CARS

Each team of up to 3 drivers must find and prepare their own banger worth less than £500. If you’re not sure what to do, Driven to Extremes can advise on how to source and prepare a suitable vehicle, as well as offering a turn-key solution where suitable cars are sourced and prepared ready for the desert. Contact Mac for more details.

THE CHALLENGE

The Sahara Banger Rally is an adventurous expedition that requires endurance, stamina and resilience when the going gets tough. Whilst battling through arduous terrain in such a challenging and extreme environment, common issues include punctured tyres, holed engine sumps, damaged exhausts and endless vehicle recoveries from soft sand. But with all teams pulling together when needed, no one is left stranded.

THE SUPPORT

Of course, with any used car costing under £500 there are always going to be issues, so your team is backed up by a professional support crew in expedition equipped 4×4’s who are on hand to cover any eventualities.

Delivered by expedition specialists Max Adventure, we have been operating in extreme environments for over 25 years, in temperatures from -60C to +50C  and 8,850 meters above sea level.

We have worked alongside explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Hollywood actor Tom Hardy in places as far-flung as Siberia, the North Pole and Mt Everest.

THE HISTORY

Originally conceived as a support programme to help ex-military personnel with their recovery from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by taking them on confidence-building vehicle adventures, next year’s Sahara Banger Rally has been opened up to the public, allowing adventurers from all walks of life to take part.

THE COST

Entry fee for the ‘Sahara Banger Rally’ costs from as little as £900 per person. This cost includes return car ferry from Spain to Morocco, all campsite accommodation in Morocco (with the option to upgrade to hotels), branded team clothing and vehicle graphics. Each team is also asked to endeavour to raise a minimum of £250 for their chosen charity.

THE DATES

The total adventure from the UK is 17 days, but teams are able to join us in southern Spain should they wish to take a more leisurely drive through Europe.
