Ten car enthusiasts are taking on the 1,000-mile plus event around the UK in six cars, fit only for the scrap heap and worth no more than £1,000.

They start and finish in Brighton, hoping to raise £5,000 for charity Meningitis Now helping to combat the devastating disease. Along the way, competitors will take on a series of daily challenges. The tour starts on Wednesday 27th June and finishes on Monday 2nd July.
