St Mary’s Trophy race with our 1958 Volvo PV544. The car has competed at Goodwood twice before but not since 2010. A fresh engine went it over the winter and with some further tweaking we think we can get this car up the front. Charles Rainford will be at the helm along with our seasoned professional and regular Goodwood partner, the legendary John Cleland.

Initial testing at Brands Hatch very positive. We will continue working over the next 8 weeks to get the most out of this old Volvo.

Bedford Rascal. Rally to Mongolia

Over the past couple of months we’ve been helping out with an old Bedford Rascal camper van which is due to be driven 10,000 miles across Europe and Russia to raise money for Mind the mental health charity. Rhiannon and Esther are taking part in the Mongol Rally along with another 50 teams. The rules state that the vehicle cannot be over 1000cc and that the girls must raise at least £1000 for charity. We’ve done a lot of work in preparation with servicing to the engine and brakes. They are due to set off on July 21st.
