A call has gone out to all petrol-heads in South Holland to take part in the 2014 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally.

Organisers of the rally are inviting car enthusiasts from the district to burn rubber for over 1000 miles for charity.

The race to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy will take place in June and July. There are two routes – Black Forest Gateau and Champagne Charlie – and each event is limited to 80 places.

Entrants are challenged to source a banger car for less than £250 and take part in a variety of hilarious challenges along the way competing 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.

Inspired by the classic Paramount film, the three-day crusade will see over 100 of the finest British bangers visit some of Europe’s most exciting locations and experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow!

Rally spokesperson, Cuthbert Ware-Armitage, said: “I am laying down the challenge to the good people of South Holland 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 South Holland!”

Last year 79 cars and 216 people completed the challenge and raised over £100,000 for UK charities. More information can be found on the event website at
