Well, I guess I should introduce myself. I am Mel and I have been given the task, along with the lovely Sarah of looking after this wonderful piece of work so lovingly constructed by Mike! I had the pleasure of working with Mike for some time and I attended the same university as Matt. It was I who introduced them to each other and on that very evening the wheels were set in motion for the rally!

On arrival at Hyde Park on Saturday we were glad to find that the car was still intact and had survived the trip to London. This miracle may have occured because Mike was driving! Although Matt who drove to the starting line in the morning had managed to get lost trying to find Hyde Park! After providing them with some little presents which I am certain will either be broken, lost or destroyed by the end of the trip, before I knew it the goodbyes were said and a few tears shed (not from the boys, they were far too excited!) and after a short wait - due to a traffic jam and one of the other cars overheating thereby causing a delay - they were off out of Hyde Park and into the London traffic.  I don't think they saw us when we waved to them by the traffic lights but they did beep the horn!
