Rugeley team take on Monte Carlo rally challenge

Rugeley team take on Monte Carlo rally challenge!

Susan Jackson is leading a team from Rugeley taking part in Europe’s largest banger driving challenge this summer.  The Monte Carlo or Bust Rally will see around 75 vehicles, each purchased for £500 or less, travel from the UK to Monte Carlo via France, Switzerland and Italy.

The rally challenges entrants to source and decorate a banger for less than £500 and take part in a variety of fun challenges along the way competing for points and prizes.  The 3-day crusade will see the bangers visit some of Europe’s most exciting locations and experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow!   During the event the team will have to complete fun challenges in order to win points.  Previous challenges include organising a conga of nuns and having a band play in the back seat of your car.

Previous participants have raised over £300,000 for UK charities and received media coverage on both sides of the Channel.  Organisers are confident that the 2018 will be even bigger success!

Rally spokesperson, Simon Johnston, comments:  “We are delighted that Susan and the team are joining us this summer on Europe’s ultimate banger rally adventure.   This is a brilliant opportunity to have an amazing driving experience in one of the worst cars from Rugeley!”

The team now have until July to get their car and fancy dress ready for the event.  More information can be found on the event website at
