The first free@last Oddball event in 2014 was a hoot, 9 cars, around 40 people, some seriously good fancy dress, 2 days of fun and mayhem, a little bit of skulduggery, and a whole bucket load of laughs all in aid of a fantastic cause… what could be better… The 2018 Oddball run was even bigger and now, our 2022 Oddball will be a bigger and better affair if that is possible. It’s a 2-day social motoring event with fun challenges, optional speed tests, overnight stay, an awards ‘do’ and it’s all to raise lots of money for a great cause.
All participants are expected to have fun, lots of fun. Fancy dress for the crew is compulsory, and feel free to use a car to match your fancy dress theme too. Take a look at the previous years’ gallery to get an idea of what it is like.
Any vehicle which is taxed, MOT tested and insured is eligible. It can be an old banger which you paint up for the event, or your everyday road car. Or something more unusual…
Starting in Birmingham and finishing back in Birmingham the following evening for the Prize Giving, where family and friends are welcome to celebrate with us.
This year’s great cause is free@last’s Vehicle Challenge, raising funds to buy a new minibus to take the kids to different weekly sports venues. Please take a moment to look at the great work they do at www.freeatlast.st
The event is limited to 20 vehicles, so reserve your place now to avoid disappointment. Cars will carry a competition number to identify them to the event officials. You may request your “lucky number” when registering and if it’s still available we will allocate it to you.
The Clock Is Ticking, So Hurry Up
OK, so you’re up for the challenge, here’s the basics of what you need to do, step by step.
