Bangers4BEN 2014 has raised the most it ever has for the charity this year – more than £35,000!

At a sale at BCA Blackbushe today, 30 of the cars which competed in our adventure to Turin and back were auctioned for the automotive industry charity BEN raising £15,500.

One notable absentee from the auction was the Blackshaws Suzuki Dog – this won the prize for the Best Dressed Car on the event and will be displayed at this year’s BEN Ball and auctioned off there.

Car Dealer Magazine’s Mazda MX-5, entered by James Baggott, made a loss of £250 while our other car, a BMW z4 driven by Andy Entwistle, made a profit of £350.

BCA Blackbushe manager James Gibson said: “We were delighted to help the Bangers4BEN initiative by selling the competing cars here at Blackbushe. This event has raised considerable funds for BEN. Congratulations to the team at Car Dealer magazine for organising the event and to all the teams who took part.”

THE AUCTION

Here are the results of today’s auction. The car that was bought for the least amount and sold for the most – making the biggest return for BEN – takes our overall winner’s prize. Congratulations to Gen-3 for raising such a huge amount for BEN.

A full report on Bangers4BEN will appear in the next issue of Car Dealer Magazine, which will be out in the middle of November. You can subscribe to get that issue here.
