Keen motorists are being encouraged to rev up and be part of a European challenge.

The 2017 Monte Carlo or Bust banger rally is now open for entries – and organisers are hopeful of finding teams from Lowestoft aiming to burn rubber for more than 1,100 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.

The three-day crusade will see more than 100 British bangers involved. Rally spokesman, Cuthbert Ware-Armitage, said: 'I am laying down the challenge to the good people of Lowestoft to join me on Europe's ultimate banger rally adventure.'

Monte Carlo or Bust takes place in June. Visit www.montecarloorbustrally.com for more details.
