Completing the Wacky Rally 2022

by Ben Grave - 13/07/2022

Our intrepid explorers arrived back in the UK from their 1,749-mile journey down to Barcelona, raising money for Cruse Bereavement Support.

Simon, Lyndon, Dave (owner of the BMW specialists Eden Motors of Yeovil) and long standing friend of the business Colin took part in Wacky Rally 2022 – Europe’s favourite banger rally. This year’s rally was entitled ‘Barmy to Barcelona’ and was a breath-taking journey through the Swiss Alps, the rolling hills of Italy, the French Riviera, and finishing at the Spanish Catalan capital.

The challenge was to buy or obtain a roadworthy vehicle for under £300 and ‘personalise’ in a variety of glorious and imaginative ways. Past designs have included the bat-mobile, various animals, pirate ships and tanks… This year Mark One’s design turned a BMW 5 Series Tourer into a Safari Jeep.

Although great fun, it is a real challenge… our team have spent many hours personalising the vehicle in the build up to the event weekend… then they have taken the long 1,749-mile drive over a long weekend. They faced many obstacles over the weekend but all came back in one piece and smiling… although completely exhausted!

We are so proud of their achievements… well done Team Mark One! You can still sponsor the team on our Just Giving Page
