Shameless plugging

An excuse to borrow a Land Rover

The Brecon Beacons, yesterday

There will be no Sniff Petrol smartarse Twitter commentary on Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix because Sniff Petrol will be deep in the phone signal-free depths of Welsh Wales. Here’s why…

This weekend four of Sniff Petrol’s friends are taking part in something called the Thunderwalk, a non-stop 54 mile trek across the pointiest parts of the Brecon Beacons, to be completed in 24 hours or less.

Due to idleness and the wrong sort of shoes, Sniff Petrol will not be walking but will be acting as support crew by roaring about the place in a Land Rover Defender 110 towing a tanker full of tea and a curtainside full of Kendal Mint Cake.

Predictably, this entire endeavour is not for the fun of it. We’re doing it to raise money for a charity called Together For Short Lives which cares for terminally ill children and provides support for their parents.

If you’re feeling warm of heart, pure of soul and open of wallet you can sponsor our efforts here. Otherwise may your underpant drawer become full of bees.
