The Concept behind Wacky Rally
Essentially a banger rally is a collection of vehicles that have been purchased or otherwise obtained through various ingenious methods, and then personalised in a variety of glorious and imaginative ways. Ideas range from the Bat Mobile, animals of various denominations, and pirate ships to hippy cars, tanks, and crazy paint jobs.
However, that is the nuts and bolts; doing up the car is incredibly fun but driving it across Europe is where the real fun begins. The shared challenge, the camaraderie and the memorable stories are what make the wacky rally, Europe's favourite car rally, a trip you'll remember for the rest of your life.
Rarely will you experience the freedom and "Devil may care" attitude that comes part and parcel of the rally, couple this with some of Europe's most stunning scenery and you have something special.
The Reality of the rally
Don't be fooled, this is no holiday. The banger rally is extremely fun but it's also a great challenge. Obstacles are part and parcel of the rally and the bond you will have with your fellow driver/s can only be described as a two year relationship rolled into four days.
One thing you must understand about this banger rally is that it's not a race in any way, shape or form. This is not a poor man's gumball or a thinly disguised dart along the autobahns in a cheap motor. This, ladies and gentleman, is a fun, all inclusive jolly for people who enjoy a challenge and maybe a drink or two along the way. And even if you don't drink there are always like minded people along for the ride.
The People on the rally
The Wacky Rally car rally is for anyone and everyone, from company directors, city workers, policemen and women, housewives, couples and builders to shelf stackers, unemployed, blue chip management, firemen, armed forces, nurses.... the list is endless. The important thing to know is it doesn't matter what you do as long as you are here to respect yourself and others on the rally.
