Why A Banger Rally Is The Perfect Getaway
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you love cars and driving? Do you have a sense of adventure? Do you want a holiday with a difference?

If you answered yes to those questions then I believe I may have the perfect solution for you;

Enter a Banger Rally.

What is a Banger Rally I hear you ask?!

Put simply a Banger Rally is a 1300+ mile road trip in a car that costs less than £300 that takes place over the course of 4 or 5 days. Your car, or 'banger', should be decorated in some sort of theme and fancy dress is a good optional extra!

Every day has a start and finish point. It is up to teams to figure out the route to get from A to B each day. As you drive to your destination each day you will be set fun challenges.

The team that accrues the most points by the end of the banger rally wins a substantial cash prize. There are usually various other prizes as well for example, the team with the best car.

What Route Do You Take On A Banger Rally?

Each banger rally has its own unique route. Many rallies take place in Europe, beginning near the ferry ports of Calais or Brugges.

An example Banger Rally Route:

  • Day 1 - Calais - Nurburg (with a chance to take your banger on the Nurburgring)
  • Day 2 - Nurburg - Innsbruck
  • Day 3 - Innsbruck - Maranello (via the 9000ft high Stelvio Pass in The Alps and a chance to visit the Ferrari museum in Maranello)
  • Day 4 - Maranello - Rome

As you can see the route of this banger rally is varied. The Stelvio Pass was named by the BBCs Top Gear as the best driving road in Europe!

It is possible to save money by travelling abroad and take part in a banger rally in Great Britain as well.

An example Banger Rally route in Great Britain:

  • Day 1 - Cardiff - Colwyn Bay (through Welsh mountains)
  • Day 2 - Colwyn Bay - Newcastle (great party city)
  • Day 3 - Newcastle - Inverness (Through the stunning Scottish Highlands)
  • Day 4 - Inverness to Keswick (From Highlands to the mountainous Lake District)

As you can see from those examples above a banger rally really takes in stunning scenery and driving roads both in Britain and in Europe.

A banger rally really is an experience that you and your friends will never ever forget. And it is a nice fun change from laying on a beach bored out of your mind.

If you love driving then a banger rally is something to do at least once in your life!
