What involved 34 cars, a LOT of dressing up and silliness, a huge amount of teamwork and raised over £150,000 for charity?
The 2017 Pavestone rally. A four-day roadtrip from Dover to Monte Carlo, the Rally crossed ten countries across Europe, starting on September 7th and ending at the Casino in Monte Carlo on September 10th. The Rally was raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Rainy Day Trust charities.
The catch? The teams had to drive the whole way using cars that they had specially purchased for the event, spending no more than £500 on them and complete challenges along the way. In fancy dress.
The first night's stop was Luxembourg City then Day 2 saw the cars heading through Germany and Switzerland with an overnight in Liechtenstein. Day 3 was driving through Austria before turning right over the Stelvio Pass into Italy and finishing the day in Verona. The last day was a straightforward drive to Monte Carlo with the overnight stay in Nice.
Well done to everyone who took part – and those who organised it. In particular, a huge well done to the NBG Ninjas team of Tim Scott, Emma Scott, Kerry Kincade and Rex Nye who won the award for best fundraising.
