Rusty Rex Rallies “Rex to Nice”

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!

We have an excellent venue in the main night-life area of the Reims_night_lifeFrench town of Reims. This is where you’ll register for the banger rally and meet the other Rusty Rex teams.

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

Nice in 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…
