Team Johnny Bravo
Johnny Bravo was first created in 2012 before the Rally formally adopted the use of teams. It prides itself on running a tight ship, on great convoy discipline whilst having an absolutely hoofing time on the Rally!
Steve and Don Shaw are the Team Leaders of Group Bravo. Both are serving members of the military and have been involved with the Rally since 2012. Steve is one of the 3 Directors and Don is the HR Manager for the Rally. They are very much looking forward to leading the best group on the Rally once again! Their ‘steed’ for RfH 2018 is a tuned Porsche Cayman S, the ideal vehicle to tackle Swiss passes, Austrian mountain roads or the Autobahn.

Jon Palin - I have always loved cars and anything to do with them. I regularly attend various car events, shows and track days and, after steadily growing my small collection of cars over the years, I wanted to make sure I used them as much as possible and raise money for charity at the same time. I was introduced to the Rally for Heroes family and the amazing work they do helping service personnel and their families through the Great Northern Adventure around Scotland in 2015 and had such a great time and met some wonderful new friends I just had to join in the 2016 Rally. I thoroughly enjoyed that event so there was no question of me not joining in the 2018 Rally! I don’t have any connections myself with the Armed Forces but both my father and grandfather were in the Army and I think the work that SSAFA do for service personnel is superb therefore I am proud to support them.

Pilot Clive Ford, with Sue Ford as co-pilot, our second Rally for Heroes trip, the first being in 2014; we loved it so much we are back for more! Our car is a TVR Sagaris in cascade indigo, 400bhp waiting to be unleashed on some of the best roads Europe has to offer. Neither Sue nor I have served in the armed forces, however we both have close members of our families who have served their country and we are proud to support SSAFA who do so much fantastic work with our veterans and their families.
The TVR Sagaris
Pilot Steve Wilson and Co-pilot Tommy Wilson. Like the Fords, I did the Rally for the first time in 2014, in a TVR Chimaera, with my daughter Shannon. I made lots of new friends, and the whole experience was breath taking, amazing and well planned! (Apart from the sat-navs that year!)
2018, will see me return, this time with my son, who is younger, and a TVR 350, which is also younger!
However, being my 50th next year, I'm NOT getting any younger, but equally looking forward to the amazing Tarmac in Europe!
No military experience myself, although, my Shannon recently got engaged to a charming fella Blair, who she met on the 2014 Rally and now they are engaged to be married!
The TVR T350
Pilot, Steve Jones, co-pilot Lee Jones. We like loud cars, especially TVRs. I have PTSD and would like to help raise funds for SSAFA as a way of saying thanks for the help I`ve received. I am looking forward to the challenge of the 2018 Rally especially as I will be travelling in company with my sister and brother in law on the trip.
