Volvo 850 enters Rome or Bust rally

Post  RaceForChamps on Fri Jul 26, 2013 4:48 am

Hi everyone,

a couple of you may already know that i have just purchased a Volvo 850 to take part in the banger rally Rome or Bust.  Its starts in Cornwall and we pass through 9 countries in 5 days and finish in Rome.  We purchased the 850 from Tim at Volvogear.co.uk, we paid £300 for it and it almost has 1/4 million miles on the clock but i have every faith in it.

Myself and my brother are footing the bill for everything involved in the rally so that every single penny raised will go to charity.  We are raising money for CHAMPS appeal who are trying to cure Hirschsprungs disease and supporting families who are affected by it.

So please if you can go to our just giving page and donate anything you can.

Just to update you all.

We made it.

9 countries in 5 days in a £300 850 with 230k on the clock. The 850 was epic, it didnt let us down at all, not once. We even steamed two laps around the Nurburgring at 11 min and it still kept going. The Stelvio pass was slightly tricky in HMS 850 but amazing though. So far our total is up to £1300.

Now the most important bit.

THE VOLVO 850
