In under a month the Car Dealer Magazine crew – plus 30 other teams from across the motor trade – will be setting off for Monaco in a bunch of £500 bangers.
On Sept 12 we’ll be leaving on a boat from Dover for a four-day round trip to Monte Carlo and back – if the cars make it!
Problem is, as always, we’ve left finding the car a bit late… That means this week we’re at full Auto Trader and eBay alert, hunting around for a motor that will be reliable and comfortable for the 1,600-mile trip.
If you’ve spotted anything that you think would be suitable we’d really appreciate a head’s up. Or if you’ve got something in ‘poo corner’ (as Big Mike would put it) we’d be happy to take it off your hands.
Bangers4BEN raises money for the charity by auctioning off the cars at a special BCA sale with all the proceeds being handed over. Last year the event raised in excess of £15,000 and this year we want to raise even more!
And as of this morning we have just two places left on the event so if you fancy coming along log on to ben.org.uk/bangers4BEN where you can sign up.
Right, back to the greatest car supermarket otherwise known as the world wide web…
