about the event

Cannonball Run Europe is a challenging event for people that love life, driving and cars with the added intrigue of a ‘top secret’ journey

The lure is to experience the thrill of driving on a mission, not knowing what each day might hold, sharing the camaraderie with like-minded adventurers while being part of the history of the legendary Cannonball Run

Travelling 2,500 miles across the European Continent in six days Cannonballers tackle demanding roads and take in breathtaking scenery, not knowing where the journey will take them

At the end of each day’s mission, Cannonballers arrive at one of Europe’s top five star hotels to sample the very best in local food and drink and relax with new friends

The week culminates in a black tie gala awards dinner and grand finale party in Cannonball style at final destination

The heritage

The Cannonball name originates from the die-hard adventurer Erwin G. ‘Cannonball’ Baker, the greatest cross-country record breaker of them all. Baker set 143 American distance records, including a 53½ hour coast to coast solo drive averaging over 50 mph in 1933!

Inspired by the great man and in defiance of the newly introduced 55 mph US speed limit, rebellious journalist Brock Yates launched the “Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash”

This was the theme of the famous 1981 film ‘The Cannonball Run’ featuring Burt Reynolds and Roger Moore, which paid homage to those early 1970’s real-life Cannonball Runs across the USA

Cannonball Run Europe was formed as an event in 2002 in the spirit of the original Cannonball Runs  and has been going out to drive the roads of Continental Europe every summer since

ON EVERY CANNONBALL RUN THE ROUTE IS KEPT TOP SECRET, YOU WON’T KNOW WHAT ADVENTURE AWAITS YOU UNTIL THE VERY LAST MOMENT

OUR TEAM SPENDS MONTHS FINDING THE BEST ROUTES TO MAKE SURE YOUR TRIP IS ONE FILLED WITH MEMORIES TO LAST A LIFETIME

Supercars are great but they need to be driven on great roads, to great hotels. Great company, camaraderie and having everything organised for you makes it even better. Throw in great food and drink, a competitive element and lots of surprises and you have Cannonball. JUST DO IT!!
