You probably arrived here from the AO home page, this is because I announced recently that I am going to be running in the "Mascot Grand Nationa"l in a huge Owl suit which we have named as "Owlfa the Owl".
So why am I doing this?
There are many ways that, as Alfisti, we can celebrate 100 glorious years of technical brilliance, we could buy a new model, make that drive to Italy, perhaps even buy a premio membership to the AO club.
I thought long and hard about this, what could I do to celebrate this milestone? How could I best represent my fellow drivers, to wipe that smirk off other marque’s drivers faces? Could I achieve all this and help others at the same time?
Countrymen, gather round, tell your friends and watch in awe, as an over weight, middle aged idiot, pulls on a giant Owl costume and attempts to run for his life as “Owlfa the owl” on October 3rd, 2010 at Huntingdon racecourse in the official Mascot Grand National.
(To be aired on Sky sports and covered throughout the national press)
That’s right, in aid of The Hawk Conservancy Trust, Andover, I will be battling against around 70 other mascots to win the coveted National.
So how can you help this courageous, valiant and frankly idiotic adventure?
Firstly, you could visit www.justgiving.com/owlman
and give a couple of quid to such a great cause. Also, imagine the sight of a convoy of Alfa’s arriving in a show of strength at Huntingdon racecourse, engines roaring, paintwork shining, horns blasting, as we show the world that there’s more to a 100th birthday than a birthday card from a posh corgi lover.
Bring your cars, your family, your friends but above all….. bring cake (I’m a big bloke remember so need to keep up my winter weight!)
