Almost time for the 2015 Bangers4BEN charity auction!

Time 2:52 pm, October 27, 2015

THERE are just a couple of days to go until this year’s Bangers4BEN charity auction.

The special sale will be staged at BCA Blackbushe on Friday to raise money for BEN, the charity for those who are working or who have worked in the automotive industry.

All the competing cars from this year’s Car Dealer Bangers4BEN rally will be offered and sold. The sale is scheduled to commence at 1.15 pm.

The rally, which took place earlier this month, began at the home of the British Grand Prix, Silverstone, before heading to Munich, Germany for a quick stop at the BMW museum, and finally taking a lap of Spa Francorchamps, Belgium before heading back to the UK.

Each car was purchased specially for the event for no more than £750 by the competing teams and then donated to be sold at the end of the rally. BCA will sell the cars free of charge to ensure the maximum is raised for the charity and will donate all the buyer’s fees to the cause.

Last year’s sale, also staged at Blackbushe, raised £15,500 and BCA is looking forward to helping BEN raise as much money as possible again this year.

Buyers will be presented with a great selection of vehicles, including unique customised examples such as the Star Wars Audi A4 convertible, Fiat Cinquecento ‘Big Bird’, Mercedes F1 Medical Car, the ‘Mello Yello’ Suzuki Liana and the MG styled as a USA Navy Fighter Plane.

BCA’s head of PR, Tim Naylor, said: ‘We’re delighted to be able to aid BEN again in the sale of the cars that took part in the 2015 Bangers4BEN rally.

‘There are certainly some unusual vehicles set to go through the sale and we are sure our customers will dig deep to support this very worthy cause.’
