Re: Cannonball Europe - any good?

I would do it again definately.
It's not to everyones taste, it's more for petrolheads than partyheads.

Just don't expect to get much sleep!

Sounds good as I dont drink and am really only in it for the driving. While I like to drive fast ( I have a Lotus Esprit) I am not interested in flat out driving for 7 days.

I like the idea iof having to reach destinations within an average legal speed target.

Reverend Bob is just a little Plebb, nothing to worry about Mancunian.

Rev. Bob did it a couple of years ago and it was aired on the Men and Motors Channel. Let's say he and his show is an acquired test.

As for the rally if I cast my mind back there was quite a long thread with former participants that weren't at all happy. It all depends on what your expecting to get out of it and how you think/expect an event that you pay a fair few grand should be organised.

Rev. Bob did the Cannonball 8000, a seperate event organised by different people.

And yes he and his show are an aquired taste, he's the only person I've ever seen make a rally look boring.
