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’ :- that’s 8 Countries in 4 days’ for your charity, and some amazing destinations for you to marvel at.

Whether you take your own everyday car for reliability, OR decide to really commit to the Challenge and create a wondrous work of art with a car worth less than £900 – this will be your choice. 

There are Trophies to be won: so a few trophy winning Crazy Cars shown here to inspire you.  

Mad Max – AKA Mark & Mick

SPITFIRE flown by Tom & Sam

The Kirkthorpe Cavemen  who were voted by their peers to have the most ‘Impressive Fancy Dress’, ‘The Most Impressive Car Art’ and raised £1000’s for the Burns Unit in Kirkthorpe.

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 2 exceptions of the ‘James Bond’s Switzerland Run’ & ‘The Run to The Sun’, we will spend at least one full day at our  destination.  You will remember this Challenge as a Fireballer for the rest of your life.   

In 2019 we featured on the ITV News, see the story in the video below:

Either request more info with your Name, Address and email to the link at the bottom of this page, or send a deposit of £50 pp to secure your place on your favourite Fireball Rally using the PayPal link, also at the bottom of this page.

Any queries, questions or just fancy a chit chat to get the ‘feel’ of how it all works, just ring us on 07976 362436 and our friendly team will always do their best.

Our Destinations

With the exceptions of the ‘James Bond’s Switzerland Run’ & ‘The Run to The Sun’, 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, with the exception of ‘The Run to The Sun’, which allows you to stay in Spain until you’re ready to return.

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. Apart from the The Run to the Sun’, 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, except ‘Run to the Sun’, begin in Calais and finish 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. 

Good Advice

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 ( £48) 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 between 11am – 8pm:- 07976 362436.  Our knowledgeable Fireball Rally Marshalls will travel too so it’s great to know that expertise and good advice is only a fingertip away during the Rally.

Why Camping? (Included)

We only use quality Campsites – They typically have Clean Hot Showers, Toilets and  Swimming Pools, along with their own Bars and Restaurants so you won’t have to cook anything either.  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.

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 ….. taking a map is handy, allowing you to follow the road within a ‘bigger’ picture, BUT we use GPS so that Sat Nav’s like Garmin or TomTom with  European maps to cover 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.

4. A deposit of £50 per person is required to secure your place on the Fireball Rally.  Deposits are non refundable but are transferable to a friend not already booked to go, or you may transfer your deposit to another Fireball Rally or GT Rally up to twelve months from your original rally date, providing no expenses have already been paid on your behalf, ie Campsite pitches, car decals made for your team etc.

11. You join our rally accepting ALL these Terms and Conditions.
