What's the budget for the car and do I have to prove the value of it?

The budget for your trusty banger is £1000 no more! You don't have to prove the value of it, but we can always tell if a car is over budget. Remember this is a banger rally, be prepared to leave your car behind should it completely break. The rules state that you must not spend more than £1000 on your car including any work needed to pass an mot but excluding the actual cost of the mot and tax. If after buying your car you find it needs safety related repairs, like tyres, brakes or similar we will turn a blind eye to it.



Do I need special car insurance?

Nope not at all, your normal car insurance should do it. Just make sure you have European Cover, most policies do however it's important to check this and inform your insurance company that you are going abroad. Remember, Rust 2 Rome isn't a timed event or a race, it's a driving adventure across Europe.
