Bangers4Ben is now in its 13th year and has raised over £500,000 for Ben, the automotive industry charity. The Automotion team have been behind the running of this event for over ten years and now run it on behalf of Ben in entirety.
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 make overs 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.
The event has grown in stature and popularity over the years and despite an enforced hiatus in 2020, was back with a bang in
2021 with our Best of British event.
We’re now pleased to confirm that Bangers4Ben returns in 2022 and we’re back off to Europe again, with our Bangers Does Bond event. Places are almost sold out, so if you are interested in getting involved register here now.
You simply will not find anything quite like Bangers4Ben anywhere else. If you are interested in taking part in the event or want to talk to us about hosting a similar event for you, contact us now firstname.lastname@example.org
