Event Info

Following the resounding success of the BEN Trafalgar to Red Square Rally, we’ll be travelling from England to Italy from 20-29th June 2009 to complete our very own Mille Miglia Rally!

Not only is this a unique driving challenge and a fantastic personal experience, it’s also a phenomenal way to raise funds for BEN - The Automotive Industry Charity.

How much money will I have to fundraise?

At least £4000 if you enter a car or £2500 for a motorcycle.  We’ll send you a detailed fundraising booklet packed with tips and advice to help you reach your target.  All funds raised will go directly towards helping people who are most in need within our industries.

Are there any other costs?

When you register you will need to pay a deposit (non-refundable) of £400 for a car or £250 for a motorcycle.  You will need to provide your own vehicle which has been recently serviced, insurance and european breakdown cover (see below).  You will also need to cover the costs for your fuel, any repairs, drinks (other than water), lunch, souvenirs/postcards and gratuities, as these are not covered by the tour costs.  We would advise you to bring a mixture of credit card(s), travellers’ cheques and cash.

What insurance cover do I need?

Each individual must arrange for adequate travel insurance cover and will need to provide proof of this eight weeks before departure.  You will also need to make sure that you are insured to drive your vehicle (and that your co-driver is insured if travelling by car) in all countries we drive through.  AA Road Side Assistance will be provided for minor problems, however you must ensure you have European breakdown cover in case your vehicle cannot be repaired and has to be returned to the UK.

What is included in the tour costs?

A return crossing from Dover to Calais, all acommodation, breakfast and evening meals, non-alcoholic drinks and refreshments on driving days.

What route will we take?

View the itinerary for a description of the route.  Each day everyone will receive a detailed briefing and recommended route.  You will need to navigate to the final evening destination, but remember, it’s not a race!

What kind of support will there be?

A trained first-aider, support vehicles, mechanics and a BEN representative will accompany the rally providing support when required.

What do I need to bring with me?

We will supply you with a list of things you’ll need to bring and recommend the type of kit you will require (including basic spares and tools).  You will need to carry your personal luggage with you throughout the challenge, but if this isn’t possible we can arrange for it to be transported by one of the support vehicles.

What if I can’t raise the sponsorship money?

We ask that 100% of the set amount of sponsorship money is paid to BEN 10 weeks before we depart.  If you don’t raise this amount you are liable to forfeit your place on the challenge.  We will help you along way by providing fundraising tips and advice to help you reach your target, but if you find yourself facing unexpected difficulties then please give us a call.

Can I stay on?

Yes.  Contact the Events Team for more details.
