RealBrawnGP.com - Phil does Bangers 4 Ben

Phil over at http://www.realbrawngp.com/ is partaking in Bangers4Ben. Here's what he wrote:

Bangers4BEN is an industry event, where those in the motor trade gather together in some old, knackered car and thrash it to within an inch of its life. Or beyond.

With a spending limit of £250 (€290/$415), to include the car, repairs, MOT, etc., the journey could be tough. Ah yes, the journey - it's that famous run from, er, Ascot to John O'Groats. We'll then turn round and head to Brands Hatch, where we'll put in a few celbratory laps.

All of this will be done in November, where the rain/snow will undoubtedly play its part.

Finally, once we've finished, all the cars will be sent to BCA Auctions to be sold off.

It's all a great deal of fun, but there's a very serious point. All proceeds, including form the auction sales, will go to BEN, the Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund, and we'll be stopping off at one of their residential homes to brighten up a few peoples day. to see the work BEN does, take a look at BEN.org.uk.

We're now planning our attack, and already have support from some people, including Mitchell Signs who supported us in our previous Staples2Naples rally effort for SPARKS.

We'll obviously be taking donations for BEN before too long but, in the meantime, we'll also gladly take offers of support for the rally. Especially if you have an early Ford Mondeo saloon in blue. Then we'd really like to hear from you!

Should you feel the need to give to this very worthy cause please see here:

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
