From the http://www.czechwrecks.com website:
This is gonna be fantastic - up to 130 cars that cost no more than £100 on a beer fuelled trip to Prague where we'll drink more beerWelcome to the next chapter in European Banger Rallying! This time we're heading for Prague.
Four more wild days piloting old bits of rubbish towards an Eastern Europe scrap yard!
Same rules as per normal - car must cost less than £100 and be M reg or older.
As we are going over passes, brakes and clutches are VERY important. A decent cooling system is a bonus.
CzechWrecks will be taking in Stelvio Pass. This isn't optional, this is mandatory (unless your car is in such bad shape you need to avoid it, of course).
The event will also be spending an evening in the beautiful town of Annecy. The two is divided by canals and is known as the French Venice.
CRX will then head into Switzerland crossing over the Simplonpass, and heading onto Bormio in Italy at the foot of Stelviopass ready for the climb to the top of the pass first thing the next morning.
The event will continue on past the submerged town of Reiser and then on into Austria for a stopover outside Salzberg.
The final day will see us crossing into the Czech Republic and heading to Prague over the back roads rather than the motorways, which is apparently the better way of seeing the real country. It has been said that it will be like stepping back into time. Who knows!
£150 entry fee, we've just booked up. But worth every penny I think you'll agree.
Anyone got a big old barge (Croma, Thema, 164 and the like) that they want to sell to me for £100?? We've only got a Citroen ZX 1.4 atm
Edited to say - there is a £1000 first prize.....
