EBC aid Viking Warriors charity event with Landrover brakes

EBC Brakes are honoured to be assisting this year’s Viking Warriors Odyssey to Dakar charity event with brakes for their Landrover, to cover an incredible 15,000 miles. The organiser of the event, Dudley Rae, will be travelling through 24 countries from the extremes of the Arctic Circle down through the African deserts in order to raise awareness and money for several charities including the Torbay Holiday Helpers Network (providing holidays for sick children and their families), The Royal Marines Association (providing direct support for our veterans), Think Amy – The Drive Safe for Life Education Programme with other charities to be added in the near future. The exciting journey will begin for the Viking Warriors on 17th June 2017.

Dudley Rae has decided to push himself even further this year after the success of last year’s Motoscape Car Rally when he travelled through 12 different countries from Torquay, UK ending in Prague, encompassing an outstanding distance of over 3000 miles there and back. Dudley took two professional drivers with him in his car that cost no more that £300 which EBC and other supporting companies donated parts for. This is an incredible feat for Dudley as he is registered blind with a severe sight impairment following complications from two brain tumours and he does all the navigation himself.


Here are a few pictures of the brakes EBC sent suitable for the Landrover including Bluestuff NDX brake pads and premium brake disc rotors.
