With less than a week to go the four man Centurion team have completed their intensive fitness training programme and are in supreme physical shape for the Vado Rally that will take them through Northern Europe and into Scandinavia all in aid of the DIY, Builders Merchant and Housewares industry charity The Rainy Day Trust and the Teenage Cancer Trust. The “4 Bobs” (yes – we’ll all be dressed as Bob the Builder!) will undertake the 2500 mile round trip in the 1989 Volkswagen T25 Transporter with over 300,000km on the clock and which has been given a facelift for the occasion. The vehicle is running well and the team are confident of success … but are seeking comprehensive specialist European breakdown cover and enhanced life assurance.

were moments of minor tension (and some dissent it must be said) in relation to being dressed up as a children’s character Team Captain and Rainy Day Trust Chairman, Peter Stone, has skilfully diffused the situation by broadening the scope of their appearance so that at varying stages of the journey they will be seen as officers of the law protecting the good people of France and Belgium from villains, all four of The Beatles and a small but fearsome legion of Viking Warriors. One look at the team will tell you immediately how excited they are at this prospect.

Some of the team (and his whole family in fact) have privately expressed their concern that the Captain has not been seen in normal dress since mid April

In recent pre-rally trials the T25 reached speeds of up to 34 mph (on downhill sections) and only 2 of the 4 crew were sick as a result of the vibration.
