Setting lap times around the UK's Motor Sport venues
on an 8mph (ish) mobility scooter.
Raising money for the MS Society.
Well, it's all done.
I have achieved my dream of setting an official lap time on every mainland MSA licensed race circuit.
I, along with many other people never thought I would get this 'Bloody Silly Idea' off the ground let alone manage to set 29 official lap times on fully licensed circuits!
Along the way, we have picked up the accolade of winning the MS Societies coveted '2018 Fundraiser of the year award' and raised over £44,000 for the Central MS Society along with my local MS Group and the Peterborough MS Group via my old mate Steve Markham.
Steve, who along with his wife Ann assisted myself and my wife Karen, in initially setting up MS4MS has spent 2019 as the Captain of the senior section of the Rutland County Golf Club and has been involved in various fundraising events at the club including the Captains Day Golf Tournament.
Steve and the Committee of the Seniors Section raised £6,029 which was handed via MS4MS to the Peterborough MS Group at the Golf Clubs Senior Section AGM in November.
Well done to everyone who has put any effort of any kind into the MS4MS team and thanks to you all.
Below is an interview I did with BBC 3 Counties Radio after getting back from Lydden Hill.

WHERE IT ALL STARTED.
The loneliness of the 8mph scooter rider.
Silverstone 30th April 2016.
Follow us on.
WE HAVE DONE IT.
The final corner of the final circuit.
Lydden Hill, Sunday 21st October 2018 marked the end of a major journey.
Thank you to everyone who helped in any way to make this happen.
27th April 2018.
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 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.
HOW MUCH HAVE WE RAISED SO FAR?
