Knight Riders – White Hat Rally 2017

This year our fun packed motoring adventure “Knight Riders – Knights of the Roundabout” goes to Dorset and takes on a chivalric theme to raise funds to support Barnardo’s in their work with vulnerable children. White Hat Rally helps to protect vulnerable children in the UK by supporting carefully selected charities. Our concern is particularly focused around the threat presented by the Internet and other modern technologies that have placed children at an increased risk of abuse. While the Internet and mobile communications have brought many benefits to modern society, they also present many new threats. Information Security specialists make a huge difference to businesses, helping to reduce risk, but while businesses are well protected, children aren’t. We are committed to supporting charities that give vulnerable children somewhere to turn for help, actively reduce risk, support the victims of abuse, stop cruelty to children and restore their confidence in society.

My team will be paying its own way in fuel, accommodation and beer so every single penny you donate will go directly to Barnardo’s. Please give generously at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/knightmares

Peter Bassill: Quick Fire Interview

The Hedgehog Security team spoke with CEO Peter Bassill to get his thoughts on the upcoming White Hat Rally and how he’s preparing for it:

What made you want to get involved with the White Hat Rally?

The children 

What aspect of the White Hat Rally are you looking forward to the most?

The drive 

How do you think you’ll fare with the clue-deciphering part of the rally?

We’re a husband and wife team, we will end up lost and in a pub. 

Can you tell us a bit about the car you’ll be driving?

Mixie is a race prepared MX5, built in 2000. She is a great little car but not the most comfortable thing to drive over distance.

What can you tell us about your team and how they’re preparing for the rally?

We have checked out all the menus of the pubs in the area and are compiling a list of places for lunch.

What sparked your passion for racing?

I don’t know. I’ve been racing for a while

What has been your favourite moment in motor racing so far?

Driving the Audi R8 LMS around Donnington national circuit. It was an extremely powerful car and I culled a clear 14 seconds from my previous best on the circuit.

Where is your favourite race circuit?

Brands Hatch, the Indy circuit mind. For such a small circuit, there is only really one straight and even that isn’t exactly straight. My personal best 50.22 seconds.
