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. (

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 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.

La Tomatina, Bunol

On Wednesday morning I hooked up with Russel and Andrew from the Bangers and Cash team and together we took a coach to Bunol to participate in this year's tomato festival.

Words cannot describe the madness that went on in the narrow streets of this tiny town. We got right into the centre of the action and by the end of the fight were covered head to toe in tomato sauce.

I took lots of video footage that I will upload as soon as I get back to the UK.

Good, I'm looking forward to a chance to ketchup with you.

(Someone had to say it and I've saved the rest of you the embarrassment.)
