No GPS, no navigation system, limited highway driving = a bigger and better adventure.


Party Time

Just to make sure you have a chance to share your adventures with the other teams as you all make your way to Amsterdam, we’re arranging 2 amazing party stops along the journey. At the official rally start, we’ll let you know exactly where they are.



This rally ain’t about speed. Your Roadbook provides you with various opportunities to throw some unknowns into your adventure, by way of decrypting codes and fulfilling certain tasks. Each team will receive a Roadbook at the rally start in Munich.
The winner of The European 5000 Rally Road Book Competition gets a starting spot for a further S.A.C rally of his choice.
