In December Gemini announced through their annual Christmas party that all the sites will be taking part in the Real Rally to raise money for Autoraise. A cracking idea by Dave was for each site to be given a country taking part in the world cup to which we was unfortunately drawn France, LOL…….
We managed to stumble on a suitably French Peugeot 306 for under £400 which had an MOT on it for 12 months. It had a few dents and previous repairs which turned out to be great practice for our apprentice Brandon!
There were many challenges for Brandon to undertake. He stripped the vehicle down, repaired the dents and primed and painted the vehicle. This gave him a perfect opportunity to see what issues can arise when dealing with old cars that have all the usual problems including rust, reactions and runs!
Both drivers will be dressed as Frenchmen (whatever that looks like?!) with plenty of cheese and wine on board for the end of each day's journey and fully believe that the vehicle will make it to the end and hopefully back on the Friday!
