PostSubject: UK Banger Rallies?   Wed Jul 09, 2008 7:27 pm

I know there's numerous european rallies where people drive in one direction as far as they can manage in 4 days and then think... bugger I've got to try and get home now... and then there's some where they drive round in a big circle so they hopefully end up back at the start again...

Anyway, I was wondering if there's anything similar, but in the UK, taking in some of the great roads in Wales and Scotland?

I thought Mr J R may know as he's the father of bangernomics, and in the business so to speak?

And if not, perhaps I'll have to arrange my own Very Happy

Thanks in advance...

Josh

I did home2rome* last year - and we arranged to fly back from Italy - but it seemed such a shame to leave the car there - especially as it had been 100% problem free for 2000+ miles!

This year I'd like to do something similar, but in the UK, and in a circle so you end where you start. Smile

I've heard there's some great welsh roads - and I know there's some great scottish ones.

* home2rome was with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] who do loads of european (and some american) banger rallies.

Maybe we should have a Bangernomics run of our own! I agree that leaving the car there is a bit daft, but maybe if we linked up with a charity so all the money went to them it could be done...J

Sounds like a good idea Smile

Could take in all the best sights and roads of the UK, and avoid all the motorways Smile

Could start in Birmingham (middle of the country?)

1st stage could be:
Head over to Wales - to the evo triangle - "The Dylife/Staylittle road over Clywedog is quite possibly the most fun you can have in a car" then to Liverpool for the first nights stay (Capitol of culture 08 Cool ). That would take all day with the evo triangle being in the middle where people could have lunch.

Not sure what the next stage would be? Heading towards Scotland? through the lake district?

Maybe it doesn't need organising as such... maybe it's just a case of working out a route going through some nice roads and places, then we just post it somewhere on the internet, and see if anyone else wants to go on a drive Smile

Plus add some "Rules" like:

Your car should cost 150 or less.
It must be taxed, MOT'd, and insured.

The route could have meeting points for the middle of the day and end of the day to make it more friendly.

Would we get enough people to turn up? THat's why you need to link up with a charity who would promote it and give it some point..J
