A team of Oxfordshire and Berkshire businessmen are on the run… across India.
Eight friends are taking on a road rally from Chennai to Goa later this month to raise cash for charity.
They will be travelling in a Hindustan Ambassador – voted the best taxi in the world by Richard Hammond – driving 2,389km (1,484 miles) from April 22 to May 2.
The team led by Chris Pengilly (team name Fat Boy Slim) from Kingwood, Henley, includes Dr John Delfosse (Doc) from Harwell.
The journey takes in some of the most striking scenery in India from the historical cities to the edge of forests with tigers and elephants and from temples to the stunning beaches of Goa.
The intrepid group is raising funds for the International Refugee Trust and specifically its StepUp project in Uganda which changes lives for good.
Other team members include Kevin Rapson (Sir Rabbit) of Emmer Green, Mark Barrett (Yogi Bear) of Burghfield, Steve Belam (Rocket) of Kingwood, Henley, Bill Bucknell (Baron) of Bucklebury, Richard Woodhead (Woody) of Bucklebury and Chris Keen (Stag) of Reading.
Vans from Rabbits Vehicle Hire, owned by Kevin Rapson, will be sporting Race Across India stickers.
For a donation of £250 and more your name will be put on a Rabbits vehicle displayed in The Oracle, Reading, when the crew return.
