Crumball Rally
THUNDERCRAWL

About Thundercrawl

A sell-out driving tour in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2014 and 2016 that won't cost you a fortune but will give you a trip to remember, driving on some of Europe's finest roads (in some of Europe's worst cars!).

Diamonds might be forever but your car certainly won't last that long as you can only spend up to £200, so it is really a bit of an endurance event.

Thundercrawl Route

The Thundercrawl Rally is themed loosely on the Bond films, and so the route takes in some of the more memorable locations from some of the films (and plenty more besides), en-route to Venice.

Day 1: Reims to Thun (Approximately 350 miles)

The first day’s route is a long one but it takes us through France to Switzerland, ending by the picturesque lakeside town and castle of Thun.

Day 2: Thun to Lake Maggiore (Approximately 170 miles)

On the second day the mileage is much shorter as we head into the Alps, stopping off at Blofeld's mountain-top lair from on "Her Majesty's Secret Service", now a famous revolving restaurant, before driving over the stunning Grimsel and Furka passes, where Goldfinger was chased by James in the iconic DB5, onto the scenic shores of Lake Maggiore in Italy.

Day 3: Verzasca Dam to Venice (Approximately 230 miles)

Starting the day by the Verzasca Dam, scene of the death defying bungee jump at the beginning of Goldeneye (now the 2nd highest permanent public bungee jump in the world only exceeded by 13 metres by the Macau Tower). Anyone who wants to be "shaken and steered" on this event is welcome to have a go, before getting back in the car to head through the Italian Lakes towards Venice, scene of Casino Royale and the powered gondola chase from Moonraker. For those who make it this far, where better to enjoy a Martini at the awards presentation and party!
