The 2020 Charity Banger Rally Challenge from Cornwall to Koper in Slovenia is an opportunity of a lifetime and will be a trip to remember, driving on some of Europe’s finest and most scenic roads. The only snag is that your car has to cost around a measly £500 each.
The rally will start on Saturday 26th September leaving Pentewan Sands Holiday Park at 11am and finishing in Koper on Thursday 1st October. We think 6 days charging through 10 Countries in a rubbish car will definitely be a trip to remember. There will be several tasks to perform en route to earn bonus points resulting in prizes but managing to coax your chosen wreck to the finish point should be rewarding enough.
An additional prize will be awarded for the most imaginative/decorated car and their occupants. Although everyone who takes part is a winner, each participant will also be provided with an appropriately tacky medal memento on finishing.
You are now probably thinking, will there be support en route! You are joking surely? You really would not appreciate it if we deprived you of the uncertainty each day on whether your chosen chariot will make it to the next checkpoint, let alone start in the morning. Breaking down miles from anywhere, on a mountain pass in a strange country must be top banana in the entertainment stakes and worth the entry fee alone as we’re sure several teams will testify when they arrive back home!
The cost of a charity place will be £95 registration, which is based on two people sharing a car; additional passengers will be charged at £95 per person. This represents a huge saving on the normal entry cost of £345 and these places are limited. In exchange you undertake to fundraise a minimum of £1,495 for us. These places are strictly limited with just 10 places available.
Entrance fee includes a pre-party on Friday 25th September, finishing party, t-shirts, route plan & camping. Optional extras are purchased directly from the Banger Rally where you will be redirected after sign up.

Every £20 you raise will fund one hour of nursing care in our hospices. In 2019 your efforts helped us open an extra bed in St Julia’s and Mount Edgcumbe Hospices. You can make the difference in 2020 and help open more beds. Our goal is to be able to open more beds and offer more people our specialist care for those precious last hours. Your registration fee will cover the costs of this event, but by raising sponsorship you will enable us to care for more terminally ill people in Cornwall.
