Organisers of the Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally are calling for Deeside petrolheads to cover 1000 miles to Monaco for charity.

Real life ‘‘Wacky Racers’’ are invited to take part in the rally, which will see drivers end up amidst the bright lights of Formula 1 hub, Monte Carlo.

The 1000-mile rally will head to the principality of Monaco via France, Switzerland and Italy in a Top Gear-style challenge to raise money for charity.

The rally challenges car enthusiasts to source a banger for less than £300 and take part in a variety of hilarious challenges along the way, competing for points and prizes.

Teams are encouraged to raise money for a local 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 over 100 of the finest British bangers visit some of Europe’s most exciting locations and experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow!

Participants in the 2014 event raised over £100,000 for UK charities.

Rally spokesperson, Cuthbert Ware-Armitage, said: “I am laying down the challenge to the good people of Deeside 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 Deeside!”

The Monte Carlo or Bust Rally takes place in June and July 2015 and more information can be found on the event website at
