Monte Carlo or Bust

The UK group of CLAAS companies have chosen as its charity for 2018 the British Heart Foundation (BHF), in fond memory of a colleague and friend Patrick Wells, who passed away very suddenly last summer. On the first anniversary of his death, four Directors of CLAAS UK will recreate the 1960s classic movie “Monte Carlo or Bust” and attempt to drive a 16 year old £900 London Black Cab Taxi, with 350,000 miles on her clock, from MANNS at Saxham to Monte Carlo and back, in under 48 driving hours. The only spare part they will carry for the 2,000 mile round trip is a single fan belt!

Patrick’s wife, Karen, will fire the starting gun at Saxham on Friday 31st August, and the route will take them through 6 capital cities and 8 countries. They aim to arrive back in Bury St Edmunds during the morning of Sunday 2nd September, if all goes according to plan!!
