The Rally

The Ultimate Adventure Through Southeast Europe!

The Balkan Express 2018


10 days of undiscovered terrain….
Down dusty roads, along white beaches, overtop rugged mountain ranges and through the secluded wilderness—right through the heart of the former Eastern Bloc.

Experience the pulsing metropolises of Southeast Europe and discover cities and towns where time seems to have stood still. It’s the ultimate old-school auto rally: The Balkan Express!

Next August, we need to be ready to embark on one of the wildest adventure road trips of our life’s, as we make our way through the fascinatingly diverse landscape of Southeast Europe. Cruise our modern classic—rally vehicles (which should be at least 20 years old) across 14 countries in 10 days, covering 4,000 km: all without the help of GPS or navigation systems.

The Route


Meet The Team

Burn baby, Burn!!



Leander van Delden, 38

Team Captain

aka Hannibal
Dutch

International globetrotter, who hasn’t done many rallies, but has been driving a lot across Europe. As horsepower lover, he is mainly responsible for the driving and the filming along the way. Can also setup the occasional tent and has experience bribing border guards.

Redmer van Delden, 34

Team Mechanic

aka The Handyman
Dutch

On of the more experienced members of the team. Mainly responsible for Kalle’s & Falko’s well-being before and during the trip. When he’s not working he will be busy keeping his other old Saab up and running. Can also do a fair bit of navigational work and cooking.

Arnoud Prinsen, 37

Team Navigator

aka Face
Dutch

Does more miles on his bike than in his car. Only got his driving licence in August 2014 (after 16 years of nagging by Leander) and bought his first car a year later. So no driving or rally experience at all. Wondering why he is coming? For the adventure and the long straight stretches in Northern Scandinavia. Is hoping he learned enough during his geography study to navigate the team across the Baltic.

Ewout Dellemijn, 21

Team Cashier

aka The Tall-Guy
Dutch

One of the rookies in this years team. Ewout is a primary school teacher to be, therefore he will supply us with all kinds of children’s rhymes on the way. One of the rookies in this years team.

Wesley van Oirsouw, 21

Team Media-Officer

aka The Lensman
Dutch

The other rookie team member on this years adventure. Wesley will be mainly seen from behind the camera, as he will do anything to get the perfect movie-shot or picture. Equipped with all kinds of tools to capture this journey in the best possible way!


Kalle, 24

aka Swedish Brick
SAAB 9000 CSE

Team Ride #1

Kalle joined Redmer’s car collection in October 2017 and makes it therefore one of the rookies of the team, but comes with a lot of road experience.
● 2.0L (non-turbo) of brutal engineroarrrr
● 130 horses under the bonnet
● 5-speed manual transmission
● 5 seats
● 1 big trunk
● 1 towbar

Before we leave Kalle will get some serious TLC to get us home safe again. Brakes and suspension will get an upgrade and the interior and exterior will get a minor facelift. He will look great!

Falko, 24

aka The Bimmer
BMW 5er Touring e39

Team Ride #2

Falko, a piece a proper German engineering, joined the team in January 2018 and makes it therefore one of the rookies of the team.
● 2.0L V6 Turbo with brutal engineroarrrr
● 130 horses under the bonnet
● 5-speed manual transmission
● 5 seats
● 1 big trunk
● 1 towbar

Falko is also in need of some serious TLC to get us ready to go. All kinds of minor (and a bit more) major things on the interior and exterior will be solved. And we make sure Falko will look great too!

All adventures create data, and great data creates better adventures.

Charity

Having an adventure you’ll never forget is one thing. But helping others while you’re at it? That’s where we come in, in fact, it’s the idea behind all S.A.C rallies.

We have to round up €500 for charity projects. The money can go to projects that the organisation has carefully vetted to ensure that all contributions go where they should—to the people who truly need them. But we are free to pick a charity of our own choice to donate to as well, and that's what we are doing.

What charity project do we support?

Tomoka Support

This project is about to support the people living in Avegame, Togo (Africa), a remote region of the country with little to no infrastructure. The money we raise will be used to build toilets, buy books for the school, and help educate people in how to farm crops which they can sell.

Momenteel wordt er hard gespaard voor een aantal noodzakelijke investeringen. Wat is er dringend nog meer nodig en daaruit zijn de onderstaande 5 kleine projecten (onder de €2000) tot doel gesteld:

  • Een solarinstallatie voor elektriciteit in de medische post in Kpékpéta stond bovenaan,
  • Een solarkoelkast in de medische post om vaccins en andere medicijnen te kunnen bewaren,
  • Een wateropslagtank
  • Latrines bij de school in Kpékpéta
  • Schoolbankjes voor de 2 klasjes voortgezet-onderwijs.
  • Natuurlijk blijven waterputten prioriteit houden, er zijn er 21(!) nodig
