Cornball Learn More


This year the Banger Rally Challenge Team thought it would be a wizard wheeze to organise a mini rally for those who love to rally but can't join us on Split or Bust and those who would love to have a go but aren't quite sure they will survive the full experience.

So Ladies and Gents we bring you CORNBALL 24 !

This will be a one day, one stage run around Cornwall. We have designed this to be an exact replica of a normal Rally Stage, except that we are lifting all vehicle age and value restrictions to be eligible to win.  You can enter in your daily commute, your Banger or your Maserati.

You will still not receive the route until you check-in on the day. There will be daft challenges and quiz questions to complete on the way and the winner will be the team with the highest number of points overall. There are 1st, 2nd and 3rd, best Fancy Dress and Spirit of the Rally coveted Trophies to be won.  It will be a challenge !!

We have secured a fantastic venue for the run and are delighted to announce that Tencreek Holiday Park at Looe have kindly agreed to host our inaugural home run.

The Cornball 24 will take place on SATURDAY 11TH MAY 2024 start at 9:00AM and finish at Tencreek with one of our legendary parties with a feast and entertainment

More details will be on the enter page for booking accommodation but you may book accommodation for just Friday, Friday and Saturday or just Saturday. You can camp, bring a camper or motorhome or book one of their lovely chalets. Some of you may decide to just join us for the day and go home after the party. Some may want families and friends to join us just for the presentations and party. Basically you do you !

Your Team entry will include the finishing party food and entertainment, your routes and challenges, team numbers and stickers, a Cornball 24 T-Shirt and a cracking finishing medal.

 There will be no vehicle age restrictions on the Cornball Run, and it is not a race, there are no prizes for finishing first. There is a Prize though for best fancy dress and at this ralliers excel !

With all this excitement we know you can't wait to know how much this will cost to enter!

So please click on the Enter button below. Entries are limited so act now to secure your place.

Everything you need to know

You'll need a Car

You can enter the rally in any car you like and enter all the challenges.  Be aware that certain additions to your vehicle are not tolerated by the police. They do not like removal of bumpers or addition of items on the bonnet like spikes that are not foam for instance. Gun turrets are completely out and so are fake guns. But please do decorate your vehicle if you wish, take a look at the videos on the homepage for inspiration. There is a prize for team in best fancy dress. All drivers and team captains must be over the age of 21 and all team members must be over the age of 14.

What is the route ?

We never reveal the route, only the start and finish destination. You will need to find your dedicated Team Leaders when you finish before they are trollied and have your challenges marked before the deadline.  Our route is designed to give you the best driving experience, taking you through windy roads, and outstanding scenery. If you simply satnav the route, you will miss all the fun, the enroute challenges, the rest of the ralliers and be in the bar twiddling your thumbs by 3pm. Just saying.

Do we have to do the challenges ?

No you don't have to do the challenges but there is not much point coming if you don't. Veteran ralliers will tell you that if you want to get the best out of this challenge, engage with the spirit of the rally. Immerse yourself in a madcap day of messing about in cars, letting go of inhibitions, partying and carpool karaoke. Yep, its a challenge ! Your Team Leaders are there to help and encourage you. And there are prizes !

Do we have to raise money for charity ?

We would very much like you to. The organisers of Cornball 24 and the Banger Rally Challenge do so voluntarily to raise charity funds.  You will be asked at check-in for your charity and how much you have raised to date. It only takes minutes to set up a Just Giving Page. Give yourself a £100 target. Share your story on social media, you'll be amazed how much you can raise. If you do not have a charity then we are offering a donation option at sign-up.

How about meals?

If you are staying for the two nights. The excellent onsite Dinos Clubhouse at Tencreek will be open for dinner on Friday evening. Included in everyone's entry is the party night meal on Saturday which will be a carvery so there will be many options available. Breakfast is also available from 8.30am daily. If you want friends or family to join you for the party but will not be on the rally you can purchase a party and meal ticket only for £20. We would add this is not an event suitable for children under 14.

What are the Prizes ?

The overall winning team will win a one of our coveted Piston Trophies. Trophies will be also be awarded to 2nd and 3rd places, Best Fancy Dress and Spirit of the Rally.

Make sure you're legal

Please make sure you are road legal and all lights are working etc. There's nothing more tasty for the police to pull than an aged vehicle smothered in fake grass, a set of balding tyres, rally stickers, containing two blokes wearing only loin clothes.

Where will we stay?

We are starting and finishing at Tencreek Holiday Park near Looe (NOT Trencreek please note). If you are staying you will need to book and pay for your accommodation directly with the campsite. You will not be able to do this until you have entered and received a team number to make that booking. Full details will be issued and link to book will be given on entry.
