William Medcalf Vintage Bentley Restoration and Rally Preparation Classic Safari Rally

Keith Ashworth got out of bed one morning and decided what he really needed in life was a vintage Bentley. A visit to the Medcalf Collection resulted in the acquisition of a 4 litre then preparation by the Medcalf team for the Classic Safari Rally, a marathon of an event over 20 days and 8,000 kilometres around South Africa.
With big game and stunning vistas for company, Keith and wife Norah set off on an amazing adventure, and although Keith is more used to racing a Caterham – a car more different to rallying than a Bentley would be hard to imagine – that didn’t stop him claiming victory in his maiden event, ahead of a Dodge and a Lagonda on the podium.
