Nicky and Rob due back this Sunday as their journey draws to a close!

On May 22nd 2011, Nicky West and Rob Stacey set off on their incredible journey to Asia Minor in a 50 year old Mini Minor.

With the aim of reaching the Great Pyramid of Giza, the couple's epic journey started at Hatfield House, Herts, on May 22nd and will end at the same venue in just 3 days time on June 26th.

Nicky and Rob are making the run to support the Willow Foundation charity which helps young people afflicted with terrible illnesses to live their dreams or to take a break from treatment to be with their loved ones. Nicky and Rob hope that their arduous journey, without a support crew, will raise £11,000 for the Willow foundation.

If you can support Nicky and Rob's lone expedition for Willow Foundation to raise essential funds for critically ill young people please do as they really need your help: or visit their website:

In 2012, Veloce will be publishing the book 'Mini Minor to Asia Minor' covering the journey in detail and packed with photos. 40% of the royalties earned by the book will go to the Willow Foundation.
