Puff passes muster

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Two of the orig­i­nal mem­bers of an allfe­male team that com­pleted the Daily Mail Lon­don-Mex­ico World Cup Rally in 1970 have re-run the first stage.

Team Puff, com­pris­ing Bron Bur­rell, Tina Ker­ridge-Reynolds, new re­cruit Seren Whyte and the 1970 Austin Maxi, af­fec­tion­ately named Puff the Magic Wagon, com­pleted the HERO Lon­donLis­boa Clas­sic Rally, cov­er­ing 2000 miles around Eng­land, France, Spain and Por­tu­gal over the nine-day event.

They fin­ished third in class and 39th over­all – out of more than 80 starters.

Bron Bur­rell says: ‘Against all the odds, this lit­tle car with its in­cred­i­ble crew fi­nally crossed the fin­ish line In Por­tu­gal for the sec­ond time in 47 years. It was very emo­tional.’
