Rewind the clock and cast your mind back 10 years. It’s 2008, Gordon Brown is Prime Minister, some guy called Lewis Hamilton has just taken his first world championship in one of the closest F1 finales in history, the world's stock markets are in free fall as a global recession grips and a team from CarDealer magazine assembled with an array of bangers for a road trip unlike any other.
A lot has changed in 10 years but one event that has remained a constant is Bangers4Ben and this year it is back and is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary, and what's more, our very own 67 Degrees team will be taking on the challenge!
A madcap banger rally taking place over several days, the event see’s car dealers and automotive industry suppliers alike take each other on to reign supreme in the banger stakes. The challenge, source a car for £750 or less, decorate acquired banger in a distinctive and eye-catching fashion whilst raising as much money as possible for Ben before embarking on a European driving adventure. Upon returning to the UK, said banger must be delivered to auction where it will go under the hammer for Ben.
We are proud to support this great cause and last year, the event broke records by raising a mighty £59,000. We are looking to reach a target of £2000 to help contribute to this total, so if you are able to donate in any way, however small, we would all very much appreciate your generous support.
