Three members of Maesteg MC this weekend begin a challenge across Europe in a 25 year old car.
Padrig Wakefield-Newberry, Rhys Ford and Ben Davies – all in their 20s – are tackling the 2,700 miles round trip from Northern France to Prague via the Alps and skirting the Mediterranean.
Their challenge was to find a car for under £500 to take part in the Motoscape Rally covering 12 countries in 7 days but also including Nurburgring, Stelvio Pass as well as Lamborghini and Ferrari Museums. They have bought, serviced and MoT tested an Audi 80 Avant.
They intend to raise money for charity along the way as well and return at the end of next week.
Padrig said, “We have marshalled on events before but never done anything like this and are really looking forward to it, and raising money for the Wales Air Ambulance, which Maesteg MC support.”
They have collected £700 in donations to date. Money raised so far has been by sponsorship forms but here is the link to the donation page: https://www.gofundme.com/706qscw
