Rally Europe Like It's Never Been Done Before
Love to drive? Love to party? Want to see lots of Europe in just 7 days? The Death Trap Rally is your motoring Trifecta then. The rally bills itself as "3000 miles. 8 Countries. 1 Week." As organizers say, "Don't be under the impression this week will be easy, we expect hard driving and harder partying in unequal measure. DTR '15 is for people ready to take it to the next level, when everyone else has gone home!" RELATED: See photos of the 2014 Local Motors Rally Fighter
It kicks off June 6, 2015, in Luxemborg with a reception followed by live music at a local night spot. Then the driving kicks off with a trip to Europe's motoring mecca: Nürburgring.
As if that's not an adrenaline rush, that night you check into a hotel in Berlin. Where you can base jump. From your hotel.
Then your trip takes you to Kaunas, Lithuania: the rally's halfway point. You're promised a night that separates the men from the boys. No mention what happens if your rally team has females.

From Lithuania it's off for a short drive (by Death Trap rally standards) to Riga, the capital of Latvia. Continuing the death trap theme (i.e. driving Nürburgring, hotel base jumping), you can fire off guns at a driving range. Then it's an overnight cruise to Stockholm – with no sleeping allowed.
From Stockholm you motor to Oslo, Norway, for a rock concert. The next day, ears probably still ringing, you head to Copnhagen and a four-star hotel that looks like something out of Star Wars.
And where else could a Death Trap Rally end then Amsterdam? Dinner, awards, and another concert. After that you're free to sample whatever Europe's Sin City has to offer.

The beautiful part of Death Trap Rally? It's all for charity. Fry your brain cells and help your fellow man. Organizers say 10% of the profits go to support ABF – the Soldier's Charity. It's a British organization for veterans.
Cost for the Death Trap Rally starts at $1666 for quad occupancy. Clear your calendar for June 6 to June 13, 2015, and pack a spare liver.
