Post Video: Rupert Grint & Phelps twins participate in Barmy to Barcelona 2010 Wacky Rally

Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint and James and Oliver Phelps are currently in Barcelona, Spain, where Oliver, Rupert, and their friend Stuart Manison are participating in the Barmy to Barcelona 2010 Wacky Rally, proceeds from which will help benefit the RNLI, an organisation that provides "24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service around the coasts of the UK and RoI, as well as a seasonal lifeguard service on many of the busiest beaches in England and Wales." Oliver's rally team is "The salty sea dogs." The twins have previously given support to the cause the last couple years.

Photos of Rupert, James and Oliver taken this weekend were uploaded on the Rally's blog and can be found in high-resolution in our galleries.









UPDATE: New photos, a press release and a video have all emerged from the event. The photos can be found in hi-res here;









The press release can be read here. Potter fans who wish to donate can do so here. The video can be watched below;



Quote:
Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint, and brothers Oliver and James Phelps are rallying support for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) by taking part in the Barmy to Barcelona Wacky Rally this weekend.

Rupert, Oliver and James have really pushed the boat out with their 1992 Vauxhall Carlton rally car, decking it out in the familiar livery of an RNLI all-weather lifeboat.

Continuing with their maritime theme, the trio have entered the race as The Salty Sea Dogs and aim to raise awareness and funds for the charity that saves lives at sea.

Taking in the amazing Swiss Alps, rolling hills of Italy, French Riviera and the Spanish Catalan capital, The Salty Sea Dogs are hoping to propel their way to a competitive time in their first wacky rally.

Oliver Phelps comments:

‘The idea of a wacky rally seemed like quite good fun, while also being challenging. Having great admiration for the work of RNLI volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards, who often face challenging situations, it made sense to choose to support them and their lifesaving work. The distinctive RNLI colours also gave us great inspiration for the car.’

Oliver and brother James have supported the RNLI previously by taking part in the charity’s national fundraising day, SOS Day, which takes place annually on the last Friday in January.

Rupert Grint adds:

'We expect to “coast” to Barcelona ha ha. This is a brilliant way to see some great bits of Europe and even better that we can do it for a great cause. We’ve even got company in the form of a seagull perched on the boot of the car; we’re hoping it won’t need rescuing when the rally starts for real! The RNLI does a fantastic job but it’s only possible because of people’s donations. Help us to help the RNLI by going on to our fundraising page www.virginmoneygiving.com/thesaltyseadogs, it would be really appreciated!’

Aww, it's nice to see them dedicate their time RNLI. Good for them! Although, I must say how lucky they are to be able to go to Spain at the moment.

That's nice of them, spending their time by helping and rescuing people. What a great cause!

Sometimes I get jealous that they get to go to a lot of different countries while I'm stuck at home lol.

interesting how James is keeping his natural hair color while Oliver maintained his ginger dyed hair.

or is Oliver's part of the shoot not done yet?

and Rupert looks 12 again
