THE FIREBALL RALLIES
We are Charity Rally Specialists and ‘The Fireball Rally ‘ was created to allow individuals & small teams to join together for an economical and exciting tour through Europe. The Challenge of reaching many countries in a week creates a HIGH FOCUS on sponsorship for your Chosen Charity. ‘Take the 8 Counties Challenge – 8 Countries in 4 days’ for your charity
Although not a race, you will be given the Sat Nav Coordinates for each leg of the rally, usually the next evenings Campsite, where we all meet up again and share our stories of bravery or discoveries. During the day, you can use any route you desire, allowing you to enjoy the Crazy Culture of our European Cousins who always have interesting things to see, visit or experience, and with the exception of the James Bond’s Switzerland Rally, we will spend at least one full day at our destination. You will remember this one week as a Fireballer for the rest of your life.

Accommodation costs are included in our joining fee.
As Charity Rally Specialists, the Fireball Rally strives to make your trip very exciting, very enjoyable and Real Value for Money so each night’s accommodation is included in our Rally Fee.
With the exception of the James Bond’s Switzerland Run, every Rally will always Stop for at least One whole Day at the Prime Destination for you to really enjoy it.
Why a circular route?
With any journey or adventure, you’ll always want to come back home. The Fireball Rally and The Fireball Run always complete a circular route that goes to our prime destination, AND brings you back again, which simply extends our time and enjoyment even further.
The idea of just going on a one way trip to a destination to leave your car behind, and fly back is great if you’re taking an ambulance to a third world country for them to use….BUT not in Europe??? To try and sell your right hand drive car in left hand drive Europe is nuts, and then have to book a flight back seems to be poor way to end an exciting adventure – OR drive back with the trouble and expense (between £60 – £190 per night) of finding a bed for the night, every night, on your way back home, and alone, in a foreign country. The Fireball Rally route will always continue back to Calais and provide a campsite for each night of the rally along the route.
Channel Crossing (not included)
As all the rallies begin in Calais and finishes in Calais, you can choose any method to get there. Both P&O Ferries and Euro Tunnel would be an obvious choice, but please don’t let me stop your creative endeavours. Whilst this is not included in the Fee, we do negotiate a discount every year with the Ferry company. All up to date details on Ferry dates, times of sailing and getting your discount can be found on our Facebook Fireball Rally Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fireballrallygroup/ in the ‘Pinned Post’ at the top of the page. Any difficulties at all in claiming your discount, please ring me 07976 362436.
We have six pages of ‘Top Tips’ in our Famous Information Pack from how to get the FREE use of a car, to really great prices ( £38) on European Breakdown Recovery- (your car back to Britain & use of a hire car) to Ferry discounts for all on the rally, to what medical entitlements you have abroad. The Fireball Rally really does more. You’ll always find us at the end of a phone for advice, queries or just to give you some encouragement: 24/7 during the Rally and between 11am – 8pm at other times 07976 362436.
Why Camping? (Included)
We only use quality Campsites – Clean Hot Showers and Toilets and mostly with swimming pools. We choose campsites that are on the sides of beautiful lakes or even the Mediterranean Sea wherever possible, and with the Fireball Rally, the campsites are FREE to you, which makes the Fireball Rally very affordable as well as fun. You’ll need to beg, borrow or even buy a tent and sleeping bag for your adventure abroad but what a fantastic week you’ll have with your fellow Fireballers.
DID YOU KNOW: you can do a similar rally, but uses hotels throughout and visits the Munich Oktoberfest GT Rally – Oktoberfest
What you need – the minimum
1. A friend to go with and your own everyday car …….. or a friend with a car …… everything good in life is always better shared
2. A SatNav ….. you can use maps but a Sat Nav covering all the countries on the Rally will get you to the exact road you need.
3. With the Fireball Rally, the campsites are FREE to you, which makes the Fireball Rally very affordable as well as fun. You’ll need to beg, borrow or buy a tent and sleeping bag for your adventure abroad but what a fantastic week you’ll have with your fellow Fireballers.

2. The Most Unlikely Car Trophy. The most unlikely car to actually achieve success, you might want to allow your creative imagination free with many pots of paint.
