My story

[p][b]The challenge[/b][/p] [p]Robert Belcher and Stephen Cooper are attempting to drive 10,000 miles from London to Cape Town in less than 10 days to break the current world record, set in February this year, by more than 13 hours.[/p] [p] [/p] [p]January 2013 was the 80th anniversary of the first record run between London and Cape Town. In February this year Philip Young and Paul Brace established a new world record by driving nearly 1,000 miles a day for just over 10 days from Cape Town to London in a Fiat Panda. Setting out from Marble Arch at 05:00hrs on Friday 4th October we can't be sure to beat their time but if we can leave something other than tracks behind that would be great – so please help us on the way by making a donation to [url=http://www.farmafrica.org/]Farm Africa[/url] who are helping African farmers end hunger.[/p] [p] [/p] [p]“We’re full of the spirit of adventure, we’re well prepared and are both very much looking forward to the challenge. This is an ambitious record to aim for, but we have every reason to believe we can achieve it.”  Robert[/p]
