GForces are proud to be participating in Bangers 4 BEN which saw a team of ‘bangers’ head off from Ascot this morning, including our very own LeadBeast Beast.
Bangers 4 BEN is a charity challenge organised by Car Dealer magazine and BEN, the automotive industry charity which provides care and support to employees and their dependants in times of need. Earlier this year four members of the Car Dealer team raised £1,700 for BEN by buying ‘bangers’ for £250 and selling them after the event. All the cars taking part in Bangers 4 BEN will be auctioned off after the even with all money raised donated to BEN. Participants include main dealers from across the UK, independent dealers, car manufacturers and many suppliers to the motor trade.
Jamie Dixon, our Sales Director and Paul Hilton, Business Development Manager, will represent GForces in our LeadBeast branded banger, a 2001 Suzuki Vitara.
The event started early in the morning on Monday, November 9th at BEN’s Ascot headquarters. The destination on Day One is Inverness, in Scotland. On the second day, the teams will travel from Inverness to John O’Groats and then back down to Berwick-upon-Tweed. On the final day, teams will head to Mercedes Benz World at Brooklands for a few laps of the track and the finish line.
