The FrontSeatDriver Banger Rally team are back!

After a break from banger rallies in 2011, instead concentrating on other motoring related events, we’ll be back behind the wheel of a sub-£250 car for the very special tenth anniversary running of Staples2Naples.

We took part in the fifth running of Staples2Naples, where it merged for two days with Home2Rome, at one point bringing 270 cars to the sleepy seaside resort of Sottomarina in Italy. We covered 2,681 miles on a £51 Renault Safrane, finishing the event in 24th place overall.

This time there’s a limit of just 100 cars, and we’re looking for a top ten result. It’s likely that The General Lee(xus) will come out of retirement, although a new paint job will be needed (feel free to share your ideas!), although there’s a couple of back up cars in the form of a SAAB GM900 and a Toyota Celica.

The event isn’t running until next August so don’t expect too many updates just yet, but keep checking back as the time will approach quicker than we expect!
