No GPS, no navigation system, limited highway driving = a bigger and better adventure.

Roadbook

This rally is not about speed. Your Roadbook provides you with various opportunities to throw some unknowns into your adventure, by way of decrypting codes and fulfilling certain tasks. Each team will receive a Roadbook at the rally start at the pre alps.
The winner of The European Mountain Summit Road Book Competition gets a starting spot for a further S.A.C rally of his choice.

Party Time

Just to make sure you have a chance to share your adventures with the other teams, we’re arranging an amazing party stop along the way. At the official SAC Party, we're all going to camp together. Of course, you can also sleep in your Rally-Bus or truck. Sleeping at a nearby pension or hotel is also possible!

In Southern France we'll celebrate the winners of the European Mountain Summit with a big send-off event and of course, we'll crown the winners. 

At the official rally start, we’ll let you know where exactly the events are.
