The local team from Nottingham consists of Paul Brooks, James Riley, James Gibson and Bradley Perrow.

The team members bought the cars for an event back in 2019 but due to the pandemic this could not go ahead, they are now ready to embark on this gruelling event –

Organisers said:

’14 hour days driving in a car is not as fun as it sounds – but it is all worth it for the good causes we support.’

For Paul and Brad this is there 4th time taking part and they know how difficult it is.
