Listen very carefully! Another uniquely themed event run for the first time in 2009, the Crumball Rally Co presented “‘Allo ‘Allo”, a banger rally drawing inspiration from arguably the best British tv comedy series ever. In a break from the usual Crumball tradition, instead of requiring everyone to turn up in a painted-up £200 banger, on this event we welcomed anyone to come in any type of car. (Since the route also starts and ends near ferry ports with easy access to Blighty, the usual formula of “scrap the car and get a cheap single flight back” did not apply).
The route went as far south as Macon, capital of the Beaujolais region, before heading north again through Luxembourg and Belgium, and onto the “Venice of the North”, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bruges for the Sunday evening presentation night.
