Sorry but we haven't released details of the 2018 rally just yet. If you're thirsty to learn more about the dumball, educate yourself in dumbology, check out what we did in 2017 in our blog, and peruse the gallery. The Dumball is the world famous fancy dress festival on wheels that is raising money for teenagers with cancer. We take old bangers and drive them as far as we can in just one week. We travel in huge convoys, you're given a radio so you can chat to the other nut cases, and we conquer entire continents spreading our own brand of crazy as we go. You pledge to raise as much as you can for Teenage Cancer Trust... we arrange EVERYTHING ELSE so you have what most people describe as a LIFE CHANGING experience.
It's almost too good to be true
11 years on from the first ever dumball rally, our ninth event was in January 2017. Starting in New Delhi the plan was to take 200 dumballers on a mission through the Rajasthani desert, thorough the heart of India. In Jaipur they were handed the keys to a fleet of classic Mahunindra Jeeps. Each team had 2 hours in the Indian capital to decorate their beloved jeep inside and out before we set our sights on the tropical paradise of Goa. The dumball is run by volunteers, so unlike other events of this nature, all of your entrance fee is spent on giving you the best time possible en route. It costs around £1000 per person to dumball in somewhere like Asia or Latin America, and about half that for a European route (because we don't provide the cars for those routes - you do!) For your entry fee we provide: – Your car, fully insured and with mechanical support en route, parts, servicing and a nightly safety check – driver training in India, – 10 nights 3-5 star accommodation with breakfast and dinner included, a grand opening party and a huge awards ceremony (Indian beach party style!) at the end – Your driver’s pack which contains T-shirts, your walkie (to talk to your convoy), fundraising assistance and the all-important driver’s manual that will get you there (or there abouts).
