There’s still time to hook up with this unique European car rally and aid children charities.
Here is yet another wonderful new way to have fun in your MINI.
Launched in 1990 with the aim of raising money for children in a fun way, the Italian Job continues to raise funds in aid of national childrens’ charities. This is ten (or more) glorious days in your Mini – new or classic - driving through some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe you’d likely never see on your own.
This year, the rally leaves Imola, in Italy on October 24 and pulls in to Brighton on November 1. Your team consists of a driver, co-pilot/navigator and your MINI. You acquire sponsors for the trip, then load up with local wine while you’re in Italy and have it sold at auction in Brighton. All the money raised, by sponsorship and auction, benefit children's charities.
You will drive over medieval bridges, through tiny villages and explore cities such as Bologna, Turin and Venice. You will be staying in hotels such as the state of the art Meridien in Turin or the majestic Regina Palace on the shore of lake Maggiore. There is ample opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of local producers and to sample regional cuisine and typical delicacies. Finally the rally will take you and your Mini on to the Adria raceway circuit, and perhaps onto the Grand Prix circuit of Monza and you may also go for a lap or two on the famous Lingotto Roof top test track which appeared in the 1969 film.
You’ll make new friends, explore new places and improve your driving/navigational skills, all while raising for a really good cause! (The group has raised £ 2,020,126.72 for children so far!)
Anyone over 21 years old can get involved as long as you drive a Mini or a classic car from the original Michael Caine film, The Italian Job.
