In commemoration, the HELP for HEROES 4×4 EUROPEAN RALLY 2014 followed the path and told the story of the Allied Invasion through Europe. The Allied Forces landed in France early on D-Day morning, 6th June 1944. The liberation of Europe had commenced. That history will unfold as your journey progresses; some parts of the route will also include areas of the ‘Western Front’ of WWI.
The event was flagged off by Simon Harmer, an injured Afghanistan Veteran, at 11:30am on Saturday 14th June 2014 at Littlecote House Hotel in North Wiltshire. After using byways on Salisbury Plain, and visiting the H4H ‘Tin Hut’, RAF Odiham & Southwick House, we then travelled to Portsmouth to embark on the ferry over to France. This 2000mile / 3200km expedition encompassing 7 European countries over a period of 13 days; concluding in Bavaria, Germany. This non-speed touring assembly, with a maximum entry of 45 teams, will be part military history tour (including museums etc), fun activities, part off-road driving and part club-type social, open to road-legal 4×4 vehicles. The whole focus is the raising of funds for the event’s chosen charity, HELP for HEROES.
