Bangers4BEN live…

Time 13 years ago

bangers4benlogoTHIS weekend we’re taking on our Bangers4BEN challenge to raise money for the automotive industry charity.

You can follow all the action throughout the weekend – from what cars we bought for £200 to whether we’ve been buried in a snow drift – in our dedicated section.

Simply CLICK HERE to be taken to the latest blogs – and leave us a comment of support!

Or if you’re feeling really generous you can add to our lowly total (we do also  plan to make a bit more by selling the cars at the end!) – just visit to be taken to a page where you can donate online!


The Car Dealer team and friends have been handed £200 each by the bosses to spend on a banger that will get them from Portsmouth to John O’Groats and back in three days.

We’ll be taking in a trackday on day one thanks to Motorsport Vision, an MPG marathon on day two when we’ll get (hopefully) to the tip of Scotland.

Then, on day three, we travel the 650 miles home. Yes, it will be tough. Yes, it will be cold. And yes, we may break down, but one thing’s for sure – it’s bound to be eventful.
