If you have been to any of the Rugby matches earlier this year you may have seen the BMW X5 Sweet Chariot on display.
BMW Proud Partners of England's Rugby At the Six Nations matches earlier there were sound booths where fans were encouraged to sing "Swing Low Sweet Chariot" in support of the England team
Swing Low Sweet Chariot........ Occasionally the fans were joined by players
Comin' for to carry me home..... After singing their hearts out and having a bit of a laugh, the fans received a souvenir photo and their recording was entered into the BMW Chariots competition.
The prize...to sing the England team onto the pitch during the world cup warm up game with Ireland.
Ben - judging the vocal talent Ben Kay the former England second row player was involved in the selection of the lucky winners.
Hosting the winners at Pennyhill Park
Ben also hosted the winners on the 16th august when they were invited to Pennyhill Park; the home and training ground for the England Team during the World Cup
The winners enjoyed a tour of the state of art training facilities, lunch and a Q&A session with England Captain - Chris Robshaw, Centre - Bradley Barritt and Prop - Joe Marler.

I'm sending my best wishes to "the pregnant chariot" for the safe delivery of that rugby ball that she clearly tucked up her lovely vintage rugby top!
Rugby baby! It's been my pleasure to be involved in the recording of the chariots journey, I think its safe to say they've had a blast!
