With an ambitious target set (smashing last year’s record-breaking total of £6,250), a Porsche 928 that’s currently on a low loader en route for emergency repairs, and just over 20 days to go until the infamous Porsche Budgeteers, this year Steve's co-driver will be his Father Dave Thompson replacing Justin Bown (Last years fame has sadly resulted in Justin Bown struggling with the reality of fame and is now in re-hab!) they will line-up next to 54 other vehicles… it must be time for another REAL Rally update from Industry Insights (II).
REAL Rally update - 14 days until the start..... A roller coaster of a day ??/??/??/??/????????....
1) Call from the Garage @c11.30am, “great news Tomo, we’ve got it going!! We will sort the ‘bits & bobs out’ you mentioned (I have a rare gift for understatement??) and get it MOT’d this pm”
2) Call from Garage @c12.45pm, “real bad news, the piece of sh1£ is **** oil from the gearbox and I ain’t touching that mate, got to go to a specialist gearbox place, please don’t convince me otherwise!”
3) I respond “what a b@star£, it’s done that before, just put more oil in it and get an mot on it please mate?? Think of the kids!”
4) Call from Garage @c5pm “it’s passed its mot, oil has stopped and if need be, we could stuff some sawdust in it, lol, now go and raise some money for charity ffs!”
Bottom line is, we are all systems go!!! ????????????????????? ????#autoraise #charity #doitforthekids #cheerupPorsche
6 days to go until the REAL Rally for Autoraise...
... and we finally have the 928 back on the road! Looks can be deceptive, the rear tailgate has an innovative new catch fitted (duck tape) and its now en route with co-driver (Dadio Dave Tomo) to Fix Auto Stoke to be covered in our kind corporate sponsors logo’s. Such a great cause and we would very much appreciate any sponsorship/donations please.
