Charterhouse Turf Machinery are intending to prove that their expertise extends far beyond turf in April when employees Richard Heywood and Curtis Allen take part in The Crumball Rally, a four day European race from Boulogne to Nice via Strasbourg and Lake Como.

The pair, along with their friend mechanic Steven McGill, will take to the asphalt under 'The Dukes of Scotland' banner.

Rally rules state that each of the 80 cars competing has to be at least 15 years old and cost no more than £200. Each team has to theme their car, and inspiration for 'The Dukes of Scotland's' Audi 80 came from the General Lee that featured in the original 1970's TV show, The Dukes of Hazzard.

As Richard explained: "We really wanted to get the authentic feel of the General Lee. We went for a full-on, bright orange paint job and a Scottish flag emblazoned on the roof as opposed to the original Confederate flag."

However, there is more to the trip than just painting and customising their chosen car. The Charterhouse team are doing the race in aid of The Beanfeast Charity for Children, that supports The Scottish Society for Autism.

Richard added: "The whole thing has been a real challenge so far, from getting the car ready to planning the route but we are really getting into the spirit of it now."
