Tradewise is taking part in the Bangers4Ben charity drive this October


The 9th annual Bangers4Ben charity drive starts on 7th October.  The event is in aid of BEN-Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund and sees participants driving a customised banger, worth no more than £750 over 1600 miles from Dover to the Swiss Alps and back again.  With this year's Alpine theme, Tradewise has created the SAAB bobsled with both Mike Tyler and James Humphreys taking turns behind the wheel.

We are using JustGiving to raise money for the Bangers4Ben charity.  If you would like to support our efforts, please visit our JustGiving page to donate.  We appreciate any and all contributions.

The intended itinery for the event is as follows:

Day 1 - Saturday, 7th October 2017 - Dover, England to Strasbourg, France - 436 miles

Bangers4Ben 2017 starts with an early morning meet at the ferry port of Dover and a chance for teams to meet.  The first leg in France see the longest stint to Strasbourg and a well-earned overnight stop

Day 2 - Sunday, 8th October 2017, Strasbourg, France to Davos, Switzerland - 357 miles

After a hearty continental breakfast we head to the Alpine passes.  First up will be the Furka Pass, immortalised by the Aston DB5/Ford Mustang chase in James Bond's Goldfinger, heading to the most beautiful and "smoothest" mountain pass; San Bernadino.  Then we make our way to Davos for our overnight stop.

Day 3 - Monday 9th October 2017, Davos, Switzerland to Strasbourg, France - 393 miles

Today is the longest day in the car but the drive will be worth it! First on the list is the most famous of the passes, Stelvio, and once having conquered the 48 switchbacks we head back to Davos via the Umbrail Pass.  The Klausen Pass is our final Alpine road before we head back to Strasbourg for our overnight stop.

Day 4 - Tuesday, 10th October 2017, Strasbourg, France to Dover, England - 436 miles

This is our last day and another long journey as we head to Calais to meet the ferry to take us back to Blighty and say our farewells.
