Scally Rally 2009: Jouhar’s back in his jalopy

 

Self-confessed petrol head Kelvin Jouhar, head of spot FX trading at Lloyds, is about to take part in the Scally Rally again, accompanied by his two daughters Victoria and Sarah (see his attempt a couple of years ago).


This year’s event sounds even better – a 2,300-mile journey from The Hague in the Netherlands to Bodo, inside the Arctic Circle in Norway. However, the rules state that the car used must be bought for less than £100.


Jouhar found what he was looking for on eBay. It’s a Ford Escort estate, which wasn’t a great car when it came off the Dagenham production line back in 1989. Although he says he has spent some money doing the car up and giving it a new paint job, and although he is handy with a spanner, I reckon he is going to struggle to make it so far.


I wish him all the best because it’s for a good cause. Jouhar is raising money (go to www.justgiving.com/JouharScallyRally09 to sponsor him) for St. Josephs Hospice in Hackney (www.stjh.org.uk).


As he is going to leave the car in Norway, I thought Jouhar should tap Alistair Darling and Peter Mandelson for the £2,000 scrappage the UK taxpayer will save, so I wrote to the government on his behalf.


 

I haven’t heard back from them and there’s no government donation on the Justgiving page yet.
