GIB OR BUST - 30th Sep to 5th Oct 2018
What's it all about?
This is an opportunity of a lifetime and will give you a trip to remember, driving on some of Europe’s finest and most scenic roads.
The only snag is that your car has to cost around a measly £500 to be entered in to the Banger Rally category or you may just like to drive a more expensive vehicle which you will not be eligible to the prize money but you can still raise money for charity.
With all this excitement you’re probably wondering how much this will cost to enter! The cost will be £280, which is based on two people sharing a car; additional passengers will be charged at £60 per person. Entrance fee includes welcoming and finishing party, t-shirts, suggested route plan, daily quiz and challenges, car stickers, trophy, camping and your own team leader who will look after you, well sort off, on the entirety of the rally.
Entries are limited, to guarantee a place in this much sought after event a deposit of £100 per car is required.

Tell me more...
The rally will start on September 30th September leaving St Austell, Cornwall on Sunday lunchtime and finishing in Morocco on Friday 5th October.
To keep you and your passengers amused there will be several tasks to perform on route to earn bonus points, but if you just want to cruise through the countryside without taking part then that’s just as cool with us too. Remember rule number 1, this is categorically not a race across Europe, but a leisurely drive by like-minded people, and there will be no advantage in arriving first.
Points mean Prizes...
Managing to coax your chosen wreck to the finish point should be rewarding enough but at the final night’s presentation ceremony, over £2000 worth of cash prize’s will be awarded to the teams scoring the most points in each of the daily tasks and the overall winner will also receive a cash prize and a suitable trophy!
An additional prize of £300 will be awarded for the most imaginative/decorated car and there occupants.
All for a Good Cause
Teams are invited to raise money for our six main charities - Cornwall Hospice Care (Mount Edgcumbe Hospice), Turn to Starboard, Marie Curie, Cornwall Air Ambulance, Merlin MS Centre and Children's Hospice Southwest or you could raise money for your own Charity/Organisation but we don’t make it a condition of entry.
Over the years the Banger Rally Challenge has managed to raise over £750,000 for charities across the UK, this year we want to better that again!
