ALL revved up to spread the word.

Rev Keith Morrison will be venturing out of the pulpit and into pits as part of a motor racing weekend.

He is one half of confirmed speed freaks Revelation Racing – when he is not preaching at St Augustine's, Ipswich.

He and Oxford vicar team-mate Rev Antony Feltham-White make no effort to hide their rather more sedate day jobs.

Revelation Racing competes in the MGCC Speed Championship this season, which opens at Goodwood on 24th May, where he will be hoping to beat the record that the team set last year when they took first and second place.

Keith is also entering the Gravity Racing Club Soapbox Challenge, an un-powered downhill event at The Goodwood Festival of Speed.

"Our race suits have black tops and white collars!" said

Keith. "Being so open has given us opportunities to talk to a number of

individuals about what we believe and about personal issues that concern them, and to me that is what ministry is all about.

"Apart from our love of racing and the thrill, Revelation Racing aims to actively seek opportunities to build bridges and share the Gospel by word and deed, through friendship, trust and integrity, as well as to be

accountable to God in all things on and off the track, seeking his will in all that we do."

Keith picked up a second place in a sprint at Goodwood race track last year, just pipped to the post by his colleague.

And the pair are hoping for a repeat this time around with their season starting in May at the same happy hunting ground.

But Keith will be hoping for God's Speed for what seems set to be an even more hair-raising event at Goodwood.
