12th to 15th July 2015
The amazing mad cap Rusty Rex Banger Rally offers the most wacky and fun way to Nice. This bonkers road trip takes in the best of the Alps, Swiss & Italian lakes, as well as the magnificent “Gorge de Verdon”, Monaco and of course a party in Nice. Each night we have arranged top venues where you’ll be able to relax and exchange your stories over a beer or two!
11th July the night before.
We have an excellent venue in the main night-life area of the French town of Reims. This is where you’ll register for the banger rally and meet the other Rusty Rex teams.
12th july Day One.
Reims to Interlaken.
Today will be the start of “Rex to Nice 2015″ and the start of your adventure.
This is when you will be able to check out each others rusty wrecks for the first time, (as you’ve probably spent the previous night exchanging stories). Also the Rusty Rex team will be on hand to give out the first days activities.
(As on every morning).
Today the banger rally will travel through the Champagne area of Reims and into the Swiss Alps, to the picture postcard town of Interlaken. This drive will take you along the stunning coast road of lake Thun.
13th July Day Two.
Interlaken to Bormio.
Today is a big day, it will give you chance to test your old cars. This can include up to eight mountain passes! After being given todays activities, we will head off by driving round the second lake (Brienz). Then its on to some of the best driving roads through the alps. Furka Pass (James Bond Db5, Ford Mustang chase, Goldfinger), Grimselpass, and
14th July Day Three.
Bormio to Val-d’Isere.
Day Three. By now you’ll probably be travelling in your banger surrounded by half eaten food, rubbish and the odd map. So it’ll be a breath of fresh air to drive around the excellent lake Como and on to Val-d’Isere. Our route will take you along the boarders of Milan and Turin, where you can take the little st Bernard pass, opening scene from the Italian job (Lambo in the tunnel) or take Bonneval sur Arc and across
Col de L’Iseran, at 2770m known as the highest paved road in Europe. Previously featured as a Tour de France and WRC special stage. (Not at the same time).
15th July Day Four.
Val-d’Isere to Nice.
The final day and it will not disappoint! The banger rally will be heading down through some of France’s national parks along the Route Napoleon, passing through both the Alps and the Alps Maritimes . There will be some fantastic views along “Gorge de Verdon” know as the French Grand Canyon (as featured on Top Gear). Finally after a quick trip into Monaco you will have your choice of coast road into Nice. There, after checking into your hotel we all meet at the final evening venue right in the exclusive area of Nice port, for the Banger Rally grand send off…
