Following the success of Car Dealer magazine's last Bangers 4 BEN challenge, Editor James Baggott decided to invite readers to take part in a brand new challenge to take part in October 2009.
Earlier this year four members of the Car Dealer team raised £1,700 for BEN by buying ‘bangers' for £250 and then raising money by selling them after the event. This year the event is being organised by BEN. The event has already sold out, with a total of thirty teams due to take part.
Charles Davis, BEN's Director of Fundraising and Communications said;
"The last Bangers 4 BEN event was a great success and this challenge is going to be bigger and better than ever. This is a fantastically fun event and we hope that the industry will really get behind it and have a great time raising money for their charity."
James Baggott, Car Dealer's editor said;
"Our last Bangers 4 BEN was such a great event to be involved with that we felt we just had to do it again and try to raise even more for our industry charity. BEN has had a tough few months and this is our way of thanking them for the support that they give to the industry. 2009 will see thirty teams compete and we hope to see some amazing results at auction."
