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, car stickers, trophy, camping and the official Rally DVD.

Entries are limited, to guarantee a place in this much sought after event a deposit of £100 per car is required.

  • Rules

    There are very few rules, the ones we have are very straight forward but are very important and will be enforced where your safety is involved. Our decision is final. For everyone’s safety and enjoyment all teams will be required to agree to the full Terms and Conditions of entry.
    This event is categorically not a race, and anyone who thinks otherwise will be unceremoniously booted off the rally! Likewise, any anti social behaviour will not be tolerated
    Bumping into or nudging other team cars, whether driving or parked is strictly prohibited. Teams have put a lot of time, effort and money in getting there car ready and will not appreciate having there cars bumped into!
    We were hoping that the most you would spend on a car would be £200, due to the high prices scrap is getting at the moment we have raised this to about £500.

    Although we are not going to be strict on this but you will certainly look out of place turning up in a brand new BMW!!
    Whether you come in a banger or a classic, it must be road worthy, and where there is a value limit on the value of the car this does not include the amount you can spend to get it through an MOT if necessary, or improve your chances that it will make the finish safely.
    Factory built convertibles are acceptable but “crop tops” involving the removal of the roof are unsafe and are strictly banned.
    You must present a valid MOT, Insurance (including continental cover) and your driving license at the start of the rally, without these you are not in the rally, no exceptions.
    We would recommend, if you have time, to drive the car home so that you can enter the following years rally without having to spend out again on another car.

    The other option is to sell or dispose of your vehicle in an environmentally sound manner by taking it to a local scrap yard or finding an auction at the finish. We do not condone any illegal dumping at the roadside or leaving your car in a long stay at the airport.
  • FAQs

    You are probably thinking, there will be support on route! You are joking surely?

    You really would not appreciate it if we deprived you of the uncertainty each day on whether you chosen chariot will make it to the next checkpoint, let alone start in the morning. Breaking down miles from anywhere, on a mountain pass in a strange country must be top banana in the entertainment stakes and worth the entry fee alone as I’m sure several teams will testify when they arrive back home!
    That is a Banger Rally Secret... one clue, it's in Spain!
    This is also top secret. The route and stop over points will be confirmed with each team leader, four weeks in advance of the trip.
    Although the Banger Rally Challenge has 6 Official Charities each team are free to raise money for other good causes if they wish.
    No! Although camping is included in the cost of entry, each night will have upgrades available. Dependent on availability at the campsites this usually includes chalets or static caravans and these will be available at a cost, on a first come first served basis.
    Glory hunter! 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.

    Although every one who takes part is a winner, each participant will also be provided with a fantastic medal memento on finishing.
