A MADCAP driving adventure across Europe has raised thousands for a charity supporting terminally ill children.

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend, teams in banger cars worth less than a grand each - drove up to 2,000 miles, in a rally organised and run by Roadhog, a company based in Kenilworth.

It began at the home of British motor sport Brands Hatch and headed through Gent, Cologne, Nuremberg

Prague, Berlin, Hamburg and Osnabruick

More than £11,000 has been raised for Dreams Come True, a charity supporting terminally ill children across the UK and Northern Ireland.

And Roadhog managing director, Camillus Hammill, is not stopping there.

He said: “We had a great time and raised an astonishing figure, which is still climbing.

“My personal target for the next three years is £100,000 – we may as well aim high and we are well on track for that.”

"Next year it will be limited to 30 cars and we'll try to raise £30,000.

"We have so many people to thank for making it possible, including Acorn Printing Coventry who supplied the clothing and winner outfits."
