Watch out for the Twin Town 18 cars!

Some pretty unusual cars are starting to appear on the streets of the UK as the Anglo-French Twin Town Challenge 2018 fast approaches!

Over 100 cars costing less than £500 have signed up to spend a May bank Holiday rattling to France and back, and the competition for the most insane look is hotting up.

This lovely Mini from the Wychwood Brewery with their Hobgoblin IPA Car, for example:

And check out this stunning Lightning McQueen doppleganger below snapped at Cokethorpe School in Oxfordshire, where the Junior School pupils took part in an inspired sponsored walk fundraiser. Between them they covered a distance equivalent to Le Touquet and back!

We can't WAIT to see what the Ant Hill mob do with their banger:

The Twin Town Challenge, kindly organised in aid of SpecialEffect by our Vice-President Brendon Cross and his amazing team of volunteers, is due to take place during 25-28 May.

If you don't have a car in the event, you can still be part of the action at Le Grand Ball, a movie-themed spectacular celebration to mark the official ending of TTC18. Held on Friday 7 September and open to all, pre-sales have been strong and tables are selling fast, so secure your table or tickets today by clicking here. A table for ten, including three courses and a welcome drink, is just £750 and individual tickets are £75 each. Don't delay, book today!

STOP PRESS: We’re delighted to announce that Le Grand Ball will be sponsored by our fabulously fantastic friends and TTC18 lead sponsors, Playground Games.
