BXCC worth the weight for Howse

James Howse will be navigating in the Britpart BXCC this season after winning a weight loss bet!

Driver Rod Parker made the bet with Howse, the outcome being that if Howse could lose over half his body weight then he could race in Parker's Gwalia Healthcare-backed Milner R5. 

Inspired by the challenge Howse embarked on his weight loss plan and successfully achieved his target. He will therefore be on the start line of BXCC round 1 in June.

Howse commented: "I'm really looking forward to racing this season, Rod's bet gave me the incentive to shift some weight. I could not have fitted into the Milner before!"
