Hi! This is the page of the finest team in this years ramshackle rally, '664 the Neighbour of the Beast'!

If you're thinking this looks like a thinly disguised excuse for a bunch of guys to get trolleyed up Gumball/Cannonball Run style through Europe, frankly, you're half right. We have a vehicle that cost us a princely sum of £120 and are one of 115 teams each with their own theme competing in this year's Dover-Valencia Ramshackle Rally. (www.ramshacklerally.com)

We've pimped our ride up in a Tiger style, and will be wearing 'Safari Hunter' outfits, so now all we have to do is drive this thing to Valencia. Sound too easy?

That's Spain...via France, Italy and Monaco! It's over 1,500 miles with a few obstacles between us and the chequered flag such as, The Alps, Border Patrols, Lee's driving and a fair bit of Cabin Fever, not to mention having to sell a kidney or two on the way to pay for petrol... Oh, and did anyone mention the 'daily challenges' we have to do on the way? Whatever they are?!

Anyway, rather than just have drunken mindless fun at the stopover parties, we're also raising some money for the Anthony Nolan Trust, who do fantastic work providing donors for people in need of bone marrow transplants (as well as research into these transplants), so if you haven't already, please visit http://www.justgiving.com/664 and give generously (remember to tick the Gift Aid Box).

To follow our progress, revisit this page frequently between Thu 20th and Tue 25th August, for live updates on who's just let one off in the car, or who's fallen over drunk first, or even if we made it to our daily location.

Thanks,
Jas (Brains), Dan (Danimal), Wayne (Slugger) & Lee (Rod Street)

Rod Street becomes the first person to wear the dunce hat. He won the prestigious trophy by driving the wrong way round a roundabout. 3 women-like screams later and a possible head on with a renault scenic and we were happily on our way again!

Not entirely true, except for the girlie screams. We didn't actually get anywhere round the roundabout. I did snatch the prize from Dan though, who's Staling, starting in gear and pulling away in the wrong gear was impressive.

It's too hot for the hats and the shirts have withered away from the smell.
