    I thought it was Elves and Pith helmets ?
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    Well Rai, if you're at Rasta's then I don't mind giving you both (and anyone else there!) a lift if money's a bit tight.

    Hmmm, still very tempted by this. Money might be too much of an issue for me this month (and forever from now on) though cos my flat buying shenanigans are progressing rapidly.

    Rai,

    Good to go!! If you can make your way to Leighton Buzzard I'll pick you up from there, can drop you off on the way back as I need to go to MK afterwards anyway

    See you on Sunday!

    Awesome work chaps!!

    Will be great to see you all as we leave. Tickets aren't required, at least not that we've been told anyway.

    Raymond currently has 4 spare wheels bolted to the roof and two jerry cans on the back. He will have some christmas decorations so shouldn't be toooo hard to spot

    Still on for that time.

    We are aiming to leave at 8:00, and it's apparently 45 miles from where we are atm. Not sure how long this will actually take though, it is London after all.

    Really looking forward to seeing you guys! means a lot to me

    I've just got back from seeing them off. Got lots of photos to go through, which I'll put up later. They seemed one of the better prepared teams compared to some. The had a parade lap around the Top Gear track before setting off and we signed the car before it left. I think their first stop is the Channel Tunnel this evening before making their way down to south Spain by the 17th for a boat to Morrocco.

    Ok, here's the first lot of pictures; I've still to go through the ones from the parade lap.


    Raymond, Team Fool Tank's mighty steed!


    Andy and Neil.


    They've kitted out the car well!


    The boot is well packed.

    Here are some of the other competitors: -


    Yes, that's going on the rally!

    Forgot to mention that as it was at the Top Gear track, we had a couple of impersonators! Anyway, this Merc won the Fairy Award for being the most likely and sensible car on the rally!



    There were a few signs of activity at the Top Gear track...


    Start/Finish


    Around the outside of Gambon (sp?) Corner



    The Austin led the pack around the track: -









    Funkstar brought up the rear of the pack, presumably so he could film it from his bonnet!









    And some time later...




    Seemed to have picked up a hitch-hiker along the way!




    After the lap, they parked in the car park and we all signed the car: -


    And modified a sticker...


    And this was them leaving for their Epic Voyage!
