Our Sheffield Senior Technician, Alec Rhodes, is taking on the 2017 Wacky Rally. This fantastic banger rally is a four day course which takes you in the amazing Swiss Alps, rolling hills of Italy, French Riviera and the Spanish Catalan capital. Alec embarks on his adventure early next month and we wish him the best of luck!
A banger rally is a collection of vehicles that have been personalised in a variety of imaginative and crazy ways. However, doing up the car is incredibly fun but driving it across Europe is where the real fun begins. Don't be fooled, as this is no holiday. The rally is extremely fun but it is also a great challenge with a variety of obstacles. One thing you must understand about this rally is that it's not a race in any way, shape or form. This is not a poor man's gumball or a thinly disguised dart along the autobahns in a cheap motor. This, ladies and gentleman, is a fun, all inclusive jolly for people who enjoy a challenge and maybe a drink or two along the way. And even if you don't drink there are always like minded people along for the ride.
Here are some photos of the car leading up to the rally:
