About

Undie 500 is the coolest international Banger Rally!

Buy an old banger for under 500 Euros/Pounds. Theme your team and show up at the start in your most original outfits and a car to match. Drive through 10 countries in 5 days together with hundreds of other people that don’t take life too seriously.

The Challenge
The Challenge is to drive 2.500 kilometres, through 10 countries in 5 days. Not in a normal, reliable car, but in an old banger. The Undie 500 is not about speed and/or time. It is about stepping out of your comfort zone, having fun, and driving the road trip of a lifetime!

We will take you out of your comfort zone by giving you challenges every day that will get you into awkward situations you will never forget. With these assignments you can earn points. And the team with the most points at the end of the week wins the Undie 500.

The driving is also challenging. We have made the most beautiful routes for you. These routes go way off the beaten track and will take you places you’ve never seen before. We will avoid highways as much as possible and let you drive challenging roads with fantastic views instead.

What is Unique about the Undie 500?

There are lots of banger rally’s in Europe, but they all have one thing in common: they focus on one crowd from one country. It’s either British participants only, or Dutch people only. In the Undie 500 we want to mix different nationalities in one event to make the experience even better. You will meet likeminded weirdos from all over Europe that joined the Undie Cult!

We have our roots in The Netherlands, so let’s be honest, we understand the majority of participants will be Dutch in the first edition of the Undie 500. Give us some time, and we will make sure the Undie Cult will have a more mixed crowd in the future. But it would be even better if you help us with that. So, if you are not from The Netherlands, join the Undie 500 now and you will receive a free T-shirt and some privileges during the event (we can’t tell what it is yet, we will surprise you).

Most banger rallies have the same problem: 95% of the participants have a dick. We want to have more women on this event. So yes we discriminate: all-female teams get free T-shirts and free camping passes. So if you have a team that consists of only female participants? Send us an e-mail and we will give you a special discount code.

The Car
Make sure your car is at least 20 years old and that the current market value is under 500 Pounds or Euro’s. Your team has to be themed and of course your car has to match this theme. Pimp it as you like, as long as your car meets all the technical rules and regulations. The car must have a valid MOT/APK/TüV (depending on the country of registration). The car must be insured, at least third-party/liability insurance and passenger insurance. And very important: your insurance broker or insurance company must confirm to you in writing that they are ok with your participation in the Undie 500 event.

The route
The route in a nutshell: Stunning scenery, the best driving roads, and unique places. You will start your journey in Belgium. But before you reach the finish line in South-East Germany after 5 days, you have driven through 10 different countries:
– Belgium
– Luxemburg
– France
– Germany
– Switzerland
– Liechtenstein
– Austria

Campsite
The finish location at the end of every day is not just a finish line, it will be an extra experience. There’s food, drinks, music, and a campsite available. So, you cannot just finish every night, you can celebrate your finish with your fellow participants! If you book a campsite pass, you can spend the night at the finish location. A camping pass will cost you 49 Euro’s per person and you get 5 overnights for that. There will be showers, toilets etc. but not in huge quantities, this is a very basic campsite. Don’t expect luxury, but you can expect a party!
