How we desided on the team name
First, 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 after I purchased a car to get involved in Cross Country motor racing.
Having been around off-road & Cross Country 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. 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.
The only warning that I will give at this stage to any one else that is thinking of giving this a try is that it becomes addictive.
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 I felt I had become familiar with the format and 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.
Later we built a new car.
This is us at the 2018 Welsh Hill Rally, held on a very hot weekend at Walters Area south Wales.
