ORGANISERS of the Monte Carlo or Bust Banger Rally are inviting car enthusiasts from East Lancashire to burn rubber for more than 1,000 miles to the principality via France, Switzerland and Italy to raise money for charity.

The rally challenges entrants to source an old car for less than £250 and take part in a variety of events along the way, competing for points and prizes.

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

Rally spokesman Cuthbert Ware-Armitage, said: “I am laying down the challenge to the people of East Lancashire to join me on Europe’s ultimate banger rally adventure.

“This is a brilliant opportunity to experience some of the greatest roads in Europe in some of worst cars from Lancashire.”

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