About The Rally
Ramshackle Valencia is the epitome of absurdity. The willing participants must place their trust in a few quid's worth of scrap metal and set off on an epic banger rally covering 1450 miles. Teams compete in what has become the craziest banger rally on the European circuit before joining in with 40,000 others lobbing squashed tomato's at each other. Sounds fairly tame from a Ramshackle perspective!
The rally lasts for four days as teams compete in the daily challenges to score points and simply put the team with the most points at the end of it all is the winner.
Like all good Ramshackle adventures, this rally is completely unsupported. The responsibility for looking after you lies only with you! There is no plan B until it happens so let your hair down, throw caution to the wind and see where you end up at the end of each crazy day.
The La Tomatina festival takes place on the last Wednesday of August every year, during the week of festivities of Buñol, just outside Valencia. Teams who are staying on to take part in the tomato lobbing should not expect to be back in Valencia any earlier than 4pm on the day of the festival.
Due to La Tomatina Festival growing every year and the large number of attendees, The local council has decided to introduce a tax of €10 to access the “Tomatoes Area” to guarantee the quality as well as the safety of the festivity. Tickets can be purchased through the following link.
