Event Highlights

Starting from our luxury five-star hotel perched above Barcelona, we venture north-east of the city and take on our first test and regularity before climbing into the Pyrenees. We continue along empty and twisty roads, with views of mountains to the right and the vast Spanish Plain to the left.  We journey through the Rioja region, where we take full advantage of a lunch halt in a stunning vineyard.

A return to mountain roads takes crews into the Sierra de la Demanda and the Sierra de Guadarrama, before heading to Salamanca for a well-earned rest day in our hotel overlooking the city. Fully refreshed, we will be back on the road heading west towards the River Douro and lunch in the border region with Portugal, before continuing to our overnight halt in a Parador set in beautiful countryside.

Crews then continue into Galicia, where the roads get twistier and the scenery more extreme, and where the nights are spent in a pair of former Benedictine monasteries. Our final couple of days see us exploring the stunning driving roads of the Picos de Europa, the shores of the Bay of Biscay and the Cordillera Cantabrica, arriving at the finish line in Santander for the winners to be announced at our Gala Dinner overlooking the ocean.
