A Banger Rally is the challenge of taking a car which has seen better days on a journey to fulfill it’s destiny!
It’s not all about being behind the wheel though, we’ll pass by and stop at some amazing places, there’ll be numerous daily challenges, and plenty of opportunity to party the nights away! At the end of it all there’ll be new friends and plenty of stories to dine out on… a road trip like no other that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

Where is each Rally?

Northern Lights

…2017 is Boom’s fifth year, and true to form we are launching our fifth route! Not any old route though, we’ve surpassed ourselves again! Just when we thought we couldn’t find anything more challenging, we’re off to the Arctic!

Day 1: Starting in Amsterdam on Sunday gives teams the opportunity to spend Saturday in one of Europe’s best cities before registration. Leaving The Netherlands we head to the most Northern point in Germany and then the Northern tip of Denmark!

Day 2 – 5: We cross into Norway by ferry where we will spend the rest of the rally, heading North, and further North, and even further North as it gets colder, more cold and even more cold! We will encounter some of the most stunning scenery you’ll see anywhere in the World passing through the Fjordlands,
and as the name suggests you may even be lucky enough to see the Northern Lights,
Aurora Borealis!

Benelux Blitz

…a huge success when it was introduced last year, this is our alternative three day European jaunt. The route is concentrated in the North and as the name suggests passes through Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg (not in that order), with Germany thrown in for good measure, all in three days!

Day 1: Starting in beautiful Bruges we head South to claim the ‘lux’ in Benelux before ending the day at the famous Nurburgring! Dates have been carefully chosen to give those who’d like to drive the track the best chance to do so.

Day 2: First stop today is the outstanding Sinsheim Museum. The route then takes us through stunning scenery as we head to Mohnesee, and one of the dams destroyed by the Dambusters.  The day ends in picturesque Munster where a few stories will be shared over ‘ein beer’ or two!

Day 3: A relatively short day today via historic Arnhem to Amsterdam, what better city to host our closing party and awards ceremony? Before you relax though, there may just be one twist which could make all the difference…

The Cosmopolitan Classic

…is indeed our very own original classic European Rally. You will take in France, Switzerland,
Italy and Monaco in 3 days.

Day 1: Starting in Le Mans these days, we make a stop in Paris and end the day in stunning Beaune, Capital of the Burgundy Region.

Day 2: We head into the Alps with some of the most spectacular scenery and awesome roads Europe has to offer. After negotiating both the Grand and Petit St Bernhard passes we party in Val D’Isere.

Day 3: Unfinished business in the mountains as we pass over the Col d’Iseran, and then find out whether your gamble has paid off as we finish on the beach in Nice, via the glitz and glamour of Monte Carlo!

The Marrakech Express

This route takes us South through Europe but will give you the ultimate bragging rights when you drive your banger into Africa! You’ll be driving through France, Andorra, Spain, Gibraltar and Morocco in five days.

Day 1: Starting in Reims, the original home of the French Grand Prix, we make our way south via the stunning scenery of the French wine lands to Millau and the awesome Millau Bridge.

Day 2: A Great mountain drive today through The Pyrenees via Andorra
to one of Europe’s best cities, Barcelona.

Day 3: We pass through some of the famous Spanish Costas to Alicante.

Day 4: Heading home from home to Gibraltar, to continue our monkeying around!

Day 5: Finally we cross over to the Dark Continent and roll into the hustle and bustle of amazing Marrakech, AFRICA!

*It is not possible to import cars more than 5 years old into Morocco, so all Teams MUST drive back out to dispose of them. We have contacts in Gibraltar who can assist.

Turkish Delight

…The route takes us East through Europe ending in Istanbul, the crossroads of civilisation and most importantly where Europe meets Asia! You’ll be driving through France, Switzerland, Italy, (a tenuous Slovenia), Croatia, (an even more tenuous Bosnia and Herzegovina), Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Turkey in seven days!
***Due to recent terrorism in Turkey, before departure our 2016 rally was re-routed to Athens***

Day 1: Much like Marrakech Express we host our grandstand launch in Reims at the old pit buildings of the original French Grand Prix track. The first day sees us head from here to Zurich.

Day 2: Our trademark mountain day, but this time there’s no comparison – it’s the Stelvio! Onwards the shores of Lake Garda to celebrate.

Day 3: A relatively short driving day allows us to spend some quality time in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities – Venice. We guarantee you will see all it has to offer before carrying on to our final destination Trieste.

Day 4: For the ‘Country collectors’ make sure you stay alert today! Almost as soon as we leave Trieste we briefly pass through Slovenia, all 34 miles of it’s entire coastline, before entering Croatia. Then later in the day after entering Montenegro, it’s an even more ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ moment as we pass through Bosnia and Herzegovina before arriving in stunning Dubrovnik.

Day 5: Albania today, but you should be taking these less travelled places in your stride by now! Another fantastic coastal drive ending up in lively Saranda.

Day 6: Thessaloniki for some Greek sun, sand and spark plugs. ***Unless ending in Athens***

Day 7: Finally we cross into our tenth and final country of the Rally, Turkey and our final destination Istanbul to everyone’s delight!

 *Once again as we strive to be more exotic we are surprisingly faced with diplomatic issues. You may think the Turks would jump at the chance of taking your Rover 200 Series off your hands on arrival but sadly this isn’t the case! It is not possible to import cars into Turkey, so all Teams MUST drive back out to dispose of them. We recommend this is done in Thessaloniki where there are also regular flights back to the UK from here.
