Not often one can say that, but its true! This morning I chatted to Batman, aka Gary Franks, on Swindon 105.5 about his recent banger run of around 2,500 miles over 6 days to Lake Como in aid of “Help for Heroes”.

The banger run has been organised for the past few years to raise money for “Help for Heroes”, http://www.bangerrun.com/

This year, after completing the run, the Batmobile raised over £1,200 and still counting.

The funny thing is that Gary’s co-driver is called Robin! Coincidence I’m sure, but the Gotham-Twinning team did rather well despite being side swiped on the autoroute by a devil may care driver.

The route took them across France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and over the Alps to Lake Como on the Italian side.

The Alps proved to be interesting; many passes to cross including Stelvio amongst others. Not for the faint hearted these passes, but I must admit to being a tad envious – I want to go there!!! Now!!!

For more details of the trip and photos of the Batmobile and the other contestants, see the www.bangerrun.com as well as www.facebook.com/Gotham.Twinning

Kapow! For now!
