BRIDGWATER petrol-heads are being called upon to take part in the 2017 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally.

Organisers are hoping for find a team from Bridgwater to emulate Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May to burn rubber for more than 1100 miles to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy to raise money for charity.

The rally challenges entrants to source a car for less than £500 and take part in a variety of fun activities along the way competing for points and prizes. 

Teams are encouraged to raise money for a charity of their choice and can share their progress with supporters back home via live GPS tracking. 

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

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