Event Highlights

The fourth in Rally the Globe’s popular Carrera series of events will take eleven days to explore the array of scenic delights and perfect driving roads that France has to offer, utilising the unparalleled knowledge and support of our French Route Coordinator – legendary co-driver Denis Giraudet. 

Starting in the chic 19th century seaside resort of Deauville on the Normandy coast, we set out in to the pays D’Auge and a scenic route through beautiful, historic towns on our way to Chambord. The route takes us through the Chateaux de Loire region, famous for its castles, to an overnight stop in La Rochelle on the Atlantic coast.

We continue along the way with a night in Cognac, before heading east to a rather splendid, privately owned racing circuit for a test and some refreshment. We spend an afternoon in Le Forêt de la Double, before heading to what is probably the most famous wine-producing region in the world, Bordeaux. Here a rest day awaits in our spa hotel in Saint-Emilion.

Fully rejuvenated, crews head into the mountains for the first time, before we arrive in the world famous mediaeval city of Carcassonne. From there, serious rally country awaits, in particular roads made famous by the legendary Rallye Monte Carlo, as we head north to Valence.

The next day we lunch in the Ardeche, before descending into the Rhone Valley then into the Alps and our overnight halt in the ski resort of Courchevel. The next day brings us high mountain passes and stunning canyons, with our penultimate night spent in the Var countryside.

The mountains behind Nice and the legendary Col de Turini will provide the morning’s entertainment, before a short, but twisty, descent to the Riviera and our finish in opulent Cannes, where we plan to celebrate in style on the beach at our hotel on the famous Boulevard La Croisette.

There will be two or three Regularity sections each day on twisty but quiet minor roads. On most days there will be a Test on private land, test tracks and race circuits.

Roads used:

All-asphalt surfaces will be used. We use minor roads to explore areas that few tourists will ever see, some of which may be bumpy, but we go out of our way to avoid rough roads.


We will use top quality hotels and provide a group dinner most evenings, other than on non-driving and some other days. Lunches and coffee halts will also be provided in a variety of venues. We will provide a van to assist with transporting your luggage between hotels (sensible weight restrictions will apply).
