This Peugeot 106 car bonnet is a unique piece of art created for Bangers and Cash, the UK’s first art roadshow banger rally from Sheffield to Monte Carlo which took place on 21st – 25th September 2018. Sponsored by Julie Kenny, this car was driven by Team Roundabout.

Ben, Neil and Jonny from Roundabout took inspiration from their bonnet design by dressing as tigers not just for the first day of the rally as the tigers made another appearance at Lago della Piazza where they made a splash in the very cold lake to earn points en route to Monte Carlo.

Lisa is a commercial illustrator, designer and lettering artist based in Sheffield, working for clients such as John Lewis, Chatsworth House and Weight Watchers. Lisa's aim is to create work that not only looks aesthetically pleasing, but that has positive and sometimes challenging messages, which has led to many of her projects gaining international acclaim. You may also recognise Lisa's work from 'The Herd of Sheffield' project with her elephant 'small beginnings'. You can find out more about Lisa at www.lisamaltby.com

Lisa created a design with a nostalgic feel to appeal to all the big kids taking part in the race, but with the irony of it being placed on an old banger! The design, whilst reflecting a competitive spirit, is also a reminder that we are all born with the potential to achieve great things. For some, circumstances get in the way, which is why raising money for Roundabout is so important - to give young people the confidence to overcome difficulties and conquer challenges.

All our bonnets are in great condition, but some may bear minor stone chips and imperfections in the paintwork from the journey, but this highlights the authenticity of the piece and adds to the story and character of the bonnet.
