    Thame Driving Blog

    About 2 years ago I was approached by several customers about information that we know as "motor industry experts" but is unknown to the wider public.

    I thought that knowing what to do to pass your MOT or how to claim money back if you hit a pothole was easy information to find. Apparently not, and anayway when it comes to cars and motoring, what I have found is that there is alot of guff and untruths out there. The feeling I got was that people want to listen to people that they trust.

    So....I started writing articles about useful motoring information, amusing tales and local information. I now send this out to over 2,000 people on a monthly basis along with other motor related emails and generally get really good feedback. In fact what happens now is that my readers are now telling me what to write about.

    I hope you enjoy the articles and if there is a particular topic you want to know about then please let me know.


    On June 26, 1000 people will line up in Thame to take part in the town’s annual 10k.

    This year THAME Cars have entered a team of runners and we’re aiming to raise a bit of cash for the fantastic kids charity Thomley along the way

    (You’d like to sponsor us? How lovely! Here’s the JustGiving link :0)

    If you fancy a 10k but have missed the entry deadline or need a little longer to train, there are a few other great events within driving distance of Thame in the coming months.

    Here are a few of our favourites:

    1) The Buscot Run, Faringdon, July 3

    Buscot Park is an amazing place to visit, and is only about an hour away on the other side of Oxford.

    2) The Oxford Race For Life 10k, July 10

    Double the distance of the usual RFL events, but still exclusively for women, this 10k takes place in the inspiring University Parks in the heart of Oxford

    3) The Great Escape, Henley, July 30

    If you’re looking for the challenge of a 10k with the fun of a muddy obstacle course, this has to be a contender this Summer.

    You could be in the amazing private woodland estate in Culden Faw near Henley in under 40 minutes, and the theme of escaping and evading adds an unusual twist to the experience!

    4) Bearbrook 10k, August 14

    Just up the road 25 minutes towards Aylesbury you’ll find this fantastic event organised by a local running club.

    Plenty of time to train for it if you’re looking for a new challenge this Summer!
