Aston Barclay take part in Alpine road trip to raise money for automotive charity, BEN
Posted 4 October 2017
Aston Barclay’s CEO Neil Hodson and his colleagues Gary Jonson, Rob Wittridge and Ian Winn have signed up to compete in the epic Bangers4Ben 1,500-mile road trip to raise funds for motor industry charity BEN.
Aston Barclay will be competing in two Nissan X-Trails which were bought for £500 each which will be decked out in a dinosaur theme with one lucky team member dressed as a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
This years “Alpine Special” will see teams drive to the Swiss Alps and back. Those taking part are expecting a journey filled with adventure whilst driving some of the most scenic roads that Switzerland has to offer. The four-day trip will see teams drive from Dover to Strasbourg, France on Day 1. Day 2 they will then travel to Davos, Switzerland. Then day three and four will see teams head back to England!
“We are so excited to get on the road; this weekend will be such a wonderful experience and of course we are raising funds for an incredible charity. Like most other entries we are just hoping our bangers are going to make it there and back without breaking down,” said Neil Hodson.
When the teams return to the UK, the final rule is that they sell their bangers at auction for the charity. There will be prizes awarded along the way including best fancy dress, best themed car and of course- the car that makes the most profit when auctioned back in the UK!
