Why you should choose Rico Rally for your European Driving Adventure.
With so many Road Trips on offer these days why should you choose Rico Rally?
It all began many years ago watching the likes of Gumball 3000, Bull Run & the originator of all road tripsCannonBall Run
We aim to provide an amazing experience and drive some of central Europe’s best known & unknown passes whilst staying at Luxury hotels in some truly spectacular locations, all this coupled together with making new friends and memories of a lifetime.
Being a bit of a car enthusiast i’d always wanted to to do some sort of road trip with my mates or a group but year on year friends agreed then just found a reason not to participate.
Well one year (2009) things changed over a few relaxing beers with mates in the local bar, a trip called Modball was suggested to me by Kenny….! (Many Thanks) I thought OOOOH this is the one so after returning home late that evening i instantly checked them out on the web and spotted the paypal button (BOOM) booked 2 places, long story short we did Modball in 2010 and were pretty disappointed with the lack of support and organisation along with the drive all day party all night approach although met some amazing people who have become long standing friends.
So upon returning home from the rally i set out with the aim of creating a one time only trip for mates and any petrol-heads that wished to join me, Hence i decided the name #RicoRally (another long story) i then got a couple of good friends/colleagues to join forces with me to create the vision and off we went.
Website, social media, flyers, banners and as many shows as we could attend over the next several months leading up to this amazing journey.
Rico Rally 2012 European road trip was created, we involved 80 people split over 39 cars and in June that year we set off for our adventure of a lifetime. A great time along with many experiences were shared by all on the trip forming many friendships and as we completed our journey our newly formed family were asking “what about next year” Hmmmh i thought whilst pausing…….!! The idea was a one off trip to show we could produce an enjoyable well organised trip (We had).
That year we formed MV Events Ltd and continued to trade and grow as Rico Rally, over the years all of our beloved entrants have made amazing connections, friends and even family ties, We’ve had business’s created, marriage proposals, new found love and honeymooners along side of making so many friends, we have a large number of repeat customers which feel more like one big family.
We’ve had entrants travel from Australia, Finland, Norway, Germany, Spain etc, Various ages of men, women & couples from all walks of life with cars such as Peugeot 106, Landrover defender, GTR’s, Lamborghini’s Classic cars.
