Go, go, go! It’s day one of Bangers4Ben and the teams are on their way!

Time 3 years ago

AND they’re off! The Bangers4Ben teams are setting off on the annual charity rally across Europe today – the event that’s raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for the automotive good cause over the years.

There was great excitement as the teams assembled at Brooklands Motor Museum in Weybridge before making a run for the Channel Tunnel and France, where they’ll be heading to Reims.

Tomorrow, they’ll cross another border and drive into Germany before stopping for the night in the home of Porsche – Stuttgart.


Sunday will take them on some German autobahns as well as some more winding roads, then into Belgium, where they will stop for the night in Bruges. Day four will see the trippers heading to a secret location, to be revealed that morning.

There will be full coverage of the event in the December issue of Car Dealer.

Check out some of the top tweets so far as the teams gather in Surrey ready for the off….
