Team story

<p><strong>This may sound like a crazy idea but it is for Charity.&nbsp; Andy Cook and Mark Bland will be taking part in the Club Triumph Round </strong><strong>Britain Reliability run in October 2010 using Andy's 1971&nbsp;Triumph Gt6. This charity fund raising event which has been held bi-annually since 1966 starts and ends in London on a trip around the British mainland on a route via John O'Groats and Lands End. In order to qualify for a successful completion the entrants need to visit 18 pre arranged check points within 48 hours, a distance of around 2,000 miles. Sponsorship for this event is donated to a different chosen charity each year All entrants fund the expenses for the journey and entry fee out of their own pockets ensuring that all sponsorship funds are donated to the charity. This year over 100 Classic Triumph cars will attempt the journey and will be raising money for the charity Mind, the combined sponsorship target is to raise at least &pound;50,000 so if you are willing to sponsor Andy or Mark it would be really appreciated. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>This is the 3rd time Andy has entered this event in his Triumph GT6, for an article on his successful achievement the first time around in 2006 click</strong><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong><a href="http://homepage.ntlworld.com/cookiehome/RBRR.htm">here.</a></strong><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong>Mark has also completed the event 4 times before.</strong></p> <p><strong>For further details of this event from the Club Triumph Website please click</strong><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong><a href="http://club.triumph.org.uk/cgi-bin/comps/mxcontent.cgi?pid=3">here.</a></strong></p> <p><strong>For details of Mind, the Charity we are supporting visit:-&nbsp;<a href="http://www.mind.org.uk/">http://www.mind.org.uk/</a></strong></p> <p><strong>Note for anyone who may have concerns that this event is not very green with 100 cars polluting the atmosphere with carbon dioxide please note that&nbsp; this year the organisers are&nbsp; attempting to make the event</strong><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong>Carbon Neutral. It has been calculated that each car will produce carbon that costs &pound;10.00 to neutralise and to fund this &pound;10.00 will be donated to an organisation called &lsquo;Climate Care&rsquo; who will use this money wisely for a variety of environmental measures. Note that this donation will be taken from the entry fee and Club Triumph and will not impact the sponsorship funds.</strong></p>
