motor sport fund-raising event
McKay & Vanluyten will be competing for the 2nd time!
competing in 2009 – hopefully back in 2010
In 1972 The Times journalist Alan
Hall threw down the gauntlet to Fleet Street and readers to bring back the
first bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau to his London Desk.
Over the years the event evolved
and it is now a distance trial, for safety, but also to avoid reputational risk for sponsors. Starting off from London the 2008 event comprised out of old and new
machinery will be competing to ‘Bring Back the Beaujolais’ after its launch in Beaujeu at midnight
on Wednesday 19th November 2008.
This year’s field of
competitors will be as eclectic as ever; ranging from a 1954 Frazer Nash to
the recently unveiled XKR-S and XK60 60th Anniversary Special Edition.
Amongst the older Jaguars there will be a selection of XKs,
E-Types and at least two D-Type power beasts will be
at Michelin House/Bibendum for the start.

All competitor cars afford great
spectacle en route (London, Paris, Macon and back) as they compete in the Navigational
Challenge gaining publicity pre, during and post event. The event provides
exciting promotion for many companies, given that all competitors fall
within wide target markets and demographic groups, and this in the UK
(central London), en route in France via central Paris and in the case of
the “Pitstop Boys” Belgium also.
Courtesy of brand new supporters, Trackaphone,
Vodafone and Blackberry, all competitors will be equipped for this
year’s expedition with their own mobile tracking device. This
means that those not lucky enough to be enjoying the D roads of France will
be able to see our every move, short or long!
Details of how to access tracking during the event will be
provided in due course.
Prizes are awarded for Highest
Fund-raiser, Shortest Distance and the coveted ‘Wooden Spoon’
won last year by the 'Back to Beaujolais' Delorean team
