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.
Well done Andy Pritchard and Gary Campbell.
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.
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.
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!
2019, PUT MOTOR SPORT FOR MS TO BED? PARTY NIGHT.
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).
Our grand total is now a whopping £40,034.88. Yes, we have smashed the £40k before Christmas.
200% of my original target, (which I didn't think I had any chance of hitting).
Just Giving is also showing another £458 in 'gift aid' to be added to the total as well.
As I said when I won the Fundraiser of the Year Award, I'm gobsmacked!
Thank you so much Steve Markham and all of the guys and gals at the RCGC Senior Section.
Check out their Rutland County Golf Club page on this website to see exactly how much help they have been this year.
Congratulations to Dick Trevett on winning race one of the Drayton Manor Park MG Metro Cup at Brands Hatch 30/04/17.
Another winner with our stickers on it.
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.
Saturday 28th September 2019.
Well, we put Motor Sport for MS to bed on the evening of the 28th September, well sort of. We put the race circuit side of MS4MS to bed but we will still be collecting at local events and will be taking part in the 2020 Newport Pagnell Carnival as well as the 2020 Yardley Gobion Festival of transport.
We also announced that with the help of the Senior Section of the Rutland County Golf Club and their Captain Mr Steve Markham and the money they have collected and pledged, over £5,500 so far added to the almost £33,400 we have raised so far we are rapidly approaching £40,000!
How did that happen???
We also announced that we are not going out lying down and that plans are in place for a 24-hour endurance event around Willen Lake, Milton Keynes over the weekend of the 1st/2nd August 2020.
Starting at 2pm on the 1st of August a 3 man team of drivers will take on the 24 hours with each driver taking on 2-hour shifts with 4 hour rest periods until 24 hours has been completed. Wish us luck.
EVEN BETTER PLEDGE US MONEY!

'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!
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.
