Journeying Across Europe in Themed Vehicles

While the core essence of Bangers 4 BEN remains the celebration of cars and charity, what truly sets this event apart is its remarkable tradition of embarking on an annual European adventure. Each year, the event organisers select a new destination within Europe, adding an exciting twist to the journey.

In recent years, Bangers 4 BEN has taken participants to iconic locations such as Maranello, Monaco, the legendary F1 tracks at Spa and Silverstone, the challenging Nurburgring, and the breathtaking beauty of the Alps. These chosen destinations not only provide scenic routes but also offer a diverse range of challenges for the intrepid teams.

Past rallies

Themed Vehicle Transformations:

Participating teams at Bangers 4 BEN face a unique challenge: selecting and preparing a vehicle for the journey, all while adhering to a strict budgetary limit. The rule is simple – the chosen vehicle cannot cost more than £750. This financial constraint encourages creativity and resourcefulness, as teams seek out vehicles that can endure the demanding journey.

One of the most captivating aspects of Bangers 4 BEN is the freedom teams have to “theme” their vehicles as they see fit. Over the years, this tradition has evolved into an extraordinary spectacle of creativity. Participants have transformed their vehicles into rolling works of art, often reflecting imaginative and sometimes whimsical themes.

Immersing Yourself in the Action

It’ll take in gorgeous Irish landscapes, including the Wicklow Mountains, Sally Gap, Waterford Copper Coast, the Ring of Kerry, plus the Wild Atlantic Way.

Starting the day with a Guinness free breakfast we will be setting off once more along the enchanting coastal route, heading toward the coastal gem of Kinsale and the renowned Ring of Kerry.

Day 4 – Tuesday, October 10 – Dublin

As the sun rises over Dublin, which has earned the title of the friendliest European city on TripAdvisor. Our journey culminates with a lunchtime ferry voyage back to the UK. Notably, all the cars used in this unforgettable adventure will be auctioned later at BCA Blackbushe, with the proceeds contributing to the noble cause of BEN.

The Essential Role of The AA:

A Trusty Companion on the Road

With the invaluable support of The AA, approximately 45 daring teams set out on the mission of safely delivering their “bangers” to the chosen destination and back. Whether it’s mechanical assistance or navigating unexpected obstacles, The AA plays a crucial role in making the journey safer and more enjoyable.

Once the adventure concludes, these trusty vehicles are handed over for auction, with all proceeds generously donated to BEN, furthering its noble cause in the automotive industry.


Charitable Auction


From Bangers to Beneficence

Upon reaching their destination, the teams hand over their beloved “bangers” to be sold at auction. This is where the charity aspect of Bangers 4 BEN shines brightest. The proceeds from these auctions go directly to BEN, the benevolent fund supporting automotive industry workers and their families during times of need.


In essence, Bangers 4 BEN combines the thrill of automotive adventure with the heartwarming spirit of charity.
