Countdown to the last Twin Town

Are you revving up yet?

This time next year a procession of 100 cars will have left beautiful Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire and will be making its way to Le Touquet in France for a weekend of driving challenges and partying. All to help SpecialEffect bring fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities.

That’s right, the last ever Twin Town Challenge will be underway and the bi-annual event that has provided much-needed income since 2014 looks like it’ll be the biggest, best and loudest yet. Places for this flagship event are going faster than a souped-up Lamborghini already and you’ll need to get into gear if you’d like to secure a place for your team.

Each Twin Town event has carried a theme. In past years we’ve seen participants dress up as characters from video games and movies… from the Mario Brothers in the Kart to Travis Bickle in his New York Taxi (yep, that was quite scary). Twin Town 2020 is no different as we embrace The Battle of the Bands. Oh yes! We suspect we'll be seeing KISS, ZZ Top and maybe even the Sex Pistols amusing (and probably bemusing) the good people of the usually quiet, beautiful seaside town of Le Touquet over the early-May Bank Holiday weekend.

The event organiser, Oxfordshire businessman Brendon Cross of STL Communications, has taken the handbrake off for Twin Town 2020. Since the event began it has raised almost £850,000 for the work of SpecialEffect. Brendon wants to smash the £1 million raised and he’s ready to put the pedal to the metal to achieve it.

"Twin Town 2020 is going to be big, colourful and loud," he said. "But most of all it’s going to be a huge amount of fun whilst raising money for a cause we all hold very dear. Let’s do this!"

And if you can’t be involved, let us know which bands you’d like to see go to Le Touquet by tweeting us #TwinTown20 followed by the band name!
