Welcome to the home of the dumball: the world famous fancy dress festival on wheels. It’s a charity banger rally, an extreme driving challenge for people that know very little about cars, and the odd person that does. We raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust by pimping up cars that have seen better days, and driving them for thousands of miles on the world’s toughest roads. Beware of imitators, for over a decade the dumball has been goofing around in far flung corners of the globe.
The dumball is a test of endurance. We conquer whole continents, in a week. But what we’re really famous for is the camaraderie, style and genuinely childish excitement with which we raise money for a great cause. There is no banger rally quite like ours. Just ask anyone who has been.
Since 2007 the dumball has raised over £650,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust so that they can build a state-of-the-art unit at a recognised centre of excellence, The Royal Marsden Hospital. It cares for teenagers and young people with cancer. The unit cost over £3 million all together, so help us do our bit! Why? Because of an inspirational young man called Adam Horn.

Remember, the dumball is not a race. There are no prizes for first place. We stick together in convoys, give you radios so you can banter en route, and wherever we stop, the party starts.
We are doing something stupid to raise money for a very serious cause, so join us on our next inadvisable mission, you never know, you might just have the best week of your life
We've conquered Europe, Africa, and now we are touring Asia. The 2017 rally will be in Northern India of all places. Ever wanted to explore your driving limits? Sign up for our Indian Jeep Desert Adventure, right now!
So that’s it. A fantastic send off last night and a lazy day today, recovering from a tough week and mulling over schemes for potential future dumball. At the awards we had some live music, amazing dancers, fire tricks and some lucky dumballers got some of the best awards money can’t buy (that we brought). […]
So here we are, all made it safe and sound to the beach paradise of Goa. We’re here un Palolem, an hour south of Goa town proper and a bit more relax than tourist central. The admin doesn’t stop for dumball one though. Collecting the walkies, photos for the challenges awards nominations… Not to mention […]
