oh yes, because there's more to mexico than the beaches of cancun and holiday resorts... a mexican road trip?

Leaving 4th February 2018

driving a muscle car on the ultimate mexican road trip... what's it all about?

Rust 2 Mexico is an adventure rally putting you at the wheel of a classic muscle car to drive across Mexico. You’ll take in sights that you wouldn’t believe existed such as stunning empty beaches and spectacular hotels. You'll try real Mexican tacos along with many other types of famous Mexican food. You'll party with the locals in exclusive beach resorts. You'll drive through the ancient tunnels of Guanajuato to the glorious soundtrack of a classic V8 engine! All this to the tune of a carefully planned route, specially selected accommodation and with comfortable drives each day you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the delicious Mexican food and stunning beaches!

The route will explore places most tourists would never find out about in Mexico... the route

Starting and finishing in Jalisco, the Mexican state famous for Mariachi music and Tequila. We will spend our first two nights in Guadalajara the capital of Jalisco, where you will get to know your muscle car as well as customise it up with the Rust 2 Mexico sticker pack. On the second night a dinner will be held in your honour with local friends of Rust 2 Mexico at a very traditional Mexican restaurant!

 

The rally begins on day three when we head to the breathtaking traditional town of  Guanajuato! From there we will visit the town of Tequila, where we have a specially arranged guided tour of the amazing Tequila distillery. The route then heads over to Pacific coast with planned stops at some of the most glorious beaches in Mexico. While the rally visits popular places like Puerto Vallarta, other stops are only known about through local knowledge and word of mouth, they won’t be on any tour operators guides. This is one of the most unique parts of the Rust 2 Mexico experience!

It's impressive, very impressive... the accommodation

On Rust 2 Mexico we take you to some pretty incredible places. The accommodation is a part of why we love this trip so much. No two nights accommodation are the same. Some nights it's an extremely luxurious 5 star hotel while other nights you'll be in an unforgettable quirky hotel and the next night at a traditional Mexican hacienda, but no matter where you are staying rest assured you will be well looked after.

They are the real deal, everything you ever dreamed about! muscle cars!

When you sign up you'll get to choose which muscle car you want to rent for the trip, they are available on a first come first served basis. You are welcome to swap and share cars on the trip if both teams agree. All our cars are V8's. Some are manual and some automatic. They aren't perfect, but they are muscle cars that will take you to the promised land. They all sound like your dreams with burbling exhausts and have stories to tell with their original classic interiors. It's a an experience in itself to sit at the wheel of one of these classic muscle cars! With your car comes a GPS with the complete route of the rally pre programmed and a cb radio for talking to the other teams whilst on the road.

We're not even sure the locals know where it is! empty beach?

It's all a part of the Rust 2 Mexico route, a deserted beach! Honestly, we don't think any Mexicans know about this amazing piece of paradise and we are thrilled to be taking you there to enjoy a moment that will surely be remembered forever. You can wake up in your villa and take a stroll down some steps and there it is. Beautiful clear sky, early morning sunrise and a beautiful deserted beach just for you!

yEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, THEY'VE WENT AND DONE IT AGAIN! tHE pIONEERS

They pioneered Rust 2 Romania in 2015, Rust 2 The Sahara in 2016 and in 2017 they pioneered Rust 2 Mexico. It's no easy task, they had no idea where they were going two weeks prior to leaving. They didn't even know a car would be provided for them at the destination. They tested out the cars, done wheel spins, ate the tacos and proved to us all that this rally is incredible. All the niggles have been ironed out now and we are ready to take new teams on this amazing adventure. Oh, the Chevrolet Malibu (the car on the far right) broke down twice so it's now been sold and replaced with something much, much better...

Friendly, warm, absolutely stunning... what's mexico like?

Mexico is a stunning country with lots to see and do. It's not exactly like you see in the movies, though it can feel like you’re in a movie when you are out there, especially with the muscle cars! The locals are really friendly and you'll get to meet plenty of them on the trip. There are many Mexicans who help run the Mexican side of the rally and are always invited to social events on the trip. We take you to the traditional towns in Mexico, the ones that only the tourists don’t know about with big cathedrals looking onto stunning squares filled with mariachi bands and street vendors selling tasty tacos. We guarantee you an authentic Mexican experience you'll never forget!.

well it all began back in 2005... why mexico?

Rust 2 Mexico is run and organised by Marko Fleming. Marko has been travelling to Mexico ever since his first trip there in 2005 having since spent a total of two years in Mexico. During that time he learned Spanish, bought a ’72 Mustang drove it to Vasteraas in Sweden to win the Long distance award in 2007 and participated in several Mexican road trips in various classic cars from Mustangs to Bel Air's. This experience and research over the years allowed him to create the ultimate muscle car rally which you can now be a part of!
