Mini Sport customer Kevin Lower is soon to turn 50 and to celebrate the event he will be entering and participating in 50 motorsport events, ranging from sprints and hillclimbs to auto-tests. He is calling this Fifty@50.

The 50 events will be spread out over a year between 4th March 2011 and 3rd March 2012. There is obviously some chance that a few events will be cancelled but Kevin has already thought of this and is prepared to enter some of the rallies or car trials that he has lined up, just in case.

The other variable will be the cars he is driving. Hopefully none of these will break down, but he has a couple Ford Ka’s waiting in the wings. However the plan is to compete in all the events using his Ford Escort RS2000, Mini MOKE and Mini Saloon.

This marathon of events is not just a mid-life crisis though, as it is all for a good cause, Demelza Hospice Care for Children, a charity very close to Kevins heart. This is a huge challenge meaning Mr Lower will have to compete nearly once a week for a whole year whilst maintaining his vehicles to the National ‘B’ or Clubsport level.

He is hoping to raise £5,000 and so far is nearly half way there. Please help him achieve his goal and donate.
