Nah, my guess is "jack" might just like to stir things up. He's got 4 posts as of my writing, 3 in this thread and one RE: diesel boats designed by an aussie.
When Colin wakes up in a few hours he'll probably come on to back himself up.

...tell them what you're doing and ask if Colin Walker is part of their operation. If your phone numbers match, then that should tell you if he's legit.

If you're successful in helping these guys along on a badazz journey, more power to ya, Bro.

Good luck,
Brian

Yeah, just like our trips to the moon I suppose?
Maybe if you got off the forums they'd stop chasing you. Isn't it almost quitting time for you? Knock off early and get yourself a Fosters

My most recent information supports the fact that collin (earthrace) is legit. I am still waiting for a little more information, but things are checking out for him. Sorry for the confusion collin.

Default Earthrace clarification ...

Hello fellow enthusiasts and supporters,

I was just brought up to speed on the below thread and wanted to clear the waters for everyone. Colin Walker is a legitimate supporter of the Earthrace cause. As some of you may know we plan on a promotional tour in Europe and Asia after the world record attempt and we are fostering relationships around the globe. Colin has sourced fuel for Earthrace in India and has indirectly helped us secure fuel for Oman, 2 of the most difficult fuel stops logistically and financially.

Please treat Colin as an equal member of this forum, he is doing his best, as many Earthrace supporters around the globe, to be a more significant contributor to the cause. If there was a misunderstanding on the legitimacy of his request and approach to the forum, let's squelch that now and work together to support a great cause.

If I have not introduced myslef properly on previous Earthrace threads via offshoreonly.com, please allow me to do so. My name is David Perez and I am a ground crew member for the Earthrace world record attempt responsible for race leg sponsorship. I have been supporting the project since October of 2006 and own the 2007 FlexFuel Chevy Tahoe that you may have seen dressed from roof to rocker panel in custom Earthrace graphics. I can't post pics on this forum yet, but you can see some photos via myspace ... and you don't have to tell me, I know it's lame ;-):

You can also see my Earthrace team member profile here:

http://earthrace.net/index.php?section=84

To the good stuff ... Earthrace is is need of support. As Colin mentioned, our fuel for the race was arranged many months ago and a key sponsor unfortunately was unable to continue their support for Earthrace due to financial challenges within their company. We appreciate all that they have done for the cause and look forward to a possible partnership in the future. No worries, these things happen. With the millions in sponsorship and support already secured the past few years, not starting the race was not an option, we must continue with our goal and fulfill our commitments ... it is integrity and determination that drives Earthrace. The team we have is competent and resourceful despite all of using being unpaid volunteers. In less than 2 months we secured enough financial support and sponsorships to start the first 3 legs of the race and have been overcoming obstacles ever since to contunue in our quest.

The unfortunate events of recent have hit the bank account hard, thus the financial burden has increased at a rate faster that our ability to raise continued funds, thus our predicament. Simply, we need financial support to pay for unsponsored fuel in Koror, $15K woth, or Earthrace will be stuck there after engine repairs. With an estimated departure of Sunday April 29th, that leaves us only a few days to get back on track.

I am authorizing 50% off the requested race leg sponsorship right now. That's only U$5,000 per person for an opportunity of a lifetime ! With this offer the commission opportunity can no longer be supported. Note sponsorship specifics in the below link:

http://earthrace.helloworld.co.nz/index.php?section=63

With the next 5 legs needing 2 sponsored crew each, that will bring in $50K and give us the boost we need to finish this race, and most importantly, bring much needed awareness to the viability of renewable fuels.

All of the offshoreonly.com pollulation has an opportunity to make world record history and be a part of an amazing journey and documentary series being recorded in High Definition ! All you have to do is get involved and focus on all that is to gain from such an experience before the opportunity is gone.

Please reach me if you like to discuss the project, sponsorship or just have a discussion, we welcome all. I await your response with much anticipation.

Cheers,

David Perez
