Last year’s DodgeBall rally saw everything from the Sheiks driving a priceless Gold Bugatti Veryron, to Spencer Mathews from Made in Chelsea in an one-off Lamborghini Perfomante. This years event starts on the first of March at the May Fair hotel.
The cars start assembling on Wednesday night outside the hotel, along with a start party for the drivers, the next day 8.30am sharp the grid lines up. The cars head off out of London to their first stop of the trip, the Pontoise private jet airport just outside of Paris. At the airport a fighter jet has been flown in to take the Dodgeballers up for test flights. During the day the main runway will be closed so the racers can test their hypercars to the limit.
That night the teams party in Paris, before setting off the next morning. They will be heading South. The organizers privately hired the whole Magny Cours Formula One circuit for one single day. The track will be open for the drivers to test their own machines. Exagon Motors who are producing the Furtive eGT one of the world’s most powerful electric cars, will show up to showcase their pre-production prototype. The rally carries on to a sleepy chateaux in Bergundy.
On day 3 it’s time for the cars to hit Switzerland, the home of the finest watch makers. Lined up for the Dodgeballers is a private tour around the very small workshop of Loiseau. Very quietly they are making something amazing, one watch, the world’s most expensive watch being hand made by their team at a cost of 3.5 million Swiss Francs.
Now the last leg begins, to the mountains of Switzerland to finish in Verbier. Sponsored by the Verbier Tourist board the whole town will be welcoming the rally. The trip is rounded off by a finish party at the top of the mountains on an ice table!
