About Us

Split or Bust is brought to you again this year by the Cornwall Banger Rally Challenge Team. We have been helping create your Rally and dreaming up daft challenges over the years, leading the mayhem for 10 rallies. 

A long, long, time ago....well 2011 to be exact, St Austell Round Table decided it might be a wizard wheeze to organise a charity Banger Rally. Monte Carlo or Bust set off that September. The rally was such a success that the demand for another one was huge. The rest is history as you might say, except.. the reputation and popularity of the rally has grown and grown over the years. The outstanding organisation, amazing routes, crazy challenges, party nights, great campsites, and last-night parties are the stuff of legend, bringing many teams back year after year. But besides the fun, the main drive for the Rally has been to raise money for charities and over the years the Banger Rally Challenge has raised a phenomenal sum of over £1.2 million for charities across the country.

Meet the Team Leaders

The Banger Rally Challenge raises money for charities across Cornwall and Nationwide. Our job is to help you engage with your supporters by sharing your challenges and journey. The entire team is made up of volunteers who work all year to create a unique, exciting and challenging experience for ralliers. The Banger Rally Challenge rally is a non-profit organisation

Sarah Hart

Small but very noisy indeed. Better known as Office Hooker, Sergeant Sausage's sidekick and together they protect the rally every day. Rally veterans, they have tirelessly helped to organise the rally. She is however, very naughty indeed!

Mark Lewis

As Commando Bond here on Porto or Bust. Aptly named after his penchant for stripping off... almost anywhere! Mark and Melanie are rally veterans and have been rally organisers for the last 8 rallies
