Bangers4Ben is now in it’s 15th year and has raised more than £500,000 for the Automotive industry charity BEN. The team behind the British Motor Show have been involved in running the event from the start and now run it on behalf of BEN in entirety.

Originally conceived by Car Dealer Magazine, each year a new destination around Europe is chosen, with the teams having visited Maranello, Monaco, the F1 tracks at Spa, Silverstone, Nurburgring and The Alps in recent years. Team members must purchase a vehicle for no more than £750 which they will then drive, normally covering around 2000 miles in just 4 days. The vehicles can be “themed” as the teams wish, with vehicles getting more extreme makeovers as the years have gone on.

Aided by The AA, around 40 teams will attempt to get their “banger” to the destination and back, before handing the car over to be sold at auction, with the proceeds going to Ben.  You simply will not find anything quite like Bangers4Ben anywhere else.
