Wigtownshire’s worst cars handed European challenge

Organisers of the 2013 Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally are hopeful of finding teams from Wigtownshire to burn rubber for over 1000 miles to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy in July.

The rally challenges entrants to source a banger car for less than £250 and take part in a variety of Top Gear-style challenges along the way. Teams are encouraged to raise money for a local charity of their choice and can share their progress with GPS tracking along the way.

Inspired by the classic Paramount film, the three-day crusade will see over 100 of the finest British bangers experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow.

There are a series of prizes up for grabs including trophies for the best - and worst - dressed teams.

Monte Carlo or Bust is set to take place between 12-14 of July and more information can be found on the event website at www.montecarloorbust.eu
