THE GT RALLY
Welcome to the GT Rally. The Challenge of Driving your own Car through Europe, testing yourself and your car on a worthy Adventure. Enjoy all those quirky European things that our neighbours are so very good at, like the Munich Oktoberfest. Although not a race, you will be given the Sat Nav/Map Coordinates for each leg of the rally, usually the next evenings Hotel, 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, there are always interesting things to see, visit and experience. With at least one full day at our prime destination, you will remember this for the rest of your life.
COSTS are below
What you’ll need
A reliable car, a navigator or co-pilot, a passport (and visas if you’re not a European National), excellent map reading skills & map OR Garmin Sat Nav with European maps, a few pennies to purchase fuel, tolls, possibly some vignettes (road tax) depending on which countries you visit, food and anything that grabs your eye, and finally, a toothbrush in a bag with more than one set of under clothes.
The Beautiful Traditional Hotels will reflect the countries we visit. We provide Bed & Breakfast everyday to set you up for each day’s adventure. In the evenings, a briefing for the next leg will take place, usually in the bar and then European culture is just outside, waiting to be discovered, along with the local night life and cuisine.
With the research, organisation and experience, our representatives will greet you each day at your new Hotel with Details and Coordinates of the next leg of the Rally.

We can usually arrange minor miracles with enough notice. Just call Greg …. he’s been known to pull some lovely surprises out of the bag from time to time.
Stopping for a Day
Whether it’s Venice, Monte Carlo, Oktoberfest or Pula, unless it’s a two day rally, we always Stop for at least One whole Day to Relax and Entirely Enjoy a Destination.
Channel Crossing (not included)
As the rally both begins in Calais and finishes 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.
Why a circular route?
The GT Rally always completes a circular route that goes to our prime destination, and continues back to Calais by another great route.
The idea of just going on a one way trip to a destination, to leave your car behind and fly back is great, if you’re taking an ambulance to a third world country for them to use….BUT not in Europe??? To try and sell your right hand drive car in left hand drive Europe makes no sense, and then book a flight back seems to be a poor way to end an exciting adventure. OR……to drive back with the trouble and expense (between £90 – £180 per night) of finding a bed for the night, every night, on your way back home in a foreign country alone, seems like treachery.
We have a six page ‘Information Pack’ from how to get the FREE use of a car, to really great prices ( from £38) on European Breakdown Recovery, to what medical entitlements you have abroad. The GT 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: 24/7 during the Rally and between 11am – 8pm at other times 07976 362436.
Travel around Europe on an adventure with new and existing friends. Soak up the sights, sounds and smells of many of the historic cities, castles, roads and views of many countries. Do it for charity, do it for the adventure or simply do it for the challenge.
The Awesome Challenge of conquering so many international countries in just a week makes the famous GT Rally an Amazing Adventure.
