The Oakhaven Oil Spy Run

On 30 September 2012 50 cars will be leaving Efford Park in Lymington for the first Oakhaven Oil Spy Run, a Scatter Rally to raise awareness of Oakhaven Hospice.

Oakhaven Hospice is an independent charity and the key provider of specialist palliative care (hospice care) in the New Forest. Oakhaven serves the community of The New Forest and Waterside with a population of 100,000, caring for patients with life limiting illnesses and their families. The hospice has an active 10 bed In-Patient Unit, Day Hospice and a team of Clinical Nurse Specialists working in partnership with the Primary Care Team. It costs £3.5m a year to keep Oakhaven running, and this event is not about raising money, it is about raising awareness of what Oakhaven does and the need to support it. www.oakhavenhospice.co.uk

Oil Spy is a unique, easy to handle oil test kit that will identify specific oil problems and thereby common engine defects in about 15 minutes, giving the earliest warning of problems that could affect the weakest link in the engine… the oil. One drip of warm dipstick oil on our special pad will identify deficiencies and root causes that could otherwise cause major engine failure.

Anyone who is a car enthusiast, would like to experience a fun day out and support our local hospice is welcome to enter this event. We will be meeting at Efford Park at 10.00 am with the first car leaving at 11.00 am. Driver and navigator (and possibly other passengers in the car) will be collecting clues and we all will meet for lunch. After that the search continues! A winner will be crowned once all cars have arrived at Lymington Town Sailing Club after 16.00 pm. This adventure is not about speed as we will be well within the national speed limits, it is about navigation, communication and inclusivity.

Please visit our special event website www.oakhavenoilspyrun.com where you can sign up, load up a photo of your motor (all cars are admitted, not only classic cars) and find out more.

OIL SPY IN PARIS

Last Friday our team visited RETROMOBILE, one of the biggest and famous classic car show.

9 hours of total immersion in the amazing world of cars and motorbikes.

It was a fantastic occasion for us to be able to thank personally French journalists who published articles in well regarded magazines.

We also had the opportunity to meet members of prestigious federations and clubs like the FFVE (French federation of classic cars) and the ASA ACO Paris (responsible for organizing events at Le Mans) to name but a few.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2010

As it happens we have just recently been sent some snaps dating back to the beginning of July this year. OIL SPY had a stand at Goodwood Festival of Speed which was a very successful long weekend for us. We met with interesting people and were able to spread the word about OIL SPY even further.

Our distinctive flag in the early morning breeze.

The photo was taken by Ian Lambot whom you might recognise from the GRRC yearbooks (1998 – 2010) or the Macao Grand Prix: 50 Years of Motor Sport.
