The Crew

Over the years we've had a pretty consistent core of 3, 4 if we include Doog who tends to go 'cos it's what he does for a living.

 

Deep down we're all jealous of him - no quibbles, he's got the most glamorous job out of all of us.

 

Ison did spend a brief time ensuring trucks cleaned their tyres properly at a land fill site but, other than that, none of us gets close.

 

 

Tree & Ison have been there every time since we started doing this, only missing one year because of a stomach complaint (they were too fat to stuff more Tartiflette in).

 

The general feeling is that they'll still be going when the cars are electric. They'll still nod to the past, having petrol for breakfast.

 

Hot Sausage is there more often than not, and his non appearance excuses take some beating... "I'm in Singapore", "I'm climbing Kilimanjaro" and so on...

 

 

Other people drift in and out, and we try to keep a relatively open door policy.

What we really need is someone who can carry beer, carry a conversation and, when it all goes wrong, carry the can.

2016 was possibly the dampest yet - drowned rats was the phrase that sprang to mind. That said, good camp fires helped out immensely

2017 is booked, ferry and tunnel organised and now it's just the saving for food and drink to go.

Start your engines....

Tree

After being something of a big 'un for years, has managed through a combination of luck, skill and perseverance to get his waist measurement down to a 31. The weight loss was nothing to do with undiagnosed diabetes. Definitely not.

Ison

A legend in his own lunchtime. Proud supporter of 3am walks to the tribune's and becoming increasingly deviant as the years roll on.

The crew's glam man. International travel, expense account, the lot.

Doog 

He designs cars for a living. Some of them win Le-Mans... some don't. Looking forward to his next design hitting the streets in the next couple of years.

Tumbleweed

Seriously, don't speak to this fella on the phone. The pauses between you asking a question and him responding can be terrifying.

Credited with the invention of drive home drinking - why had we never thought of it before?

G-Spot 

The rising star of the crew. 1st year there and he managed to get us all in the local press. Genius.

Captain Caviar

The jury is out, but we're all convinced he's a friend of Dorothy. In his defense he's bloody good at lugging 50 bottles of beer about.

D2

His face when he realised his hangover may clear for the start of the race was an image that'll last a life time. Going back to bed after the driver briefing was punishable by beer.

Blood

For years it's been "once was enough" for this fella. He only goes and makes his return 11 years after his first vist.

Flapper

Owner of PrintWhizz (the best deals on printing in the UK, apparently) - it's about time he got in to printing vinyl graphics to save us the cost of stickering up the car every year. (NOW DOING NAME STICKERS AND BACK WINDOW GRAPHICS).

Simon Pegg

Flapper's bruv, and the reason for their non-attendance in 2013. Seriously, a stag-do to Vegas?? Have you learnt nothing?

The Greek

Never has so much been consumed by so few. He loves his grub, that's all we're saying.

The Dentist

Fortunately we never needed to rely on his medical expertise, but it's nice to know someone is there to fix our teeth if too much drink causes us to get them kicked in.
