Take to road for banger rally

A call has gone out to all petrol-heads in South Holland to take part in the 2013 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally.

The rally challenges entrants to source a banger car for less than £250 to take part in a variety of Top Gear-style challenges over 1,000 miles to Monte Carlo, via France, Switzerland and Italy.

Teams are encouraged to raise money for a local charity of their choice.

Inspired by the classic film, the three-day crusade will see more than 100 bangers compete for a series of prizes and trophies,

Rally spokesman Cuthbert Ware-Armitage said: “I am laying down the challenge to the good people of Spalding to join me on Europe’s ultimate banger rally adventure.”

The event takes place from July 12 to 14 – go to www.montecarloorbust.eu
