    THECHALLENGE

    With a theme of motoring nostalgia and through the ages we set ourselves the challenge to drive 923 miles from G-Park Northampton in the UK to Cannes in the south of France in just 3 days.

    Not only does this pose a unique challenge on the participants but it also presents an opportunity to raise funds for our preferred charity partner and reduce the environmental impact of travelling to MIPIM where Gazeley will be exhibiting its European/global platform.

    Each day if we achieve our target we will donate the equivalent and double it to our preferred charity chosen for this challenge. Our partners on this challenge are Chetwood’s who have been working with Gazeley for a number of years.

    FOLLOWOUR JOURNEY

    We have set ourselves the target of completing approximately 307 miles a day in a convoy of five vehicles. Gazeley has a team of four drivers competing in the challenge who will take it in turns driving the G-Wagon. Routes have been set so that particular checkpoints along the way are achievable during both morning and afternoon sessions.
