The Modball Rally is an international road rally which takes place on public roads in Europe, USA and Australia. Founded in 2007, the Modball Rally is not a race, or truly a rally either, with no official timekeeping and no prize for the fastest driver. Instead, it is a collaboration of car enthusiasts with a taste for adventure, embarking on an international road trip across Europe with their modified cars and plenty of parties. Despite sports cars being the popular choice for this rally, any car with at least two modifications (Mechanical or cosmetic) can, in fact, take part. Previous years have seen modified limousines, an RV and even a fire engine.
This year the Modball Rally route through Europe starts in London before crossing the pond over to Paris before heading off to Lyon, Monaco and Barcelona before finally reaching the last destination in Valencia for the race track and awards party.
Amongst the drivers this year is Official Watches’ own Luca Lucas. Lucas has said that cars are – and have always been – an important part of his life since he was brought up with a father who was fanatical about them. It’s hardly a surprise that Lucas would want to embark on this trip as he too loves driving and the Modball Rally is a particular trip he’s always wanted to partake in.
He’ll be making his journey across Europe along with over a hundred other drivers in a Porsche 911 Turbo S, an ultimate supercar that truly needs no real introduction to any car fanatics out there. Lucas will also be equipped with a stunning Richard Mille RM011 Felipe Massa luxury watch, the case shape of which greatly mirrors that of the Porsche 911, making the two of them a great contemporary duo that anyone would want to cross the continent with.
This post will be updated over the course of the event to keep you updated with everything happening with Lucas, OfficialWatches Porsche 911 Turbo S and Modball Rally Europe 2016.
