A must have Peugeot 205 and form a group of three. This is already the starting point for the adventure Invasion of Europacultural and solidarity tour of Europe 10,000 kilometers through 20 countries in 22 days.

Acts of solidarity

On board the Peugeot 205, the crew rediscovered Europe while carrying out acts of solidarity. It has been since 2017 that the idea has been floating around in his head Thomas Cabaret. “I bought a 1994 Peugeot 205 for less than €350. Today, I have plunged it into the 21st century by modernizing it and providing it with all the necessary equipment for such a raid”, begins Thomas Cabaret. The latter buys his car in 205 and quickly creates a partnership: Sarth’Raid, which can be followed on social networks .

“I bought this car with the purpose of participating in this raid. It was important for me to combine challenges with humanitarian reasons. With the distribution of 70 kg of school supplies in 20 countries, the Europ Raid is what I wanted. »

Build a team

At first, Thomas did not have a team to share this project with. And then, a few years later, it was natural that he tried the challenge with his girlfriend Mathilde Beury and one of his friends Josselin Cabaret. “If we all carry, Josselin and I, the same name, we don’t have to come from the same family. I’m very happy to leave with him and Mathilde, it’s my Dream Team. Literally translated as a dream team!

To participate in the Europ Invasion, it is necessary to calculate a budget of 7000 €. Three friends are not discouraged and run a fundraiser, organize a sale. They were also able to count on almost €2,500 worth of fully funded mechanical parts.
