£100 VW Golf from eBay motors drives 5000 miles in desert

No primary category set

Rupert Gillingham and Sam Fenton purchased a sixteen year old car from eBay motors and drove from Plymouth to Banjul in Gambia. They were part of 200 cars entered into the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge 2007

Along the way they were robbed, had to bribe police checkpoints with sweets, hit by a bus on a ferry crossing and had to dig the car out of the sand in force 10 gales. However the trip did raise about £7000 for the Round Table Children’s Wish and Yorkshire Cancer Research charities – not bad for a hundred quid motor from eBay!
