A long serving member of our team joined a new team this year, Team GB!

Andrew Bell a salesman from Lancaster Toyota Wearside qualified in his age group to take part in the European Duathlon Championships in Germany. On the 16th April 2016 Andrew proudly put on his Great Britain team kit and took part in a 10km run followed by a 40km bike ride followed by another 5km run.

Described as a flat windy course where all four seasons were experienced in one day Andrew did himself proud finishing 150th out of 250 elite athletes. All of the travel arrangements, accommodation, race entry and other costs had to be self funded so Andrew was helped on his way with a £1000 joint sponsorship from Toyota Wearside and Toyota Great Britain themselves.

Congratulations to him on a fantastic achievement we are all very proud!
