Car enthusiasts in Brechin and the surrounding area are being urged to sign up for the Monte Carol or Bust banger rally in aid of charity.

Organisers of the Rally are inviting real life Wacky Racers from Brechin to burn rubber for over 1000 miles to Monte Carlo 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 car for less than £300 and take part in a variety of hilarious challenges both on and off the road, competing for a variety of prizes and regrouping each evening at the Rally Rendezvous to relax, socialise and explore the local area.

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.

In 2014 over 150 cars and 500 people successfully completed the challenge and raised over £100,000 for UK charities.

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

The Monte Carlo or Bust Rally takes place in June and July 2015. There are running two routes to Monte Carlo; Black Forest Gateau and Champagne Charlie. Each event is limited to 80 places.
