Calling all petrol heads!
The 2014 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 to raise money for charity.
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 three-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!
The 2013 event raised over £100,000 for UK charities and received media coverage on both sides of the Channel. Organisers are confident that the 2014 event will be an even bigger success.
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 in June and July 2014 and more information can be found on the event website at www.montecarloorbustrally.com
