We are very excited here at Sullivan’s Heroes about Abi & Ben’s Rust 2 Rome Challenge this July. Abi Quinn, who is Sullivan’s cousin, and Ben Blackmar will be setting off from Edinburgh on 1st July 2018 – driving all the way from Scotland to Rome in just 10 days – stopping off briefly at some rather beautiful landmarks on the way.
The car they will be taking on this 4,500 mile journey through Europe has been purchased for the specified under £500 amount (hence the ‘rust’ element of the challenge!) and Abi and Ben have wrapped this in the unique light blue colour and purple spots of Monsters Inc.’s ‘Sullivan’.
The challenging route features countless hairpin bends and long stretches of twisting roads, as seen in the famed James Bond and Italian Job movies, including the Col de Turini high mountain pass in the Alps, a renowned stage in the Monte Carlo Rally.
All funds raised through Abi and Ben’s Rust2Rome challenge will be used towards home adaptation grants for the disabled children Sullivan’s Heroes is supporting. We are extremely grateful to Abi and Ben for taking part in this epic event, and wish them all the best for their route to reach the Roman Coliseum safely, and hopefully without breakdowns!
The whole event will be filmed and posted on Rust2Rome's Facebook page so you will be able to track the 'SullyWagon' team – Number 37 – on their exciting journey across Europe. Plus, follow Abi & Ben’s personal Rust 2 Rome blog for daily updates.
