Engine
1.1 Litres of pure Fiat "FIRE" power. 60 BHP, supposedly.
Mileage
150,000 KM.
Gearbox
5 speed manual. 5th gear is a team effort...
Equipment
Electric windows, Central Locking, Sunroof. All temperamental.
Bodywork
Practical white paintwork (Dulux mould-resistant gloss), mirrored rear windows to reflect the heat, and a load of stickers. LX stripes retained.
Horn
Essential for warning camels of your presence it has a standard horn, plus 5 tunes (think Dukes of Hazzard), and 5 animal noises. Mooooo!
Electrics
Secondary fusebox powering the horn, 12v sockets and the stereo.
The Verdict?
We must be mad! We're doing this challenge in a tiny Italian car, and I'm sure the windows will stop working in the desert, probably in the closed position. And that's if it doesn't break down before then... So sponsor us now, your money is going to a good cause!

Team Flapjack are doing the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge in an attempt to raise £3000 for The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each day in the UK, 6 teenagers will find out they have cancer. Young people often get a raw deal, receiving hospital treatment in inappropriate facilities alongside children or elderly people. In many cases, cancer in teens is not picked up early enough as symptoms are dismissed as just being growing pains. Because teenagers are undergoing growth spurts, their cancers grow faster than other age groups and they can be at greater risk.
