Roundabout launched its first Bangers and Cash challenge in 2018, when 21 teams of intrepid adventurers hit the road and raised £96,000 as supporters drove from Sheffield to Monte Carlo in the craziest motoring adventure of the year, their car bonnets all decorated with unique works created specially by a team of professional artists.

Now Bangers and Cash is back and heading for a new destination, the German city of Munich and its famous Oktoberfest.

But on Sunday July 16, visitors to the Bakewell County Festival will be able to enjoy a preview of the road trip to come as Roundabout hosts a stand at the event.

Throughout the day, Bangers and cash artists Lois Cordelia and Skeg, will be live painting their bonnets and road signs.

And those unique art works will eventually be sold at the art trail and auction which marks the culmination of Bangers and Cash, once all the teams are home.

“We are delighted that Bakewell Country Festival have invited us to join their special day, giving us a chance to share what Roundabout and Bangers and Cash are all about,” said the charity’s fundraising manager Emily Bush.

“A big addition this year is the art trail that will take to the streets of Sheffield in October, giving the public a fun chance to see all the bonnets from the competing cars prior to the auction that brings Bangers and cash to its climax.

“We’ll have all the information about the charity and the event at Bakewell so do come along and say hello.”

Bangers and Cash sets off from Sheffield on September 14, by which time the competing teams will each have paid a registration fee and then raised at least £2,000 for the charity.

Adding to the difficulty of the adventure - which covers eight countries and 1,092 miles - each team is allowed to spend no more than £1,500 on their vehicle.
