Bangers 4 Ben 2015 Highlights & Donation Total

Bangers 4 Ben 2015 Highlights & Donation Total

29 October 2015

Well the dust has settled and we’ve recovered from the ordeal as Bangers 4 BEN is over for another year.

As well as being a great deal of fun, we have already raised £1,000 for BEN in direct donations from you, our members. On top of this, the car donated by IGA member Terry Dorney of In Town Automotive in Northampton raised another £475 when it was sold in the special charity auction at BCA Blackbushe on the 30th October. In total, auctioning off all of the B4B cars raised £23,000.

Our car, a 2002 Audi A4 with 167,000 miles on the clock, behaved impeccably throughout the trip and sustained some very high speeds on the German autobahn on the way to the Nurburgring from the BMW museum in Munich. It also completed laps of both Silverstone and Spa which you can see on YouTube by searching “IGA Spa” or “IGA Silverstone”.
