TV camera operator Hazel Palmer is rallying to the cause... of raising money for disabled children.
Hazel, aged 33, of Canberra Close, St Albans, and two friends are taking part in the poor man's version of a Gumball rally across Europe.
The rules for Scumball 3000 specify the rally cars used must not cost more than £500 and they must cover around 5,000 miles although destinations are not revealed until the day of departure next Friday.
The trio are hoping local firms might like to buy advertising space on their old Audi 80 car and Hazel is going to dye her hair red and yellow to match its paintwork.
Competition must be in Hazel's blood as her father Michael Palmer, who died seven years ago after a stroke, was a former Olympic athlete.
Hazel, who has a 15-year old daughter, and her teammates will stay at camp sites en route.
