Mobile Industry represented at the Scally Rally

Come across the Scally Rally?

It’s the ultimate banger rally! Instead of needing a heavily customised £150k Bentley Continental GT to enter, the the Scally Rally requires you to enter with a car that you bought for under £100.

We — that is, the mobile industry — are being represented in the race by Mike Taylor, Head of Media and Entertainment for mobile aggregator WIN Plc.

Here’s Mike:

You may or may not know that I have signed up to take part in this year’s “Scally Rally – Road to Rimini” in a few weeks time, which is essentially a (very) poor man’s Gumball Rally, whereby 100 teams drive from Calais to Rimini over 4 days as a novel way of raising awareness and funds for charity… in a car that cost £100 when purchased!

We soon discovered that £100 on ebay buys you very little that actually works, so we ended up buying a complete non runner and spent the next few months underneath it re-attaching it’s vital organs.

Please have a look at the blogs on our website www.myspace.com/woodyhoodies for photos of what we created and fundraising updates.

It’s all for good causes too. Mike continues:

I am therefore unashamedly appealing for donations to our chosen charity, Adoption UK, a support agency for adoptive children and parents. They say charity starts at home, and seeing as most of us spend more time at work than at home, I thought this seemed a logical place to start!

The easiest way to donate is to visit our just giving page at www.justgiving.com/woodyhoodies

Mike, we’ll shortly be posting a Mobile Industry Review donation.

Don’t come back without lots of photos… and can we get a live text update service please?

    Live text update? Pah – so Mobile 1.0.

    Get them to run Nokia Sportstracker or some other real-time internet-connected GPS app so sponsors can track their progress, photo-blogging all the way. Will be easy in a car with a charger.

    ….not sure how prepay data goes in the People's Republic though…
