Chris Hopkinson's RAAM team looking for a crew member at short notice

You'll need a passport and an empty calendar for the rest of June...

How's your calendar looking for June? If it's wide open, and you fancy a bit of adventure, we might have a gig for you.

Chris Hopkinson is attempting to win the 3000-mile Race Across America (RAAM) in the solo category. It's a big ask and requires full-time support from a dedicated crew, but Hoppo has lost a crew member at the last minute and with departure from Terminal 5 of Heathrow on Friday he's looking to find a replacement. Sharpish.

If you're free from June 7th through till 27th, have a valid passport and are available to come to the US then team leader Martin Cox can promise you the trip of a lifetime. All expenses will be paid, too. You need to be sociable, patient and willing to work hard with very little sleep. It's a 24-hour operation.

Contact Martin via twitter @themartincox or via email martin [at] for more details.
