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

The challenge event will cross the channel and take BEN entrants on a journey through the stunning countryside of France before arriving at the final destination of Monaco.

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.

Kelly Neal, BEN's Events Manager said: "We are very excited about this new event and it will be a great way to raise funds so that BEN can continue to support our industry colleagues and their dependants in times of need."
