About

Bust Rallies are the ultimate banger rally adventures that challenge you to drive some of Europe’s most spectacular roads in an unspectacular car  

What is a banger rally?

With no set routes, speed, or clocks to race against, it’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line. Rather, it’s about fun challenges, adventure, camaraderie, fancy dress and accomplishing something as unique as you are.  All cars are welcome - but you'll receive more starting grid points the older and smaller your engine size!

Bust Rallies provide the ideal setting for a fun weekend, celebration or fundraising for your favourite charity.  You do not need a reason to take part – just a minimum of 2 drivers, appropriate insurance, a car and some sense of direction

(very little in many cases!).

Amazing cars, fancy dress themes, team challenges and guidance to incredible sights and locations mean you'll cross the finish line with more unforgettable experiences and friends than when you started

When you sign-up you'll receive your Pre-Rally Bible that contains everything you'll need to prepare for the event - as well as how to source and decorate your car.  Each team will have a Rally Bible during the event that contains routes, meeting points and lots of other useful information.  

You'll be asked to register the night before the rally and teams are brought together each morning and evening of the event to check-in, receive briefings and challenge sheets.  The Bust Rallies crew will be on hand throughout to provide you with any support you may need.  On the final evening there's a finishers party and an awards presentation . 

 

Following the rally you may choose to get your banger crushed and head home by other means.  Or perhaps you’ll add a couple of days to your stay allowing you to kick back and relax. The bravest of the brave may opt to throw caution to the wind and drive their trusty steed back home!
