Hello CTzens! As you’re all probably aware, after the #CTMeet2016, poor old Phil is still sitting alone and helpless in Germany. Well, after me and my friend Nico had such an epic time traveling across 4 countries just to meet the CT Lads, Boosted Borris, SeenThroughGlass (Sam), and a whole bunch of awesome CarThrottle users from all across Europe, we have decided to try to help Alex out!

What's the plan?

Well, it’s actually rather simple in theory; they plan on rescuing Phil, by driving back to Germany, and putting Phil on a trailer. Sounds simple, right? Well, not quite. Trailers cost money, not a lot of money, but, they still cost bit. The same goes for all the things that go with a trip like this, such as fuel, accommodation, tolls, and so on.

That’s where you CTzens come in.

How can you help?

Look at that happy little face!

‘What can I do to help!?’ I hear you cry. Well, as explained above, these things cost money, so we need you guys to help raise that money. Don’t be alarmed though! You don’t have to give all your money that you’ve saved for your project car! If you head on over to our Indigogo Campaign , you’ll see that anything from as little as £2 will make all the difference, and any contribution will get you some awesome CarThottle perks and prizes :)

What if we raise more than the £500 target?

If we raise more than our goal of £500, we will donate any extra funds that you guys raise to the Make A Wish Foundation. They are a pretty awesome cause, that aim to help unwell children have awesome days out, including meeting stars, and getting passenger rides in epic cars, as a couple of examples.

Does Alex and CarThrottle know about our plan?

Yes! We had a meeting with them the other day, so they were aware of our plans, and to make sure they were happy to give us the green light. They loved it so much that they suggested that we join them on their journey, and also some awesome perks that were even more amazing than we had originally planned!
The whole trip will be filmed and documented by CarThrottle, as part of the #ProjectMX5 series on YouTube.

The campaign is being organised by myself and Nico, with the kind permission and support of Car Throttle, who have agreed to provide some great perks for everyone who supports the campaign.

Why are we doing this campaign?

He misses you too Phil :(

As we said before we enjoyed driving to Germany so much to hang out with some fantastic people, and we felt like giving something back to CarThrottle for planning such an amazing event.
Not only that, but it’s the spirit of a Petrolhead, Car Guy/Girl, and CTzen to come together and help others in need.

So please, if you have any spare money, even if it’s only £1, think about poor little Phil, and show your support. #SavePhil
