Well, we saved the best for last! Guess which car has been invited to join the landmark GUM rally in Moscow on 28th July? With a starting number of 007? Starting in Red Square? Thanks again to RUAMC who are partners with the rally. Phew!
This is a cracker! The RUAMC (Russian breakdown assistance) have arranged for us to tour the new CSKA stadium in Moscow, and to watch a training session of the rugby squad. They will then arrange for a media moment – photos of us in front of the stadium with some of their patrol and recovery trucks, attended by journalists! We might feature on state TV…
After lobbying in vain for AA cover for Russia, Chris contacted RUAMC (Russian Auto Moto Club) who provide roadside assistance across the whole of Russia. Imagine our surprise and delight when they contacted us to offer assistance and technical support for the entire time that we are in Russia. For free. Incredible. And very reassuring!
Kelvin pulls the stops out again! New stickers for all four wings, completing the final look! He can wrap just about anything! https://mobile.twitter.com/vkgraphic?lang=en
Just a day before the actual departure and Barry at Poolman Patios http://www.poolmanpatiosandlandscaping.co.uk/ makes a generous and very welcome donation to the challenge! We make a last minute dash to Kelvin (VK Graphics) for a new front wing sticker… Wonder if there will be any patio orders from Siberia!! Delighted to also receive a donation from The Austin Seven Workshop https://www.theaustinsevenworkshop.com/
