Motoscape 2012 Rally Update

Heres a quick update on the 2012 Motoscape Banger Rally

This years rally is gearing up to be the biggest and best in Motoscape history with in excess of 175 people.

Looking at some of the Facebook pictures and talking to some of the teams, most people are making a fantastic effort on decorating the cars and many teams are raising money for charity, so everyone, great effort!

Here at the Motoscape HQ preparations are in full swing , Peter has been very busy securing all the hotels (which is a mammoth task) and venues for the final night meals for the Venice and Prague rallies.

Full itineraries will be provided before the rally commences.

Paul’s been busy dreaming up the various daily challenges and answering all the team queries and questions.

Mark has been busy updating the Facebook / website information and preparing the comprehensive daily packs to ensure everybody knows what to do, and see every day.

We will be sending comprehensive checklists (detailing everything you should have) to all teams in ample time before the start of the rally, so everyone can relax knowing they have everything they need to have a fantastic time.

If anyone has any questions whatsoever just give us a call on 0113 282 3181 or contact Paul on 07854 251890.

Thank you for choosing Motoscape and we are all looking forward to meeting all the teams in September.

Why are we doing this? – Team M & M’s

Following on from our previous blog posts from Team Grayson & Team ASDA, here’s an introduction blog from another team on this years banger rally, M & M’s.

Here’s why Michael & Michelle are taking part in the Motoscape Rally, have a read below and check out their car below:

Towards the end of last year we decided that we wanted to do something different in 2012 and raise money for a charity in the process.  We are now in the process of getting the Alfa ready for the Motoscape rally in September which involves travelling through 10 countries across Europe in 7 days.

We will be selling advertising on the car with all proceeds going to

Naomi House and jacksplace are hospices for children and young adults that provide support to children and young people with conditions that mean they are unlikely to live to become adults.

The charity provides care to families and young adults living in communities across the seven counties of Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire.

Alf…The Alfa

We have owned the car for about 10 years, but due to the Skyline taking preference in the day to day drive to work the Alfa has been parked up for the last 4 years, under a car cover very neglected.

This rally was the perfect time to bring him back to life. So last month March 2012 we uncovered him (Just to set the record straight, Michael would like to think that Alf should be a she, but as he has had a lady owner all these years he is obviously a he!). Anyway, in March we took off the very old faded cover and hooked up a battery.  Would you believe it, he fired up straight away.  This answered our question as to should we take Alf across Europe or by an old banger!

We are now in April, Alf has been washed all moss and mold removed and, taken up the yard to have some much needed maintenance!
