The automotive industry charity, BEN will hold its inaugural BEN Motorcycle Rally riding from Dover to Monaco from 24 - 27 March 2012.

This is a new challenge event to the BEN calendar and will see entrants travelling across the channel and continue through the breathtaking French countryside until reaching the final destination of Monaco in the South of France.

The entry fee is £500 which covers the accommodation for up to two people (sharing), ferry crossings, breakfasts and evening meals. Entrants are additionally asked to raise a minimum of £500 sponsorship.

Ray Diggins, BEN's Head of Marketing said, "This is a unique riding challenge and a fantastic personal experience that also provides a phenomenal way to raise funds for BEN. All monies raised will help provide vital care and support for thousands of colleagues and their dependents from within the automotive industry in times of need."
