BAKEWELL: Drive your old banger to Monte Carlo for charity

Monte Carlo

Calling all petrol heads! Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally is now open for entries and organisers are hopeful of finding teams from Bakewell to burn rubber for over 1000 miles to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy.

The rally challenges entrants to source a banger car for less than £250 and take part in a variety of Top Gear-style challenges along the way and compete for points and prizes. Teams are encouraged to raise money for a local charity of their choice and can share their progress with supporters back home via live GPS tracking.

Rally spokesperson, Cuthbert Ware-Armitage, said: “I am laying down the challenge to the good people of Bakewell to join me on Europe’s ultimate banger rally adventure. This is a brilliant opportunity to get your team into gear and experience some of the greatest roads in Europe in some of the worst cars from Bakewell!”.

Monte Carlo or Bust takes place between July 12-14. More information can be found on the event website at
