Fancy a wild, off-road ride with ‘The Stig’?

Fancy being driven in a Wildcat by Ben Collins, aka The Stig?

YOU can have a great thrill and help out a great cause.
Pay a visit to Rallyday at Castle Combe, Wiltshire and you could experience a ride with Ben Collins, former Top Gear Stig.
To support the Race2Recovery campaign, which raises funds for disabled and wounded British forces personnel, you can enjoy the thrill of a ride in a Qt Services Wildcat 500 driven by Ben.
The event, on Saturday, September 17, raises funds for three charities: Help For Heroes, The Royal British Legion and Combat Stress. The campaign is bidding to compete in and finish the 2013 Dakar Rally, one of the toughest challenges in the world. In doing so, they aim to raise £2-million.
The team is running two Qt Wildcats in the event. They were shown preparing for the challenge in the latest series of Top Gear. As a result, Ben became patron on the charity.
He is one of the drivers giving passenger rides at Rallyday.
Rides with Collins are priced at £250 while rides in one of the other Wildcats are priced at £20, with all proceeds going directly to Race2Recovery’s goals.
As a bonus, the team has secured two passenger rides in state-of-the-art stage rally cars: one in the works Ford Fiesta WRC, built in the UK by M-Sport and one in the Mitsubishi Lancer EvolutionX R4, also developed in the UK by the company formed from the ex-works Mitsubishi World Rally Team, MML Sports.
The driver of the Fiesta is yet to be confirmed but at the wheel of the Lancer will be former works Mitsubishi driver, Harri Rovanpera, who claimed second overall in Mitsubishi’s last official event in the WRC.
Both the rides in the Fiesta and the Lancer will be auctioned by Race2Recovery online, with the proceeds again contributing to the campaign’s goals.
For more information on the Race2Recovery campaign and how to support the cause, go to www.race2recovery.co.uk. The website will also feature links to the auctions for the passenger rides in the Fiesta and Lancer, each of which also come with a pair of ticket for entry on the day.
