“Rust 2 Rome” is the famous banger rally from Edinburgh to Rome.
Rally has been running for 11 years, and rally participants each year move on a different route on the road from Edinburgh to Rome. This year, the participants of this specific car Rally traveled through the French Alps.
Essentially, “Rust 2 Rome” is an great adventure. It’s a 2 week long 4000 mile trip from Scotland to Rome. The Rust part comes from the rule stating that Car of participants should cost no more than £500.
Buy a car worth no more than £500. Make it look ridiculous. Then drive it to Rome. This year a Saab team (with Saab 9-5 SportWagon) was involved in the rally.
This was Saabrina The Saab team and they ended up successfully reaching Rome. You can follow their entire roadside adventure on this page.
