Porsche Budgeteers break £6k barrier

After five days on the road taking part in the REAL Rally, Leicester-based motor claims consultants, Industry Insights – AKA the Porsche Budgeteers – have raised more than £6,000 for charity.

Completing almost 800 miles in a £999 1984 Porsche 928 for the REAL Rally in Partnership with AutoRaise Connected Solutions has raised £6,248 to date – beating its target of £5,000.

Steve Thompson, Industry Insights’ managing director, and co-pilot, Justin Bown, lined-up with 25 other entrants (20 from the bodyshop industry) for the three-day European Charity Challenge, driving from Calais to Bruges in Belgium before heading off to Le Touquet-Paris-Plage in France then back to the UK.

The Porsche Budgeteers experienced two ‘major’ fuel tank related incidents, one ‘noteable’ breakdown, shot 15 Facebook Live videos and had one ‘hairy’ moment involving a cracked dashboard.
