The Lewis to Lewis Tour is here!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines please!






THE LEWIS TO LEWIS TOUR IN AID OF 353 IS HERE. Saturday 18th May 2013.

Be they monstrous V8s, frugal diesels or nippy 1-litres. Techno hybrids, big capacity trucks or high-revving motorcycle engines, it’s time to turn the key, point the wheels in the direction of Claverdon and join us at the start line for the 2013 ‘Lewis to Lewis’.

The idea – To join team 353… on a one-day driving or riding homage from Claverdon, the home of Conrad Lewis, to Dereham and the home of his fallen comrade Lewis Hendry – and back again – in the same day. The challenge – We will have a number of light hearted ‘Top Gear’ challenges on the way with at least 2 key drop-in activities – one of which will be the completion of ‘353 Team Miles’ at Rockingham Raceway. The journey with these diversions and challenges is in the region of 353 miles itself and there will be a prize for the entrant that gets the closest to that magical mileage number when we return to Claverdon.

The date – It all takes place on Saturday 18th May 2013.

The start and finish line – We start at the famous Durham Ox, Shrewley – arriving for coffee and tea at 8.00am, with all cars on their way to check point one by 8.30am. We should be back at the Durham Ox by 7.00pm with food and drink available on our return.

The costs – It costs just £35.30 to enter a car and £10 per passenger (please complete the attached form). In return for the entrance fee you get: branding for the car or bike, entrance to our call-in venues, your named sponsorship of one of the ‘team miles’ at Rockingham and the eternal thanks of the 353 team and our nominated charities. All you need to pay for is fuel, food and beverage.

The legals – Please check that you are covered to complete the event. This is not a rally as that would invalidate your insurance. It’s actually a treasure hunt or leisure drive. There is no competitive element other than trying to be the closest to reach 353 miles covered during the day. We hope that you can either join us or pass this to friends and colleagues who might like to take part.
