SIX days or more of The Turkey Trot might not sound appealing but rallying father and son Reg and Jack Vincent are having a great time.

The pair are now on their way home from the charity event on behalf of Help for Heroes. Drivers from across the UK set off from Headley Court rehabilitation centre and making their way to Kalkan in Turkey in just three days.

Amazingly, just six months ago Reg - husband of Actavis managing director Sara Vincent - broke his neck in an accident on his farm but went on to make an almost total recovery.

Just three months after his accident, he was already back racing classic motorbikes!
