March 7 2012.

On Friday 16 March, BEN, the automotive industry charity, will be holding its newest and most challenging event - the 24 hour Cycle Challenge. The demanding ride takes place at Europe's fastest banked racing circuit Rockingham, Northamptonshire.

This event gives corporate teams and individuals a great opportunity to get involved and support their industry's charity. Teams of four will race to complete as many laps of the International Supercar Circuit as possible in a 24 hour period. The entry fee is £50 (£12.50 per person) and a commitment to raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship per person.

Kelly Neal, BEN's Events Manager commented, "New events are always exciting and although the Cycle Challenge is going to be a test for everyone taking part, it will be great fun. I encourage anyone interested to come and join us - the more the merrier!"
