British sports car owners across the country are invited to participate in one of the most ambitious driving events in recent history 'The Rumble' - a circumnavigation of London on A and B roads, shadowing the M25 - on 15 September in aid of the Leukaemia Research Fund.
Backed by the Lotus 7 Club of Great Britain, last year's inaugural event attracted close on 100 Caterham 7s, but is now being extended to include other manufacturers for the event to be a 'true celebration of classic British built open top cars.'
Starting at Caterham, Surrey, the cars will head off at 30 second intervals in alternate directions following 'The Rumble' pace notes to a half way destination where the cars and drivers and navigators will congregate for lunch before completing the route and arriving, once again, in Caterham for a post-Rumble barbeque
Charles King-Holford, who originally conceived 'The Rumble', said: "This exceptional day is about enjoying British sports car driving in an well organised environment that fosters fun, comradeship and a genuine shared experience."
The entry fee per car is £40.
Other 'Rumble' events are currently being planned including a 'friendly invasion' of other European capital cities, the first being scheduled for Paris 2005.
'The Rumble' is actively supported by the Lotus 7 Club of Great Britain, Caterham Cars, Comma Oil and Harper Collins Publishing.Published 19 August 2002
