The world’s premiere fancy dress banger rally is back. The 2020 event, which takes place 18th-27th January 2020 will be going beyond the wall…to Mexico! All to fund much needed support for teenagers with cancer.

If you haven’t heard of the dumball, we suggest you check out previous rallys in our gallery or our instagram feed and some of the videos in the dumbology section of this site.

Our eleventh event will cost from $1600 per person, which includes ownership of a VW Beetle (or $1225 if you bring your own car – save $1500 per team! – see below), which your team can sell once the rally is over. Once you’ve cobbled your team together you can book your spot below.


Once signed up, get yourself a return flight to Mexico City to be there for midday on Saturday 18th Jan… and we will look after you from start to finish! To Recap: our entry fee covers the purchase of a vintage VW Beetle (fully insured and ready for you to decorate it) amazing accommodation, lots of fun parties, and the madcap vibe we are famous for…

*Price for a 4 person team bringing their own car. See below for full pricing options. This year you can pay in interest free instalments. Choose the ‘spread the payments option when you get to the payment screen.

Own A Classic Mexican VW Bug!

In 2020 your entry fee covers the cost of your very own Mexican VW Beetle…yes the old classic. You and your team mates will have half a day in Mexico City to decorate it, while the Marache band play… so start thinking of your fancy dress theme now!

On 19th January 2020 our cavalcade of madness will leave Mexico City: heading via jungle, mountains and the sandy Pacific coast…. to Acapulco. There we will go ‘loco’ before heading back to the southern edge of Mexico City where our organisers will buy the car back from you, you can sell your car to a local, or make arrangements to ship it home :-).
