Just under a week to go before BEN the automotive industry charity in conjuction with Car Dealer Magazine will be heading to the home of Ferrari, Maranello for Bangers4BEN MkIV.  This is taking place on Saturday 8 October through to Tuesday 11 October.

This year there are a record number of teams taking part and making the trip to Italy to raise vital funds for BEN and visit the birthplace of the most iconic automobiles. The exciting trip will take place over a challenging 4 days before arriving at this beautiful destination. 

The rules are that each team will buy a car for £500 or under which are then sold at a special auction with all the proceeds being donated to BEN. 

James Baggott, Editor of Car Dealer said, “This year’s record number of entries is absolutely fantastic, and is a testament to the hard work BEN has put in organising this special trip to the home of Ferrari.  

In keeping with the last three Bangers4BEN events we have an eclectic mix of entrants and competing cars, making this year’s event perhaps the best yet. Hopefully we can raise even more money this year for BEN whose sterling work is in an inspiration.”

BEN is the automotive industry’s only dedicated charity. Founded in 1905, BEN offers practical and financial help, support, advice and friendship to those who work, or have worked in the automotive and related industries and to their family dependants. In addition to its substantial welfare work, BEN operates a number of care centres at various locations throughout the UK and a day care centre in Coventry.
