CALLING all Pembrokeshire petrol heads.

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

The rally challenges entrants to source a banger car for less than £250 and take part in a variety of hilarious challenges 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 via live GPS tracking.

Inspired by the classic Paramount film, the three-day crusade will see more 100 of the finest British bangers visit some of Europe's most exciting locations and experience spectacular roads with backdrops of sun, sea, sand and snow.

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

“This is a brilliant opportunity to get your team into gear and experience some of the greatest roads in Europe in some of worst cars from Pembrokeshire!”

In 2013, 79 cars and 216 people successfully completed the challenge and raised more than £100,000 for UK charities.

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