We are all set for a group effort on Saturday at the Concours ..... not sure any dogs are involved - ironic that the weather is looking good so we won't need half hoods but it will add a nice extra activity into the morning and we will send the fastest time (with video evidence) to James
See you at the Ace Cafe and or Hare and Hounds in Osterley
Thank you Geoff for supporting the challenge and I look forward to seeing how you get on.
If anyone is in the midlands and wants to do the PCR Hoodie Challenge in a group.
Saturday 1st October 10am
The Red Lion
Hopefully see you there!
Had a right good laugh doing this today at home with the family watching/timing etc. After the 3rd timed run I was knackered! Go for it everybody, it's for a damned good cause........and next time it starts raining out of the blue, you'll be glad of the practice :-)

We did the PCR Hoodie challenge at the London Concours on Saturday- great fun and useful as well
The winner of the fastest half hood challenge on the day was Gary Jacobs in his 2001 K Series road sport. He won a £50 voucher for a brewery tour of the Griffin Brewery in Chiswick. Having discovered he had three water leaks and a non-operational fan he also had his car repaired by James Whiting and Bob Baker so a good day all round for Gary and he gets the chance to win the Bluetooth headset.....
James thanks for organising such a great challenge.
I have to admit that I thought putting the half hood on under a minute would be a doddle. Some goes later I changed my mind. Eventually I think I did it but the camera operator missed the start......... to avoid a divorce I calmly suggested another go.
Fabulous fun challenge for a great cause and I am now confident that I will just get wet not soaked when I next get caught in the rain.
Thank you for the donations so far and for the entries.
If you are thinking about entering please do it really is a lot of fun.
The PCR Hoodie Challenge came about because Jason says I'm slow at putting my half hood on. We have to have a race to see who is fastest then don't we? To make it more interesting we had a side bet of the camping fees for the night.
