A 2007 Vauxhall Agila was the chosen mode of transport. One of the few rules from the rally organisers was that your vehicle must be less than £1,000. You may be wondering why the car is chequered, this was part of the fundraising campaign as the squares were sold as sponsorship. People bought a square which allowed supporters to write a personalised message in the squares – the boys managed to fill all the squares by the time they reached the finish line.
On the 15th of July 2016 the lads waved goodbye. All the participants that entered the rally (310 entries) began with a lap of Goodwood Racing Circuit, Chichester. So, the Agila headed to dover to get the adventure underway.
20 Countries in 7 Weeks
From there the trio would go on to travel across 2 continents, 20 countries whilst totalling approximately 10,000 miles. Seven weeks later on the 28th of July they rolled across the finish line in Ulaanbaatar, ecstatic to have finished in one piece, job done!
The final figure for the money raised was an amazing £4,464.38 which went to Macmillan Cancer Support. Also, John, Max and Paul’s just giving page (online fundraising) was ranked in the top 1% of fundraisers in the whole of 2016.
