Thursday EVENING 12th September – Pre Rally Briefing

The Superheroes meet in Kent

Pre- Rally Briefing in Kent.  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 in the Bar, including more detailed information on tomorrows leg of the rally.  For ease, this Rally is based on GPS navigation which is ideal for Garmin and TomTom SatNav’s.   SatNav coordinates will be explained 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 along with meeting fellow adventurers who will become your good friends.

The Rally begins tomorrow at the very moment your car tyres hit the French tarmac.

Day 1 – Friday, 13th September The FIRST LEG of the RALLY

We arrive in Calais and now the Rally begins. Like a coiled spring, we’re off to find the sunshine and travel South through France. By now, armed with the information issued to you, you’ll know your destination and you’ll have decided where you want to stop off to enjoy the sights of Europe as you travel Southwards towards Switzerland. Maybe you fancy dropping into the Magnificent Palace of the sun god Louis XIV in Versailles or visiting a V2 Rocket Blockhouse in France, designed to send unmanned bombs to obliterate London.

Day 2 – Saturday, 14th September

Our adventure begins, do you know how many missions 007 had in Switzerland? What a fantastic way to find out !!!

Fireball Rally - piz-gloria


007’s ‘On Her Majesties Secret Service’ was filmed here and you can have a real adventure by visiting this iconic film set via two cable cars and traveling to the very top of the Mountain. Reward your efforts in the revolving restaurant which is 9,786ft above sea level and stands next to the Eiger seen in this picture.

Fireball Rally - piz-gloria

From this point on, it’s James Bond territory, the Dam from GOLDEN EYE, The Mountain Spa Retreat from SPECTRE, The Petrol Station and the Furka Pass where Tilly Masterson’s (sister of the Gold Painted lady)  Ford Mustang was cut up by the DB5’S Whirling Wing Nuts and James witnessed an assassination attempt on GOLDFINGER‘s life, the revolving restaurant which became Blofelds secret fortess in ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service‘, but mostly, it will be the mountain passes that will challenge you….the adventure starts on this day.


Fireball Rally - db5

The Furka Pass featured in Goldfinger with the DB5 and Ford Mustang chase sequence involving the whirling wheel nuts. ‘TopGear’ enjoyed the hairpin bends too.

Fireball Rally - furka-grimsel-pass

Switzerland’s Beauty and Mountain Passes have a magnetic attraction. The roads are built with the precision of a Swiss Clock, scaling almost vertical cliff faces. Where else in the World do you actually marvel at the roads?

Fireball Rally - glacier

With enough time to visit this amazing Glacier ……….. and even go inside, it would be churlish not to, after all, how many can claim to have been inside a real Glacier?



Fireball Rally - verzasca-dam

See Fireballer Paul Banks, go into the ‘Hall of Fame’ as he completed the Golden Eye Bungy Jump …… he said “Fear is only tempory … Achievement lasts a lifetime” ……. and we know it can earn you extra for your Charity too.  Will you find your Hero within, like Paul?  Check his video out below:-

The Golden Eye Dam

It’s so awesome that if you fancy jumping from the actual 007 Dam for your Charity, just let us know, and we’ll make sure that you have all the information you need.  You’ll cherish the memory forever !!!



Stop for a glass of wine, relax and enjoy the serene beauty of nearby Lake Como

Day 3 – Sunday, 15th September

Another Ian Fleming treat:  Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was written by Ian Fleming.

We are so close to the Castle where Walt Disney was so enthralled by it’s beauty, he copied it for HIS World Famous Fairytale Castle.  It’s also where the magical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was filmed, it would be a crime not to see where the Child Snatcher stalked his prey and Truly Scumptious helped to save them.

Aftrer meeting Dover eccentric local man Archie Potts, Ian Fleming called the crackpot inventor Grandpa in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang by his name: ‘Colonel Archie Potts’ 

The Real Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

As a side note, The Real Chitty Chitty Bang Bang won two races at its debut at Brooklands in 1921,


The intrigue continues as we head to a beautiful campsite right in the middle of THE BLACK FOREST.  Although Black Bears haven’t been seen here recently, our campsite is within a gated and secure area, ‘just in case’.  Wild boar still roam freely and make excellent German Sausages.  Wolves have been introduced back here, so if you’re lucky you might see one – keep your eyes open and your legs in running mode.

Finally, as Fireballers, you’ll be thrilled to know that The Fireball Rally will treat every one of you to our Final Meal together on the awards evening in Germany, but, as we’ve now seen how you drink during the Rally, we will NOT be paying your drinks bill


This will be our last night but with Certificates & Trophies to be presented, the Fireballers celebrate our great Adventure together. Having followed in the footsteps of 007, we toast him and take pride in our accomplishments.
