After much deliberation, I have decided that I am going to do the Cannonball 8000.
What is it?!
For those of you who don’t know what it is check out the website here.
There are going to be 240 drivers (120 cars), mostly petrolheads but the odd celebrity also.
In the evenings we will enjoy dinner and maybe the odd beer (however we know we need to get to bed early – so we can be nice and rested for a hard days drive!). 🙂
Who am I doing this with?!
With one of my very best friends Ben Scammell, possibly better known to you as the man behind Pipeline Card. We have for a long discussed doing a special event to celebrate us leaving our 20s behind and hitting 30 (he is 29 and I am now 30).
We looked at doing the Bull Run, however the costs were just eye watering.
What are we doing it in?
A monstrous Mitsubishi Evo 9, this thing is heavily modified and its an animal.
Heres some pictures…
Why are we doing it?
Its simply once in a lifetime opportunity, and a real box ticking exercise!
Additionally we are going to get some good PR for bit10 and our other sponsors.
I am sure I will followup with more posts as we know more. We are probably going to be doing some live on the road blogging, streaming, etc. Watch this space!
