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.

BECCMARK Newsletter January 2018

BECCMARK Newsletter

Hello from the BECCMARK team. Well, the first month of the year has now gone and we look forward to February. Although this can be another cold month there is hope on the horizon of better things to come. The bulbs in the garden are coming through at an alarming rate and we have a few things to look forward to. Firstly there is Shove Tuesday (13th). Pancakes traditionally eaten on this day normally make a change from the diet food that we have all put ourselves on in January! Although normally eaten with lemon and sugar you can also make them savoury with a lovely cheese sauce and if you want something special Owen will have just the cheese for you. Of course our food stall holders can provide free range eggs either from Rosie or Karen and if you would prefer to keep them sweet also jams from Karen or Jan and Jean.

Following hot on the foot is Valentine’s Day. This is where the rest of our stall holders come in with beautiful cards and something special for the lady/man in your life. Better than a box of chocolates (the diet must go on after pancakes!).

Although not until March the 11th, Mothering Sunday is also on the horizon and I have always thought a present that has been carefully thought about is true to the day. We have such a diverse amount of gift ideas and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

BECCMARK will be at the Bourne End Library on the following dates during 2018 :-

February 10th
March 10th
April 14th
May 12th
June 9th
July 14th
