1000 Miles


12th Jul 2015
Event Date: 12th Jul 2015

Although not strictly a competitive event, the Thousand Mile challenge undertaken by 22 people in eleven cars pitted man, woman and machine against traffic, mechanical adversity, and exhaustion.

A report will appear in the next Gazette with the full tales of derring-do, but in the meantime we can reveal that the full thousand mile route was completed by all but three cars.  Of these, five chain driven and the one FN-BMW completed the distance within 24 hours. 

New member Robin Batchelor has published an article on prewarcar.com on the successful women in the 1000 miles.  See:  http://www.prewarcar.com/magazine/previous-features/chain-gang-nash-ladies-drive-1000-miles-in-24-hours-026726.html
