Rotary rally team heads for Venice.
BUSINESSES are backing Rotary Clubs from Solihull and Birmingham as they bid to drive four 'bangers' all the way from Beckett's Farm to Venice as part of the annual Motorscape Rally.
Members from the Rotary Club of Birmingham, the Young Executive 'Satellite' of Rotary's Solihull Club and Birmingham Rotary Breakfast Club will be taking four cars on the epic voyage to raise funds for local charities.
One of those taking part in the Rotary Banger Rally, which sets off tomorrow at 7pm, is Barry Badham, president of the Rotary Club of Birmingham Barry, who will be in a 20-yearold Honda Civic, which until recently was sat in a farmyard, said: "From Birmingham to Venice in bangers worth no more than PS300, we will be driving in Top Gear style - or is it bottom gear - to raise over PS20,000 for local charities."
