Can you take on the Monte Carlo or Bust challenge?

Calling all petrol heads!

The 2013 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally is now open for entries and organisers are hopeful of finding a team from Fenland to burn rubber over the 993 miles to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy.

The rally challenges entrants to source a banger car for less than £250 and take part in a variety of Top Gear-style challenges along the way and compete for points and prizes.

Teams are encouraged to raise money for a local charity of their choice and can share their progress with supporters back home via live GPS tracking.

Inspired by the classic Paramount film, the 3-day crusade will see over 100 of the finest British bangers visit some of Europe’s most exciting locations and experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow.

There are a series of prizes up for grabs including trophies for the best - and worst - dressed teams.

Rally spokesperson, Cuthbert Ware-Armitage, said: “I am laying down the challenge to the good people of Fenland to join me on Europe’s ultimate banger rally adventure. This is a brilliant opportunity to get your team into gear and experience some of the greatest roads in Europe in some of worst cars from Fenland.”

Monte Carlo or Bust takes place between July 12-14 and more information can be found on the event website at www.montecarloorbust.eu
