Two professionals from the catering equipment industry are taking part in this year’s Crumball Rally Grand Prix 2012 to raise money for charity.
Dave Welbourn, managing director of Nottingham-based HGW Catering Engineers, and Terry Harrage of Oven Proud (Berks), are aiming to raise as much money as possible for Cerebral Palsy Sport, which provides sporting opportunities to individuals with Cerebral Palsy.
The pair will leave Nottingham on 9th May, pick up a co-driver in Bracknell and then head to Boulogne via Calais for registration.
They will then begin the three-day race to Nice, taking in Colmar, Lake Como and the Alps en route.
The rally is themed on John Frankenheimers seminal movie about the 1967 GP season and participants must complete the course in a ‘banger’ costing less than £200 with no technical support.
“Rather than scrapping the car in France we intend to continue our personal challenge to raise more sponsorship for this great cause by driving from Nice to Calais, Bracknell and then Nottingham, hopefully returning on Monday 14th May,” explained Welbourn. “We aim to raise as much as possible in this economic climate for CP Sport.”
CP Sport was a founder member of the British Paralympic Association but receives no government or lottery funding and relies entirely on donations.
