How we desided on the team name
The name "Insanity Racing" is not referring to the nature of motor sport nor anyone involved.

The name came about because of how I felt when I first purchased the a car to get involved in Cross Country racing.  
Having been around off-road motor sport for many years as a spectator and marshal and being in and around the service areas helping out where ever possible, I decided I would like to give running and driving my own car a try. The only warning that I will give to any one else that is thinking of giving this a try is that it becomes addictive. It was while I was driving the UK motorway network with a large rented car transporter/trailer and, on my way to collect the first "Race car" with plenty of time to think , I started questioning what was I doing and why was I doing it? Was this a "mid-life crisis" or was I truly going insane? Thus the name for our new car became "Insanity", shortly thereafter we started calling our little group/team Insanity Racing.
How we got started.
Insanity Racing is a cross country (or off-road) race team originally started as an experiment! "to see if I liked driving in cross country motor sport events".
Having been on the sidelines for many years as a spectator, marshalling and assisting in the service areas, I had become familiar with the format and felt that I had started to get to know some of the people.
I purchased my first car a Land Rover, Discovery 1 and I went about preparing the car and  myself to enter a "British Cross Country Championship" event.
At the end of 2011, I entered my first event, joining the last event of the BCCC season at Nescliff, as a clubman entry with the help of a "brave" and experienced navigator.
This event proved to be a lot of fun and taught me a lot about both myself, the car and our capabilities. Sometimes exceeding both.
