It's RBRR (Round Britain Reliability Run) Time again

 Time to drive 2000 miles in 48 hours around Britain and raise some money for charity again.

This time around I'm not using one of my own Triumph's and am acting as a co-driver driving Mark Smith's excellent "Flying Bogey"  Vitesse Saloon. In fact it's the same team of drivers that completed the last RBGRR in my Dolomite as we are also being joined by Glynn Davis who I've shared the run with several times in the Dolomite.

Mark's Vitesse


As usual we are part of the wider Club Triumph RBRR event and collecting sponsorship for charity. This time the chosen charity is Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).  The charity is very poignant this time as one of Mark’s friends has recently been diagnosed with MND. For me the disease always brings up thoughts of the late Professor Stephen Hawking who suffered from MND for 55 years of his life until he passed away aged 76. Sadly though, unlike Stephen most sufferers of MND only live for 2 years from diagnosis so it is usually terminal. 

Over the years Club Triumph has raised over 700 thousand pounds for several charities. This year’s event takes place from Friday 1st to Sunday 7rd October with over 130 classic Triumphs due to take part. 

Please consider helping  me to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association for the amazing work they do, because MND is such a debilitating condition that means a difficult end to a severely shortened life.
