GPS: We ask you to refrain from using navigation systems and GPS devices. You don’t need them. Driving by map is a lot more fun and the rally becomes more of an adventure.
Accommodation: Whether you go wild camping, sleep in the car or in a hotel, decide on bed & breakfast, is entirely up to you. The main thing is that you are rested the next day. The daily stages are exhausting.
Party: There will be receptions at all bridges and our big European party (including BBQ and DJ, limited double room booking possible at a special price) nearby Bordeaux. We have of course come up with something special for the finish in Solingen. Let yourself be surprised!
Charity: Hopefully we are all fine and that’s a good thing. But wouldn’t it be nice if others were fine too? That is why we want you to collect donations for a project you have chosen. Whether it is a children’s hospice, an animal shelter or an environmental organization is up to you. Ask your friends, ask your employer, ask other companies. The amount donated will also be included in the final result.
Roadbook: You will receive a roadbook from us at the start. It describes the route, goals and tasks that you should complete during the rally. Drive the route you want, do the tasks you want. The rally should please you and take place at your own pace. Completing all tasks is not impossible, but it is sporty.
Rallye branding: 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, plus a rally t-shirt and other merchandise for each participant.
Award ceremony: A rally without an award ceremony is not possible! Therefore, of course, we also have prizes for the first three places. These places are determined by points. You get these points for completing tasks from the road book (1 point per successfully completed task).
But there are also points for the age of your car or motorcycle. The older your car or motorcycle, the more points your team gets (year of construction 2001 = 0 points, year of construction 2000 = 0.5 point, year of construction 1999 = 1 point, 1998 = 1.5 points, etc.). Electric cars don’t get points for their age.
