PARTY TIME

Along the way around the Baltic Sea, we’re going to party like crazy together—twice.

At the Arctic Circle, we’ll celebrate the midsummer while taking a bath in the Arctic Ocean and dancing around the campfire. 
And in the wild woods of Baltic States, we’ll pitch a tent together during the magical White Nights.
The exact party locations are staying our little secret up until the Rally Start….

THE ROADBOOK

At the Starting Line of the Baltic Sea Circle in Hamburg, your team will be given the Roadbook, which is packed with useful tips for your route, unbelievable challenges, and plenty of suggestions to maximize your fun and get the most out of your adventure.

The activities and adventures in the Roadbook are best undertaken as a team. Creativity and a talent for improvisation are your best assets here!

No obligations, just a load of possibilities!

LIVE TRACKING

With SAC TRACK—the live tracking app for all rally teams—your friends and relatives can follow your team live throughout the trip.

You can also attach your best photos to the SAC TRACK and, at the end of the rally, download the route you took.

THE ROADWAY

The conditions of the roadways can vary considerably during the rally:
from straight asphalt lanes through marvellous Scandinavian forests,
to dirt roads to the glacier top, through to the Russian “slalom pothole roulette”…

Anything’s possible and there’s a little something for everyone!

LODGING

From "wild" camping, to a rustic log cabin with a beaver, to a posh hotel—anything goes! You’re free to choose your own lodgings at every stage of the trip depending on your budget and your notion of “adventure.”

Even playing it by ear and deciding as you go has worked out for teams in the past and generally isn’t a problem in the time period the rally takes place.

RALLY KIT

The Rally Kit has everything that belongs at an official rally:

  • rally vehicle branding with the official Baltic Sea Circle logos and your official rally starting numbers
  • rally T-shirts
  • awesome additional Baltic Sea Circle merchandise

Your team will receive the Rally Kit four weeks before the Rally Start.

PIMP YOUR CAR

Creativity pays off!
Teams with extravagant costumes and eye-catching vehicle decorations will be awarded extra points by the rally jury.
Whether you dazzle your fellow drivers with slick racing stripes and fluttering flags or go full techie with flashing disco lights on your radiator, we’re looking forward to seeing how you bring it.

Anything goes, as long as it’s street-legal.
