Bourne End Documentary Star In “The Road To Gymkhana” Which Premieres on 27th March

Adam Elder has cars in his blood or to be more exact….  fast cars. Growing up in Bourne End, many of us know Adam & would certainly agree he was born to do this.

You may have heard of drifting…. well Gymkhana GRiD involves a lot of “donuts”, tyre smoke & powerslides making it an exciting sport to follow so the documentary “The Road To Gymkhana”  which premieres on 27th March, could be an interesting film for you to watch. Four big names in the Gymkhana Grid world… Ken Block, Petter Solberg, Oliver Solberg & Shane Lynch (THE Shane Lynch of Boyzone), follow Adam & 5 other drivers during their everyday lives as well as their racing careers.  

The film highlights how young men who work fulltime in other industries, can race against the world’s best without coming from a wealthy & privileged  background.  The film crews followed Adam to work, to the garage where Tony Elder, his Dad helps with the mechanics & to his home, interviewing the family who have supported him in many different ways for the past 4 years.

The film details how with focus, determination & a lot of hard work, you can achieve success. It shows the difference between Adam who puts every spare minute & penny into working towards his success compared to young men who are on million pound budgets. Adam has managed to achieve a standard in 4 years that usually takes others 10 years. Adam said “I have to make great sacrifices in order to follow my dream but it’s all worth it although I couldn’t do it without the huge support I receive from my family & fiancé, Lindsay.”

In the days after the premiere he has been invited to appear on a radio show, photo shoots & there is a possible breakfast TV interview. Adam also has 2 businesses to help financially, he has a recovery vehicle & is on call for breakdowns & has just become a UK distributor for Zestino Tyres who are also one of his sponsors. Sponsors are incredibly hard to get but he has many including Competition Clutch, EBC Brakes, Everything Drift, Rock Tech Wrapping & Funk Motor Sport amongst others, not forgetting Bourne End Garages.

Competing in over 80 small races & 4 big events in-order to get this far, his first “big” event was Gymkhana Grid in Madrid, a European Event & more recently Gymkhana Grid in South Africa which was televised by Sky TV in December. When I asked what other racing interests him, he said he would love to compete in World Rally Cross events one day.

This all came about after a serious brush with the law over a driving incident made Adam stop & think about how he could channel his passion. After following another local man, Luke Woodham who Adam now often competes against, he realised this could be the ideal way to turn his passion into a legal career. Hard work & many of thousands of pounds later, here he is…. waiting to hear if he qualifies for the World Finals in South Africa later this year.

“The Road To Gymkhana” will become available shortly after the premiere on Amazon Prime. If you fancy watching Adam race, he will be competing in Coventry Motofest on 2nd & 3rd June 2018 taking place in Coventry city centre.

 

To follow Adam or if you are interested in Zestino Tyres you can contact him via his Facebook page.

Read About Gill’s Memories of Bourne End, 60 years Ago.

Gill Hoare has kindly written a glimpse into her memories of the village when she was a child, around 60 years ago.

Thankyou Gill, I know people will enjoy the read.

Take a walk with me to remember (or, for the new Bourne Enders, to find out) exactly how the village used to look some 60 odd years ago, who were the main players, and just where all the shops were and how the village worked!

Let us start on the Marlow Road at the bottom of Blind Lane where Cressington Place Estate is built – much to the horror of villagers – on The Water Cress Beds – the ever gurgling and bubbling beds that had been there goodness know how long.

The garage is a newish acquisition – the “new build” office block was home to a Solicitors office and others but no longer around. The new retirement complex seems to be where both the Billinghursts Builders yard and the Billinghurst family home were.

The new Co-op on the corner replaced Mr Whites “Corner Shop” selling ice cream, fizzy pop, sweets etc. Sundays in the summer was not complete without a block of vanilla ice cream for pudding – it used to be my task to go and buy it (for 1/-, 5 pence in today’s money) just before the Sunday lunch was served as not many people had a fridge in those days! The ice cream was indeed a treat and always looked forward to on a Sunday! I remember getting into trouble one day while on the ice cream run – on the way home clutching the ice cream, I met a boy who I got talking to for rather longer than I should, and on arriving home clutching a sodden mass found my lunch, cold, on the table and no one talking to me as the pudding was ruined!!
