Previous Rallies

Friday November 8th 1990 :- 56 Teams took part in the first Run including the Oldest Mini – a totally restored 1960 Mini van – which suffered a few problems when the carburattor froze on the Alpine roads. The Minis were joined by a faboulous Lamborghini Miura P 400 restored by the owners as a replica of the one featured in the Michael Caine film. A total of £ 58.000,- were donated to Children in Need and Childline as a result of the run advertised as 24hours from Trento to Brighton !

For the next seven years Jobbers – the name given by a journalist from YOU magazine to the enthusiastic Mini drivers – have driven off-the-beaten-track roads exploring the Italian Region of Trentino and raised hundreds of pounds in aid of the NSPCC. In 1998 the City of Imola was invaded by The Italian Job Minis and we have been welcomed in cities such as Bologna, Ferrara, and Ravenna. The Ferrari Museum in Maranello became also a usual stop for the Mini. A Mighty Million sponsorship was raised for the Millennium and by than we were supporting NCH-Action for children.

The Navigational Rally was started in 1992 and has became over the years always more competitive with the added thrills of driving on the Ferrari Formula One circuit and then, since 2001, on the Lingotto, the test track of the Fiat Car Company in Turin.

We were truly privileged to be invited in 2005 to Fiorano – the very own Ferrari circuit - and to have in 2007 an exclusive visit of the Royal Palace in Monza. We have explored Venice (on foot !) and enjoyed a boat ride around the Laguna up to the Rialto Bridge. We have visited the beautiful resort of Stresa and had a luncheon visit to the Borromean Islands on Lake Maggiore.

Our 20th Anniversary in 2009 coincided with the 50 of the Mini and 40th of the Film and we celebrated in style by invading the Italian Capital City - Rome! Our celebration itinerary included driving on many racing track starting with the Lingotto roof top and ending with the Ferrari in Imola and in between we enjoyed and unique drive on Monza Old Racing Track and a day of sport at Vallelunga in Rome and Mugello near Florence.

In 2013 the very first Italian Job Sunshine Coach was presented to Heron Dale School in West Sussex. Heron Dale is an incredibly special school which cares for incredibly special children with a range of learning difficulties and mobility issues.

The 2014 Event marked 25 brilliant years of fundraising. Each edition of the Italian Job has been different but every single one has been unforgettable thanks in no small measure to the passionate dedication of the participants of the event… otherwise affectionately known as ‘Jobbers’. Just like us they fervently believe in our motto which has stood us proud since we started the Italian Job in 1990… namely the idea of ‘Raising money for children in a fun way’ .

Who What Why? About Us

The Italian Job Mini car rally was launched in 1990 as a way of having a fun holiday and, at the same time, raising money for children's charities. Since then we've gone from strength to strength.

Now in our 26th year, the Italian Job gives you the chance of an adventure holiday on four wheels - making new friends, exploring new places, going off the beaten track, sampling Italy's famously good food and wine and improving your driving and navigational skills. What more could you ask for?

We do all the work so all you have to do is enjoy the experience. Oh, and raise some money for our nominated children's charity! Click here to find out more!

Thanks to you all for the trip this year I/we don’t know how you do it. Your skills in organising this last trip were exceptional and second to none. The time I got with my son James is only just second to the trip itself. What a great time and will be with us forever.

Steve and James – team 60.

Just a note to say thanks for a superb trip! We have both really enjoyed it and look forward to competing again at some point in the future. Please convey our thanks to Freddie & everyone else who helped organise such a memorable event.

Best regards Simon Shuttleworth (more…)
