Well, what a surprise that was.
We have been named as the MS Society's 2018 'Fund Raiser of the Year' at their very glitzy awards ceremony.
Held at County Hall, London the awards were hosted by Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills.
My award was presented to me by MS Ambassador Stuart Nixon MBE.
I would like to thank everyone at the Society for putting on such a slick event and also the judging team who deemed that my little project was worthy of the award. I feel very humble.

SILVERSTONE GRAND PRIX CIRCUIT.
17th June 2018.
On Sunday we managed to complete what we believe to be the only officially timed lap of a currently FIA licenced Formula 1 track.
A time of 24:34.604 gave me an average speed of 8.88mph.
Thanks to all of the friends who came along to help us collect, we managed to raise £555.88.
Thanks also go to everyone at the HSCC and Silverstone for allowing me to do the lap and also collect all around the circuit.
Follow us on.

GOODWOOD CIRCUIT AND HILL.
We have been given permission by the Duke of Richmond and his team at Goodwood to put in an unofficial timed run up the famous Goodwood 'Festival of Speed' Hill on Sunday 5th Aug. We are also setting an officially timed lap of the Goodwood Motor Circuit on Saturday 4th Aug at the Brighton and Hove Motor Clubs Eagle Sprint. Thanks go to the Motor Club for allowing us to take part in their meeting. The Goodwood Marshals Club for organising Saturday. Steve Tarrant of Chequered Flag Services for initially talking to the Duke and all of the Goodwood managers and staff for helping in the organisation.

Motor Sport for MS releases its new theme tune.
Hear it here.

Continuing on from our announcement about Goodwood, I can also announce that I have managed to tie up the ends on an event I have been after for a while.
We WILL be attending and setting a lap time at the Lydden Hill Circuit in Kent over the weekend of the 20th/21st October.
The event we will be running alongside is billed on the Lydden website as- 'Lydden Hill revives historic ‘Lord of Lydden’ motorbike event for October date'.
First run in 1966 a number of top riders have won the title including Shane 'Shakey' Byrne.
We will be setting a lap of the tarmac Circuit on Saturday and a lap of the RallyX Circuit on the Sunday.
This is not only a historic race meeting being revived for Lydden but, it is a historic lap for me as this is the last circuit I needed to get confirmed to have completed an officially timed lap of every major MSA licenced track on the UK Mainland.
In other words, WE HAVE DONE IT...........Time to party.
Well done team and thank you all.
