Team story

[p][b]The Challenge: [/b][/p][p]Run Against the Sun (whatever it takes!) involves a challenging 430 mile drive through the night, attempting to beat the sun rise across the furthest west to the furthest east point of the UK. It starts at on the 25th June at 21:34 in Land's End, giving our team until 4:32 to beat the sun in Lowestoft the following morning.[/p][p]It might sound easy at first glance, but a 7 hour drive through the night, with no breaks, is a seriously tough challenge to endure. We will need to carefully select a route to avoid road works, holiday travellers with their caravans and any other obstacles that will face us to beat the sun.[/p][p]If this challenge sounds familiar, Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear ran a similar [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuANURnBzWQ]challenge in the Jaguar XJR[/url], narrowly [url=http://topgear.wikia.com/wiki/The_Race_Against_God]beating the sun by 5 minutes. [/url][/p][p][b]The Charity: [/b][/p][p]100% of the funds raised will go to [url=https://www.ssafa.org.uk/]SSAFA[/url], the Armed Forces Charity. The charity is FRSB approved, so you can rest assured that the funds will make a real difference.[/p][p][b]The Cars:[/b][/p][p]We also have chosen a 3.7 litre Nissan 370Z to do the run in, a car not known for fuel economy (19mpg average day-to-day) making a one stop run more difficult. We also have a Vauxhall/Holden Monaro VXR, a 6.0 litre V8 monster which together we'll make it to the finish line in style![/p][p]We big plans for the cars, to make it stand out and support those that have sponsored us for this challenge. [/p][p][b]Sponsors:[/b][/p][p]Thank you to our sponsors that have supported us so far by providing equipment, merchandise and/or donations. If you are able to donate or lend equipment to help us make the journey (Road Angels, decals, vinyl wraps, biscuits etc) please let our team know![/p][p]Spreadex [url=http://www.spreadex.com]www.spreadex.com[/url][/p][p]TarmacSportz [url=http://www.tarmacsportz.co.uk/]www.tarmacsportz.co.uk[/url][/p][p]Pistonheads [url=http://www.pistonheads.com]www.pistonheads.com[/url][/p][p]Dynamic Metals [url=http://www.dynamicmetalsltd.co.uk/]www.dynamicmetalsltd.co.uk[/url][/p][p]Rare Rims [url=http://www.rarerims.co.uk/]www.rarerims.co.uk[/url][/p][p]AMDetails [url=http://www.autoglym.com]www.amdetails.co.uk[/url][/p][p]Autoglym [url=http://www.autoglym.com]www.autoglym.com[/url][/p][p]Dream Automotive [url=https://www.facebook.com/DreamAutomotive]www.facebook.com/DreamAutomotive[/url][/p][p][b]About your donation:[/b][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
