Callum Roberts Sponsor Porsche Spyder Run

Author: Callum Roberts Thursday, 14 October 2010





The guys in Callum Roberts office are huge car fans, as many of our clients will know (they may have spotted a photo of a certain Mr J Clarkson with Shaun & Dillon).


We are also proud to support charities whenever we can and were approached by a friend (Adrain Knights) and member of the Porsche Club GB, who was undertaking a charity run from John O Groutes to Lands End in a 1950's Porsche Spyder and asked if we would lend our support.


We were told that this epic journey was on the behalf of the 'Lighthouse Club Benevolent Fund', the construction industry charity (which supports families of construction workers who die at the workplace) and Adrain and his co driver Gideon would brave the British weather, pot-holed roads and other manic road users in an attempt to raise £2,000 for the fund.


The drive would take place on 10th & 11th October 2010. A distance of over 1,000 miles in two days in a car designed in the 1950’s!

The Porsche 550 was a sports car produced by Porsche from 1953-1956.

Inspired by the Porsche 356, which was created by Ferry Porsche, this car became famous more so for being known as the car in which the famous Hollywood actor 'James Dean' died in on 30th September 1955.

Fortunately, Adrain and Gideon's journey was completed in the little Spyder and the journey ended in a less fiery way than poor James Deans and Adrian and Gideon passed by the monthly Porsche Club meet at Brands Hatch on the way home. There, they could enjoy one last beer before gaining a good nights sleep in thier own beds!
