Petrol heads will race from Kenilworth to Monte Carlo for charity in the latest extreme competition to get real life Wacky Races on the road.

Organisers of the Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally are inviting enthusiasts to join the 1,000 mile trip to Monte Carlo in a Top Gear-style challenge to raise money for charity.

The rally challenges car enthusiasts to source a banger car for less than £300 and make it to their destination via France, Switzerland and Italy.

And, along the way, taking part in a variety of hilarious challenges for points and prizes.

Teams are encouraged to raise money for a charity of their choice and can share their progress with supporters back home via live GPS tracking.

Inspired by the classic Paramount film, the three-day crusade will see more than 100 of the finest British bangers experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow.

Last year’s race raised over £100,000 for UK charities.

Rally spokesperson Cuthbert Ware-Armitage said: “I am setting the challenge to the good people of Kenilworth 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 the worst cars from Kenilworth.”

The Monte Carlo or Bust Rally takes place in June and July 2015.
