      Travelling vehicle:

      Any car or motorbike older than 15 years (as of 31 December 2009) may take part in the rally. Electric cars may also take part without age restriction. It must comply with the road traffic regulations, have a valid MOT for the duration of the rally and have a regular licence plate, a seasonal licence plate or a red number.

       

      Participants per vehicle:

      Each team may register as many riders as the number of registered seats in the car or motorbike.

      Road book:

      You will receive a road book from us at the start. This describes the route, destinations and tasks that you have to complete during the rally. Drive the route as you wish, complete the tasks you want. You should enjoy the rally and complete it at your own pace. Completing all the tasks is not impossible, but it is very challenging.

      Route:

      The route leads through 8 countries, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Luxembourg. Unless otherwise specified, we recommend travelling on country roads. You want to see something of the country and its people. The roads are 95% tarmac, but there are also stretches on gravel. The routes are long and strenuous. It can happen that a day's stage means that you are travelling for 10 - 11 hours.

      Navigation:

      We ask you to do without sat navs and GPS devices if possible. You don't really need them. Travelling by map is much more fun and the rally becomes more of an adventure. The maps should be on a scale of 1: 150,000 or 1: 200,000 at most.

      Accommodation:

      Whether you go glamping or wild camping, sleep in your car, stay in a hotel or opt for bed & breakfast is entirely up to you. The main thing is that you are well rested the next day. The daily stages are strenuous. However, you cannot book in advance; you will only find out where your destination and therefore your sleeping place is with the road book.

      We recommend that you always book your accommodation for the next night during the course of the day. This is easy to do with your smartphone. (e.g. booking.com)

      Rally branding:

      Shortly before the rally you will receive a parcel from us. In this pack you will find your stickers with your start number (2 pieces) and the rally logo (3 pieces), as well as a rally T-shirt per participant and other merchandise.

      Party:

      Our bridge partners organise a reception for you at each bridge, sometimes bigger - sometimes smaller. But always with a lot of heart.

      We then invite you to our Europe party. We always come up with something very special for you.

      Of course, we have also come up with something special for the finish in Solingen. Let us surprise you!

      Charity:

      Even if it is voluntary, we would be very happy if you collected donations for a project of your choice. Whether it's a children's hospice, an animal shelter or an environmental organisation is up to you. Ask your friends, ask your employer, ask other companies - the more you collect, the more good you do. The amount donated will also be included in the final result.

      You can collect donations via betterpace.org (or similar) or directly to the organisation's account, or you can talk to your bank to see if they will provide you with a donation account.

      Award ceremony:

      You can't have a rally without an award ceremony! That's why we also award prizes for the first three places. These places are determined by points. You get these points by completing tasks from the road book (1 point per successfully completed task).

      There are also points for the age of your car or motorbike. The older your car or motorbike, the more points your team receives (at least 15 years old = year of construction 2009, e.g. your car is from 2010 = 0.1 points or year of construction 2004 = 0.5 points or year of construction 1982 = 2.7 points etc.).

      In addition, 0.2 points are awarded for every 1,000.00 euros donated.

      Live tracking:

      We will use a smart tracker on your smartphone to enable your family, friends and colleagues to follow you during the rally and see where you are at all times.

      With the kind support of Find Penguin.
