The Challenge: Driving a £100 car to Banjul

For those that have vast amounts of money and very little sense, there is the Paris-Dakar rally. Teams like ourselves who have no money and arguably even less sense, choose the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge.

The Challenge is to simply drive a cheap banger from Plymouth to Banjul following the route of the famous Paris-Dakar Rally on a limited budget, with the principle aim of helping some Charitable causes in The Gambia and Senegal.

Since the success of the inaugural event at the start of 2003, interest in The Challenge has been growing continuously, such that in the 2007 Event, there are four groups of 50 vehicles taking part.

Team Flapjack's Route from Plymouth to Banjul.

Registered Charity No: 1062559

Team Flapjack are doing the Plymouth-Banjul Challenge in an attempt to raise £3000 for The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each day in the UK, 6 teenagers will find out they have cancer. Young people often get a raw deal, receiving hospital treatment in inappropriate facilities alongside children or elderly people. In many cases, cancer in teens is not picked up early enough as symptoms are dismissed as just being growing pains. Because teenagers are undergoing growth spurts, their cancers grow faster than other age groups and they can be at greater risk.
