Barcelona? Barking more like....

As some of you may know, during the Summer of 2010 a couple of the Whickham Motor Club lads and their mates headed off into Europe on a banger rally. The brief idea was to start in a car worth less than £250 and end up in Barcelona. This is Pete Gibson's £170 volvo, which he finally finished just before the event.

The event was nothing to do with speed (which was probably a good job) but there were various challenges along the way which get you points. All they really were aiming for was to reach the party at the end of the day.

Also here is our team website http://bit.ly/9n5wqY (scroll to bottom of main page - team no 373) which has a few pics of how the car began life and how we did it up. Team name is 'Save Our Squirrels' as there was a sticker in the back with that phrase when we bought it - unimaginative? Probably.
If you really want, messages can be left on there for the team.


Volvo go go!


Amongst the competition is 'Team Dodds', a local team with Chris Dodds and three of my other mates. They hadn't seen our car before Sunday, and we hadn't seen theirs, so it was always going to be interesting!


Keep an eye out for us, and we'll do our best to keep you all up to date with our progress. If nothing else, we'll definitely tell you all about the finishing party!
