Welcome to The Crumball Rally Co, (Est.2006), 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 (and possibly a tool kit) as you and your team crunch the miles in a banger costing no more than a measly £200! Alternatively, if you have a small engine roadster in the garage (or need an excuse to buy one!), our Italian Job event is now open to a second class of car: ‘Ragtops’, which we define as any open topped two seater with an engine capacity up to 2500cc.
Plenty of people complete the events for charity, with many tens of thousands already raised for local and national causes. Others just like an excuse to paint and customize their chosen vehicles and party their way through Europe. Whatever your motivation, you can be sure of a long weekend to remember!
Our original and most popular rally, (fully booked whenever it’s been run - 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011), this route takes its inspiration from the classic 1969 crime caper and returns again for 2013. Due to popular demand this event is open to both bangers (costing no more than £200) and ‘Ragtops’ (2 seater convertibles up to 2.5 litres of any age).
Taking in France, Switzerland and Italy in 3 days, we’ll be visiting several of the key film settings including the incredible St. Bernard Pass and the City of Turin, before heading onto Monte Carlo via the spectacular scenery of the Col du Tende, and then Nice for the Finish.
Are you up for it….of course you are… If so then “get your skates on mate” and come and join us as we take on the mafia and the Turin traffic.
Returning for the second year running, (following a sell-out both times it’s previously run - 2009 and 2012) 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 and join us for a trip to remember.
