Crumball Rally

About Mission Impossible

A driving tour that won't cost you a fortune in time or money, but will give you a trip to remember, driving on some of Europe's finest roads (in some of Europe's worst cars!).

While we may not give you an M.I. opportunity to "Save the World", likewise we don't make charity fund raising a condition of entry.

Eligible vehicles are bangers valued in theory at £200 or less, although you can spend as much as you want blinging it up (or preferably making it roadworthy!).

How long is it and when will it take place?

3 days for the rally itself. Allowing for a days travel to the start, and another day to dispose of your car and fly home, 3 days driving on the event itself is probably just about enough!

The Rally itself includes 3 days actual driving, starting at 9am on Friday 27th July 2018 in Reims and ends on Sunday 29th July in Prague.

Support en route

Sorry but no! Surely you really wouldn’t appreciate it if we deprived you of the uncertainty each day on whether your chosen vehicle will start in the morning let alone break down miles from anywhere, on a mountain pass in a strange country! Our advice is to travel light, and the less of you that are in the car, the easier it will be to thumb a lift with the other Crumballers.

Crumball Rally does not offer any support (aside from a sympathetic ear if you break down). So if you're concerned about conking out miles from anywhere, we strongly recommend you organise European breakdown cover for yourself.

What do you do each day besides driving?

Aside from the ever present challenge of hoping your chosen chariot doesn’t "self-destruct in the next 5 seconds", we give you and your passengers a couple of tasks to perform en route, but if you just want to "tom cruise" through the countryside without taking part then that's fine by us. Remember rule number 1,...this is categorically not a race across Europe, but a leisurely drive by likeminded people, and there will be no advantage in arriving first.

The challenge of coaxing your vehicle to the finish point should be reward enough but at the final night's presentation ceremony, a cash prize will be awarded to the team scoring the most in the daily tasks and an additional prize will also be awarded by vote for the best themed car (or lurid paint scheme!), and at the organisers discretion any other categories that take our fancy. Everyone is really a winner and each participant will also be provided with medal memento on finishing.


Details of the general route can be seen on the route page and stop over points and other stuff will be advised via facebook and sent to you when you register so that you can book your accommodation in advance. Approximately a month before the start of the rally we will send you your rally guide which will contain final route details etc. and any advance task requirements (!) etc..
