SILVERSTONE 30th March 2019.
What a result for the Milton Keynes and District Motor Club
Metro racers in the MG Metro Cup races at Silverstone last weekend. 4 cars were out proudly running with our MS4MS stickers in the two rounds on Saturday. Joining Championship regulars Dick Trevett and Richard Garrard my little? brother Mark Wilson was making the 1st of several guest appearances in Richard's spare car this year. It was also fantastic to see Kyla Birdseye Trevett returning to the Championship after an enforced lay off due to health issues.
In race 1 Dick finished 2nd with Mark Finishing 4th, Richard 5th and Kyla 6th.
In the afternoon race, Unfortunately, Dick was forced into a DNF with gearbox issues. Mark managed to get to grips with the Metro quickly and finished 2nd whilst Richard and Kyla kept the fighting in the family battling together throughout the race with Richard finally coming home in 4th with Kyla 5th.
Well done guys and thank you for continuing to spread the word for MS4MS.
When I came up with the Idea of 'Challenge [email protected]' Everyone said: "not another one"!
I had absolutely no idea how it would go or how much it would raise, all I knew was, as this disease gets worse I need to push harder!
I had in the back of my mind that If I didn't raise £1,000 I would be disappointed but, I try not to put pressure on my helpers and collectors. We have collected pretty much all of the money that was pledged and we are not chasing the people who still owe.
I thanked all of the helpers, collectors, in fact, everyone involved in pushing us over the £30k on Facebook last week.
I now have another massive 'thank you' to put out there. 'Challenge [email protected]' has actually raised £2,566.
Well done everyone.....And thank you all.
Motor Sport for MS is pleased to announce our new link up with the Rutland County Golf Club Seniors Section through its new 2019 Senior Section Chairman Mr Steve Markham and the Peterborough MS Group.
Ian Duggan has been showing his support for MS4MS in the Ginetta G40 Cup series.
My little brother (little?), managed another class win in his Richard Lloyd Golf at the 2017 Donington Classic meeting.
He is of course running with our MS4MS stickers on the side. Well done Mark.
'CHALLENGE [email protected]' What a result!
Charlie had a bit of a mixed weekend at Thruxton. Unfortunately, a bit of a coming together on Saturday meant that Charlie could only finish in 21st position. This meant that a start position of 21st on Sunday was always going to put the 16-year old on his back foot. A spirited drive saw him work his way through the field and eventually finish in 17 place.
Money is tight for the race team so if anyone fancies helping out an up and coming youngster you can contact them via me or via Charlies Facebook page.
The winning car on the 2016 Rockingham Stages ran with our sticker proudly displayed on its nose for the event.
MOTOR SPORT FOR MS WINS AGAIN (with a little help from our friends).

'A BLOODY SILLY IDEA'
The story behind this song.-
Written by Phil Dyer (on the right) and played by him, his son Dan and Karen Cas on the Cajon.
'The MK Fleas'.
The song is called 'A bloody silly idea' because- that is what I have called this project right from the very start.
Very apt I still think!
What a voice.
Jess is a professional singer and music teacher.
She trained at the Royal Academy of Music in London and passed out with a 2.1.
Oh, and did I mention, she is our Neice.
Proud Uncle time!
Congratulations to John Griffiths & Nigel Wetton in the Mercury Garage/ Rex Pet Hotel Team Subaru on winning class and a magnificent 6th overall on the Brands Hatch Rally.
Thanks to Chris Hodgetts for all his help in getting our stickers on the Elite team cars racing in the BTCC support programme at Thruxton over the weekend of the 18th/19th May. Congratulations to James Headley on his win live on ITV4 on Sunday.
A quote from Elites driver coach Chris Hodgetts-
"Nailed it, plus warrior performances from Tom Emson and Joel Pearson , superb recovery drives.... team Elite is FAST ...."

MK MS GROUP DINNER.
On Friday 25th January we were honoured to be invited to the Milton Keynes MS Group annual dinner.
Whilst we were there we handed over a cheque for £7,000, this being the amount we collected over the 2018 season around the race circuits and via many more fundraising events.
Congratulations to Simon Mauger and Brian Cammack on winning the Jersey Rally outright whilst carrying our Motor Sport for MS stickers.
Thanks guys and well done.
Charlie Mcleod and the 2019 Ginetta Jnr Championship.
Saturday 28th September 2019.
As most of you know, over the last 3 years we have held 2 fundraising events for MS4MS at the Cannon pub in Newport Pagnell.
I would like to say a massive 'Thank You' to Molly, Angie and all the staff at the Cannon for all they have done for us over the last couple of events.
It's now time to spread things out a little. The current Royal British Legion Club, soon to be the 'Ousebank House' have also been massive supporters of MS4MS from the start of the project and I'm proud to announce the club as the venue of my 'Put Motor Sport for MS to Bed Party Night'.
Put it in your diaries, it will be emotional, certainly for me!
I think I have laid on an interesting mix of music/entertainment again.
I'm sorry, you will have to put up with me on the mike for a little while again.
All the details about the evening are on the poster.
See you there guys.
Many thanks to Ian Duggan who has been showing his support for Motor Sport for MS last weekend at Silverstone at the British GT Meeting. Congratulations on the race win Ian.
