Charities are searching for a team of petrolheads to burn some rubber from Barnet to Monte Carlo in this year’s Bust Banger Rally.

Participants will be challenged with finding an old banger for less than £250 and driving it over the 953 miles to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy, to raise money for their chosen charity.

En-route, teams from across the UK will take part in a variety of Top Gear-style challenges and compete for points and prizes.

Rally spokesman Cuthbert Ware-Armitage said:  “I am laying down the challenge to the good people of Barnet 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 worst cars from Barnet.”

The challenge will take place in June and July 2014. To sign up visit
