1st night … Pre Rally Briefing Thursday EVENING 24th May
The Superhero’s meet in Kent
Meet and greet from 6pm ……Our first night in this truly lovely Kent Campsite. Time here for introductions, where all the Fireball Rally Drivers and Navigators from around Britain meet each other and are issued with their Car Decals. This will be the first rally for some, so an overall briefing of the Rally will be given at 7pm in the Bar, including more detailed information on tomorrows leg of the rally. Map coordinates and Sat Nav coordinates will be explained here along with more information on setting your Sat Navs for the assault on Europe as not every mountain has a post code. As we’re in the bar area, we’ll all enjoy a couple of quizzes for teams to check their knowledge on continental driving……. and what you don’t know, you’ll find out here. The excitement and anticipation of a great adventure begins here along with meeting fellow adventurers who will become your good friends.
The Rally begins tomorrow at the very moment your car tyres drive onto French soil.
Day 1… Friday 25th Calais to Switzerland
The Rally begins – and there’s time for Versailles or Romantic Paris
and as we’re driving past Switzerland, why not drop in and say ‘Hello’ to Freddie Mercury’s statue on the banks of Lake Geneva.
Day 2… Saturday 26th Switzerland to the French Riviera
Driving through France, this is wine making country, and there are vineyards to be visited, wine to be tasted and enjoyment to be had.
Congratulations, after two days of driving, you have Arrived and Completed the Outward Leg of the famous Fireball Monte Carlo Rally…….Stage 2, later on, will take us all home again, but for now it’s the Mediterranean Sea, the French Riviera and fellow Fireballers .
Day 3… Sunday 27th Monte Carlo
We’re here for two nights, just enough time to enjoy the Monaco Grand Prix, which looks as though it was organised especially for us to enjoy and using the Capital’s (Monte Carlo) roads as the Race Track.
If Formula One Racing isn’t your thing, take a leisurely drive along the French Riviera and Top up your Tan in the sands of St Tropez and sunbathe in the glow of Bridget Bardot and the Jet Set .
Day 4… Monday 28th Monaco to Pisa
We travel along the French and Italian Riviera’s to Pisa. You could take the Grand Corniche, a road built by Napoleon and the place where Princess Grace of Monaco lost her life, and it also features in Quantum of Solice as 007 loses the drivers door of his Aston Martin in very dramatic style.
THE ICONIC LEANING TOWER OF PISA.
Leaning since the thirteenth century, survived numerous wars and remains a stunning white. Don’t you think it’s about time you gave it a PUSH?
Don’t miss the Magnificent Ferrari Museum just outside Pisa. We’ll give you the coordinates just like everywhere else. We don’t want you to miss a thing.
Ferrari 458 Italia
You can take part in the Ferrari Racing Simulator. This is a palace to pay homage to Ferrari ….love them or hate them, they have made a huge impact on modern car design.
Day 5… Tuesday 29th Pisa to Lichtenstein
Heading towards Liechtenstein, you can divert a little if you choose and drive the awe inspiring Stelvio Pass, a real ‘Top Gear’ rated pass – you’ll never complain about boring straight roads or buildings ever again..
The people of the stunning little Principality of Liechtenstein officially live longer than anywhere else on Earth. It might be due to not being in the EU, or it could be the Tax Haven savings, but here’s your chance to buy Brand New, Duty Free Goods ………. perhaps you’ll live a little longer knowing you had a bargain. There’s a Cable Car that takes you to a Golf Course with the finest views and coffee in the Club House … All are welcome
Day 6…Wednesday 30th Liechtenstein to Nurburgring
The Museums of Porsche and Mercedes are both in Stuttgart which just happens to be on our exact way as we travel north ……… You won’t be disappointed, they’re magnificent and a fantastic tribute to German engineering and design!!!
Porsche 919 Le Mans winner
AMG GT3 0 to 60 in 3 Seconds
Then onto our last campsite which is truely amazing. Although we cannot guarantee it, the Nurburgring race track should be open as a track day. Latest information can always be gleaned at http://www.nurburgring.org.uk/prices.php
This is the final evening together and it’s also The Fireball Rally Awards evening with Certificate and Trophies to be presented.
a) Most money gained for their chosen charity
b) Best and most interesting costume worn every day, all day
c) The most amazing Car Creation regardless of it’s age.
d) The most unlikeliest car to make it round.
Day 7… Thursday 31st – Back to Calais
Make haste into the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, one of Europe’s smallest Countries where you’ll get more fuel for your Euro, then off to Belgium as you find time for a last drink in the historic medieval Brugges, a magnificent and beautiful town that serves you Flemish food from one of it’s many ‘people watching’ cafe’s or restaurants that flank the ancient square. What a great way to enjoy this final leg of the rally.
The Square in Medieval Brugges
