Your car must be worth no more than £500 ( but we are a little flexible). What you choose to spend on the car after that to make it roadworthy and to decorate it is completely up to you. It may be possible to get a car donated if you are taking part in the rally for charity. We will accept specialty cars with a different value. Please ask for clarification on any vehicle you are thinking of.
Your car must meet all the regulations of each country. In Europe you are obliged to carry: Spare Bulbs, Hi Vis Jacket (2 in some countries), you must indicate your country of origin, your head lights must be adjusted or have deflectors fitted for European Driving.

There must be at least two people per team. There is always a good spirit surrounding the teams on Charity Banger Rallies and it is very common for participants to help other teams out if they run into car trouble or any of the other crazy mishaps that can sometimes pop up on a Banger rally (There will always be stewards on call for assistance)
