Our 3 teams are as follows:

Team 1: Simply Clever

Team 2: Škoda Rapids

Michelle Wing, Rory Abel, Richard Townsend, Kevin Fox and Jack Scott

Team 3: The ‘Simpsons’

Spectators are welcome to come and cheer on the teams, as there will also be a barbeque and other refreshments available from lunchtime till the end of the event with the proceeds going to Rotary Foundation Charities including ‘End Polio Now’ and ‘Village Water’.

Trophies for the first 3 teams in each race will bring home a trophy and no doubt there will be some celebratory spraying of fizzy drinks! Also, amongst the competitors in the first race are teams from Seat Lowestoft and Cooper BMW, so who will come out on top – ŠKODA, Seat or BMW? The race is on…
