About us

Torque Events provide the ultimate driving events and tours across the UK and Europe, combining the best hotels, roads, and destinations, delivered with military precision and flair.

Two of our Directors Benn Laidler MBE and Steve Shaw MA, FCILT, CMCIPD, who are both ex-serving members of HM Forces, have over 15 years experience of organising driving events and tours.

For the last 10 years, they have organised the legendary charity driving event Rally for Heroes, which took place across the UK and mainland Europe, raising over three quarters of a million pounds for many charities supporting military personnel over that time.

In 2022, Rally for Heroes evolved into The Driving Force for SSAFA delivered through Torque Events and powered by Company X Consulting Ltd.

Company X Consulting Ltd focus in embedding consultancy specialists to provide technical advice to Government and Industry and was founded by Directors David Coffey, Kevin Kerr and Kevin Smith who are all ex-serving members of HM Forces.

Company X Consulting Group were substantial investors in the last Rally for Heroes, and it made sense to combine the financial power of the Company X Consulting Group with the motoring, fundraising passion and drive of Benn and Steve.  Together the five Directors have created something exciting and unique, which is Torque Events.

Creating memories that will last forever and providing exquisite travel with a deep-rooted passion for driving adventures.

Simply the best in not good enough in our book, Torque Events deliver exciting, captivating, and unforgettable driving events, tours, and experiences.

Your enjoyment and lifelong memories are our success!
