Welcome to The Crumball Rally Co, the original organiser of budget classic and banger car rallies inspired by some of your favourite car and driving films.
Taking in some of the most stunning locations and awesome roads in Europe, our events guarantee a stimulating drive.
But it's not just about being behind the wheel... you'll need a sense of adventure, humour (and possibly a toolkit) as you and your team have to crunch the miles either in a banger costing no more than a measly £200, or a small engine convertible.
Plenty of people complete the events for charity, while others just like an excuse to paint and customise their chosen bangers and party their way through Europe. Whatever your motivation, you can be sure of a long weekend to remember!
Returning for the fourth time, (following a sell-out in 2009 and 2012 and 2013) is the "Mission Impossible" rally, an event loosely themed on the films of the Tom Cruise secret agent Ethan Hunt. Taking place over a long weekend in July it will pass through France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany onto the final destination of Prague, the fabulous city epitomised in the first of the "MI" films.
The route will throw in the usual "hurdles", in order to make completing the event at least a "Mission Improbable", including the challenge of one of Top Gear's "World's best driving roads", the legendary "Stelvio Pass" and an opportunity to have a go on Europe's longest dry toboggan run at over 3km.
Aside from the fine scenery offered by alpine mountains and lakes, we'll be following the medieval cultural route in Southern Germany, which includes the magical Neuschwanstein (the inspiration for Walt Disney's fantasy Disneyland castle).
As if coaxing your car fifteen hundred miles across some of Europe's toughest and most scenic roads was not enough, there will be the usual "light hearted" daily tasks, and plenty of opportunity for eating, drinking and socialising away the evenings.
Are you up for it?...whether you do it for charity, for the challenge, or simply for a bit of fun, get yourself a banger or a ‘ragtop’ and join us for a trip to remember.
After a sell-out in 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2014, The Crumball Rally Co once again presents "Thundercrawl", our banger rally themed on the films of the world's favourite secret agent. Taking place over a long weekend in September it will pass through France, Switzerland and Italy onto the fabulous city of Venice, the final location from the film "Casino Royale". On the way we'll be visiting several of the most famous film settings including Blofeld's mountain lair (now a revolving restaurant) from "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", the Dam where Bond performs one of the world's highest bungee jumps in "Goldeneye", and the mountain passes where Goldfinger is chased in the DB5.
But it's not just about driving......the scenery is fantastic and of course you've got to complete it in a car costing no more than £200.
Are you up for it...of course you are....remember "you only live twice" so come and join us for a trip to remember.
