Smokey and the Bendits

Your name: 
Smokey Ben Hickingbotham Bandit

Your team name: 
Smokey and the Bendits, Yeeee Haaa!

What makes your team special? 
Comradery, Constant persistence, a mild affair with every bar enroute and the fresh smell of diesel in the morning.

How many times have you done the galleryrally? 
I was a virgin, this was my first Rally but I consider myself well and truly broken in now.

What made you want to take part?
A Phone call from Ben one week before.

What was your highlight of 2012: St Tropez? 
The driving rants, the culture, the beauty of France, the biblical sunsets, the challenge, the bar, the comradery, the bonding, the late nights, the early mornings, the sights, the smells, the vistas, the getting lost, the late night drunken swimming, the blocking of super cars on a mountain road, the paper plane lobbing and oh yeah, the Win!

What did you do to raise your fundraising target?
To be continued…

What advise would you give to someone thinking of doing a galleryrally? 
Every man, woman and beast should throw themselves in the deep end of a rally at some point. If you’re pondering the 2013 Rally stop pondering and sign up now I will personally guarantee that the Rally will enrich your life.
