Father and Son teams of 2010

The 2010 banger rally was definitely the year for ‘Father and Son’ teams. There were 5 such teams including Yabba Dabba Doo with Tony and Michael from Cambridge in their Vauxhall Omega, Wundering Wurzels with Steven and Christopher from Sidmouth in their Peugeot 306, Super Charged Mario Brothers with Steve and Peter from Worcester in their Ford Escort estate. There was also CSK Motorsport with Chris and Shane from Castleford in their Citroen Saxo and Monza or Bust with Gerard (Snr) and Gerard (Jnr) from Falkirk in their Mazda MX3.

The prize for the best photo probably has to go to Steve and Peter for their pic of the two of them in their fancy dress sat on the roof of the car overlooking the Rhein river.

It’s almost as good as the Dick Datardlies pic from last year at the Nurburgring.

As for the Wundering Wurzels, we are not sure who was the biggest party animal. We think dad stayed out just as late as son. Good on you!

Chris was a many times winner of the UK carting championship in his younger days and this has rubbed off on young Shane, ‘King of the Saxo’s’ who won an important race just days before coming on the trip. We guess Shane was itching to get behind the wheel on the rally but he’ll have to wait another 3 years until he’s 18 to show everyone how it’s done.

Last but not least’ Monza or Bust, they won the 1st prize in the ‘Roll on Rimini’ rally and instantly donated some of the prize money to charity.

Perhaps next year will be the year of the mother and daughter. We will see!!!
