Dumball 2020 Loco in Mexico
The world’s premiere fancy dress banger rally is back. The 2020 event, which takes place 18th-27th January 2020 will take in the wonder and tropical beauty of Mexico! The 10 day trip includes the car, mechanical support, luxury hotels, and all inclusive parties. Get involved in this extreme driving challenge: 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. You don’t need to know a thing about cars to come and drive an old school Beetle across stunning mountains, through jungles, and along the pacific coast. The Mexican people are the friendlist in the world, renowkned for their hospitality and food. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime in a beautiful vintage VW!
Car packages cost from 1300GBP per person, which includes ownership of a vintage 25 year old Beetle, which your team can sell once the rally is over.
If you are feeling even more adventurous, or live in the USA/Mexico and want to bring your own vehicle: you can join for just $1200 per person, right here.
Once you’ve cobbled your team together you can book your spot below. Then 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!
Our entry fee covers the purchase of a vintage VW Beetle (fully insured and ready for you to decorate it), mechanical support enroute, amazing 5 star accommodation, lots of fun parties (with drinks included) and the madcap vibe we are famous for…
