July 5th - 8th
No of Days:

This fantastic banger rally takes in the amazing Swiss Alps, rolling hills of Italy, French Riviera and the Spanish Catalan capital. Is there anything else you could ask for in a banger rally?

Day 1 - Lille to Thun

We start at Lille at 7:30am and head to Thun. We do five countries in one drive today (it's a long route but we didn't put Switzerland where it is). Thun is a stunning Swiss town set in the middle of the Alps and today's meeting point is a bar next to a picturesque weir. We have hotels booked in Thun but there is also camping accommodation available.


Day 2 Day of Days

The second day of the rally is where the fun driving really begins, after leaving Thun we head off over the Alps which is a stunning drive passing over the Gran St Bernard pass where the Italian job was filmed (bus over the cliff scene). You have the option to go through the tunnel, but going over the pass will be part of the days challenge. The final destination is Salze D\'Oulx, an Italian Ski town that we have pretty much to ourselves for the night. After a challenging day of driving you will be pleased to let your hair down. Day 2 is an amazing challenge day with 5 mountain passes for the hardened driver.


Day 3 Monte Carlo or Bust

Travelling from the heart of the mountains and stunning countryside we head off to the French Riviera over one more picturesque mountain pass. We pass by Monte Carlo and for those who don't mind arriving a bit later you can always drop down to have a look. A popular alternative route is via Gap where many ralliers stop off to enjoy an invigorating swim in one of the many lakes. The destination is the Historic French city of Arles.


Day 4 Barcelona or Busted

The destination after Arles is Barcelona. This is a short drive so we make a detour to the Costa Brava to enjoy beers and ice cream at Lloret De Mar before heading off. The final party and award ceremony will be held at a lively sports bar on Las Ramblas.
