About Mission Impossible
Crumball Rally's "Mission Impossible", is a banger rally very loosely themed on the films of the Tom Cruise secret agent Ethan Hunt and has been a favourite since it was launched in 2009 and subsequently sold out in 2012, 2013 and 2016. Taking place over a long weekend it passes through France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and Germany onto the final destination of Prague, the fabulous city epitomised in the first of the "MI" films.
The route throws in the usual "hurdles", in order to make completing the event at least a “Mission Improbable”, including the challenge of one of the "world's best driving roads", the legendary 'Stelvio Pass'. and plenty of opportunity for eating, drinking and socialising away the evenings.
Mission Impossible Route
The "Mission Impossible" rally is designed to provide a fun but challenging route from NW France to Prague. The rally itself lasts 3 days, although like all our events you will of course need to allow time to get to the start, which for this event is in Reims (which is 2.5 hours drive from Calais or Boulogne).
Aside from the fine scenery offered by alpine mountains and lakes, we follow the medieval cultural route in Southern Germany, which includes the magical Neuschwanstein (the inspiration for Walt Disney's fantasy Disneyland castle).
The event finishes with an awards ceremony in Prague city centre on the Sunday, giving teams the opportunity to either scrap the cars before flying home on Monday, (or driving back if they so choose). A route summary to challenge and punish your chosen chariot is below.
Day 1: Reims to Chur (Approximately 400 miles)
We will all meet in a large car park on the outskirts of Reims at 8.30am where all the teams can admire / laugh / take bets on the durability of each other’s vehicles! The first days route will take us through the gentle rolling countryside of the Champagne and Alsace regions of France before heading into the Swiss Alpine mountains to the picturesque city of Chur.
Day 2: Chur to Fussen (Approximately 250 miles)
Today, after an optional toboggan ride on the world famous Pradaschier toboggan run at over 3.1 km long, we set out straight into a series of mountain passes, culminating in the awesome Stelvio Pass. Once your brakes (and nerves) have recovered we'll then be heading north again through Austria onto the cobbled streets of the German lakeside town of Fussen.
Day 3: Fussen to Prague (Approximately 300 miles)
Starting in Fussen, with the backdrop of the Neuschwanstein castle, the route winds its way to the medieval city of Regensburg, before heading over the Czech border onto Prague, for the final party and awards ceremony!
