MINI GIRLS RALLY TEAM sponsorship (2 replies)
We are pleased to announce that the Mini Cooper Register will be sponsoring the Mini Girls Rally Team to “take on the Boys” in the MiniSport Mini Cup, part of the HRCR Old Stager Championship.
The Championship has been running for many years and consists of 7 events, the AGBO Stages, Dixies Historic Challenge, Mid-Summer Stages, Solway Coast, Rally Isle of Man, Mull Rally, Cheviot Stages Otterburn and a reserve event the Hall Trophy.
The all female crew are Louise Thomas (driver) and Emily Easton Page (co-driver) and they are taking up the challenge to compete in a male dominated sport. They have chosen to represent the Marie-Curie Charity and will be raising awareness and reaching out to many people to inform them about Marie Curie and what they can provide for people in need of care and support through terminal illness. Louise was so inspired by the work of the charity following a devastating family loss that she became a Marie Curie Palliative Nurse in 2011, and in 2014 she decided to combine her work and hobby to raise much needed awareness and funds for Marie Curie, and so the Mini Girls Rally Team was formed.
The girls hope to compete in 7 or 8 events this year and we are delighted to support and sponsor them to achieve their aim of raising funds for this very worthy cause. There is a Mini Girls Rally Team Facebook, Instagram and Twitter page and a Just Giving page will also be set up so direct donations to the charity can be given.
Unfortunately, the Mini Girls Rally Team didn't get a run on the AGBO Rally as they were on the reserve entry list, due to no fault of the team! They were really looking forward to the event but it wasn't to be.
They are now looking forward to Dixies Historic Challenge Epynt on 30th April, only 6 weeks to go! They are on the main entry list this time and really looking forward to competing.
The Mini Girls Rally Team are competing in their first event of the year this weekend,
Dixies Historic Challenge
Round of the Mini Sport Cup and Mini Sport Junior Cup
also a round of the HRCR Stage Masters Challenge – Asphalt – Epynt
They also now have a Just Giving fundraising page
