Join Team CHSW and fundraise for us in this year's Banger Rally Challenge!
This is an opportunity of a lifetime and will be a trip to remember, driving on some of Europe's finest and most scenic roads. The only snag is your car has to only cost around £500 to be entered in to the Banger Rally category or you may just like to drive a more expensive vehicle which will not be eligible for the prize money, but you can still raise money for charity. There are only 150 spaces so be quick and don't miss out!
What about the costs?
The cost is £295 based on two people sharing a car and additional passengers will be charged at £90 per person. Entrance fee includes welcoming and finishing party, t-shirts, suggested route plan, daily quiz and challenges, car stickers, finishers medal, camping, and your own team leader who will look after you on the entirety of the rally…well sort of!

Latest event news
Fundraising is a fantastic way to get involved with Children's Hospice South West and provides us with an essential source of income. Without the wonderful support of our fundraisers we would not be able to continue offering the wide range of vital services that we currently offer to our families and children.
Your registration fee covers the cost of your participation in this event but your sponsorship will help us to deliver our promise to ‘make the most of short and precious lives across the South West’.
Fundraising ideas and support
We have a dedicated community fundraising team who are here to support you, and we have lots of really fun ideas to raise money to help you smash your own personal fundraising targets.
The Rally will start on Saturday 28 September leaving St Austell, Cornwall at approximately 5.00pm and finishing in Pompeii, Italy on Thursday 3 October. Followed by an optional Boat Cruise around the Islands on Friday 4 October. To keep you and your passengers amused there will be several challenges set along the route to earn bonus points, but if you just want to cruise through the countryside without taking part in them that's just as cool with us too.
It's not a race
Pllease remember rule #1, this is categorically not a race across Europe, but a leisurely drive by like-minded people and there will be no advantage in arriving first.
Points mean Prizes
Managing to coax your chosen Banger to the finish point should be rewarding enough. At the final night's presentation a share of over £3500 worth of cash prize’s & trophies will be awarded to the teams scoring the most points in each of the daily stages; the various different category winners, and of course the Overall Rally Winner! An additional prize of £300 will be awarded for the most imaginative/decorated car and their occupants although every one who takes part is a winner and each participant will be awarded a fantastic medal memento on finishing. Full details of the route and stop-over points will only be released on each day of the rally to make this even more of a challenge
