men united rally cars

Classic car enthusiasts, rally drivers, vintage car lovers, motor heads: help us drive forward the issue of prostate cancer.

And we're off again! E-type Club Round Britain Coastal Drive

In 2016 the E- type owners club embarked on their first Round Britain Coastal Drive raising over £60,000 for Prostate Cancer UK. In 2017 the XK owners club responded to this by doing their own Round Britain Coastal Drive, raising over £70,000! Not to be defeated the E-type owners club have once again signed up to cruise the coastline of Britain for Prostate Cancer UK in September 2018 and we are absolutely delighted! This year the drive starts and finishes in Tenby in Wales, progressing North through Scotland before covering the South West coastline, arriving back in Tenby 19 days later where a deserved rest will be had by all!

 

With over £130,000 raised so far, the RBCD (as it is now known) has been a wonderful team effort with a fabulous spirit of camaraderie. Our crews, our sponsors, our VIPs, my hard-working colleagues and the media have all pulled together, it’s great to use in this constructive way the cars we are fortunate to own. Everyone wins.

- Phillip Porter Founder of the E-Type and XK RBCD

Romsey Boxing Day classic car and bike meet 2017

Steve Biddlecombe with celebrity chef and classic car owner James Martin

Steve Biddlecombe (pictured above with celebrity chef and classic car owner James Martin) has been raising funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK for the past 10 years, totalling an incredible £23,140.55 to date.

The Romsey Boxing Day Classic Motor Meet is a fantastic chance to see some of the best pre-1976 cars and bikes in Britain. Thanks to the success of the meet, Steve hasn't had a proper Christmas in 17 years! But for Steve, it's all worth it to bring a holiday treat to motor enthusiasts from all over the South. Steve chose to support Prostate Cancer UK with this event 11 years ago, and he’s been helping to beat prostate cancer ever since.

The first year I chose to collect for Prostate Cancer UK, the collection total rose dramatically: the cause obviously resonated with the motoring audience. This, coupled with the charity being such a nice bunch to work with, has made Prostate Cancer UK my sole choice of charity since 2007. In a twist of irony, just last year my own father was diagnosed with prostate cancer, making the years of collecting seem yet more worthwhile.

Gordon Luther Nick Porsche Silverstone

After undergoing successful treatment for prostate cancer. Gordon Weston decided it was time to reignite his driving career, which took a long pit stop once he became a family man. With the help of his now renovated Porsche S24, Gordon's quest is simple: race his car and raise.

I was very lucky - I got an early diagnosis, hopefully by racing this car, I can make more men aware of prostate cancer.
