BRC supports charity ‘banger’ car rally
St Albans car body repair specialists, Brian Robson Coachworks, is taking part in the inaugural ‘Bangers to Bangor and Back’ car rally in aid of Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
Leaving St Michael’s Manor hotel in St Albans on Saturday 16th September, the convoy of teams made up from businesses across the district, will drive their £500 ‘bangers’ (all which have MOTs and tax) to Bangor in North Wales and back, in the two day event. The rally is not a competition but teams will have to undertake a series of ‘challenges’ along the route, involving accurate navigation.
Martin Robson, director of Brian Robson Coachworks, will be sharing the driving duties with his father, Brian, who established St Albans’ leading body repair business more than 40 years ago.
The company was the first local business to sign up to the event being organised by Rennie Grove Hospice Care, which looks after people with cancer and other life-threatening conditions, in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
Martin and Brian will be driving a 17-year old BMW 525 saloon, which has been completely repainted in the new BRC livery.
Commented Martin: “Of course we jumped at the opportunity of a car rally and Rennie Grove is such a good charity, we are delighted to take part to raise valuable funds for their work. It’s going to be great team event and owning a bodyshop has given us a good advantage in the preparation of our car.”
