Solar Graphics

Camperite Leisure

Visit sponsors website David‘s first comment was “it’s absolutely barking mad”! With an opener like that, the signs were good and sure enough David became one of our greatest supporters over the months of preparation.

Driftgate 2000

Red Box Fire Control

Visit sponsors website As the name suggests these guys generously donated a large fire extinguisher which we bolted down in the passenger foot well. Thankfully, we never had the need to call upon it but with up to 100 litres of petrol in the car at some points we were very glad it was there!

Jubilee Clips
