Misson to Mexico 2020

 

Introducing Puff the Magic Wagon and her inspiring Speed Queens.

 

Back in 1969 British Leyland launched the Austin Maxi. 

 

One of these cars, endearingly called Puff The Magic Wagon to help her fly, was prepared and driven by three pioneering women of their time, Tish Ozanne, Katrina Kerridge and Bron Burrell.

 

This exceptional female team set off on arguably one of the most gruelling rally of all time, The 1970 World Cup Rally from London to Mexico. Puff and her Speed Queens were forced to retire in South America so never reached their final destination.


Nearly 50 years on, this little car with a big history and two of her original Speed Queens have

been reunited and are rallying again.

 

WIth their sights firmly set on 2020, the dream team are focused on repeating the journey and finally completing this iconic rally from London to Mexico and finishing what they started 50 years ago, in their original car!

 

We are now planning this adventure and we are looking for partners and people who share our passions.

 

If you are interested in supporting Puff and her crew please drop us a line.

 

We will be keeping you posted as the plans come together so follow us on
