Ihr bekommt am Start ein Roadbook von uns. Darin sind die Strecke, Ziele und Aufgaben, die Ihr während der Rallye erledigen sollt, beschrieben. Fahrt die Strecke, wie Ihr sie möchtet, erledigt die Aufgaben, die Ihr möchtet. Die Rallye soll Euch gefallen und in Eurem Tempo stattfinden. Alle Aufgaben zu erledigen ist nicht unmöglich, aber sehr sportlich.
The route leads through 9 countries, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg and Belgium. We recommend that you drive on country roads unless otherwise specified. You want to see something of the country and its people. The roads are 95% asphalt, but there are also stretches over gravel and potholes. The routes are long and strenuous. It can happen that a daily stage means that you are on the road for 10 – 11 hours.
We ask you to do without navigation systems and GPS devices. You don’t need them. Drive by map, it’s much more fun and the rally becomes more of an adventure. The maps should be on a scale of 1:100,000 or 1:150,000.
Whether you go glamping or wild camping, sleep in the car, stay in a hotel or opt for bed & breakfast is entirely up to you. The main thing is that you are rested the next day. The daily stages are strenuous. However, it is not possible to book in advance; you will only find out with the road book where the destination and thus your sleeping place is.
We recommend that you always book your accommodation for the next night during the course of the day. This can be done easily with your smartphone.
Shortly before the rally, you will receive a package from us. In this package you will find your stickers with your start number and the rally logo, as well as a rally T-shirt per participant and other merchandise.
There will be receptions at all bridges and our big Europe party (incl. BBQ and DJ, limited DR booking possible at a special price) near Bordeaux. For the arrival in Solingen we have of course come up with something special. Let us surprise you!
We would like you to collect donations for a project of your choice. Whether it is a children’s hospice, an animal shelter or an environmental organisation is up to you. As the Müngsten Bridge is very important to us, please donate 20% of your donations to the Friends of the Müngsten Bridge World Heritage Site. The association urgently needs your support. IBAN number DE05 3425 0000 0001 8805 74 at Stadt-Sparkasse Solingen, subject “Six Bridges Rally”. The association will also issue receipts for donations. Ask your friends, ask your employer, ask other companies, the more you collect, the more good you do. The amount donated will also be included in the final result.
You can’t have a rally without an award ceremony! That’s why, of course, we also have prizes for the first three places. These places are determined by points. You get these points by completing tasks from the road book (1 point per successfully completed task).
But there are also points for the age of your car or motorbike. The older your car or motorbike, the more points your team gets (year of construction 2007 = 0 points, year of construction 2006 = 0.1 points, year of construction 2005 = 0.2 points, 1950 = 5.7 points, etc.).
In addition, for every 1,000.00 euros donated, 0.2 points will be added to the final score.
We will enable you via smart-tracker on your smartphone that your families, friends and colleagues can follow you at the rally and see where you are at any time.
