The Longest Adventure Rally On The Planet

What you need to know

The Atlantic Pacific Ocean Drive is kicking off for the first time ever. Be among the first intrepid souls to rev up for the world premiere of the longest rally on the planet! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, especially because only a limited number of teams will be permitted to sign up.

The application for the Atlantic Pacific Ocean Drive opens on 28 July 2020 at 18:00h. 


Rally Start

Hamburg, Germany
The official rally start will take place on 17 July 2021 in the heart of Hamburg.

Since each team can set its own pace during the rally, the finish line in Vladivostok will be open for you for a few days. At the finish line, you will receive your rally certificate as well as support with the handling of the vehicle return transport.


Winners ceremony

So that all teams can celebrate the successful end of the Atlantic Pacific Ocean Drive together, we celebrate a big finish party with award-giving-ceremony back in Hamburg.


Your Charity

Collect €750 for great charity projects.
The money can go to projects that we have carefully vetted to ensure that all contributions go where they should—to the people who truly need them. Or you are free to pick a charity project that has always been dear to your heart.
Charity donations can be collected any time from the date you sign up to the moment you cross the Finish Line. More

How many members can a team have?

There’s no upper limit, but remember, you all have to fit in the car!



No GPS, no navigation system, limited highway driving = a bigger and better adventure.


Party Time

So that you and your team get to know your fellow rallying rough riders, we’re organizing a huge “Goodbye, Europe” party somewhere along the way. The exact location? We’ll let you know at the start!



It’s a rally, not a race, so set your own pace. Your Roadbook provides you with various opportunities to throw even more unknowns into your adventure. You’ll get the Roadbook at the rally start in Hamburg.
