Rally the Globe are excited to announce an incredible new ‘Marathon’ event for vintage and classic cars in 2023, which will see crews journeying 12,000km south from the vast wilderness, unique wildlife and striking landscapes of Alaska to the tropical beaches of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico.
The extraordinarily diverse route will traverse asphalt and gravel roads lined with snow-capped mountains, wide open landscapes, alpine scenery, rugged deserts, ancient canyons, towering rock formations, beautiful beaches, giant sand dunes and tranquil fishing villages. With non-driving days spent in Whitehorse and Osoyoos (Canada), Moab and Palm Springs (USA), competitors will have time for some well-earned rest and reflection on their unforgettable experiences before the scenery transforms once more.
Three countries, crossing 38 lines of latitude in 30 days and one unforgettable journey. Pack your determination, competitive spirit, and sense of true adventure.
Our much-anticipated Vintage Dolomites, exclusive to pre-war cars, is now open to entries. The event will feature eight days exploring the incredible roads and scenery of the Italian Dolomites and Austrian Alps, starting and finishing close to Innsbruck.
With multi-night stays in Bolzano and Cortina D’Ampezzo, there will be time to explore the local restaurants, whilst a non-driving day in Cortina will also provide an opportunity for maintenance and repair work, a visit to the spa at our luxurious hotel or a wander through the chic resort town.
The event will have Regularity Sections on lesser-used Alpine Passes, which will be straight forward for the first few days but gradually become more challenging, driving tests at a variety of venues and time to enjoy this unique area.
As the coronavirus crisis continues, accompanied by ongoing unrest in Myanmar, the decision has been made to postpone the Road to Hanoi Marathon by a further year to early 2024 with an amended route to start in Ho Chi Minh City (formerly known as Saigon).
With Myanmar currently unsafe for international travellers, the new route will spend more time in both Vietnam and Thailand than was originally possible, exploring the stunning mountains and coastlines, and will now add Cambodia to the countries to be visited, as well as continuing with plans to venture into the less explored country of Laos.
The 8,500km route is packed full of gems including Angkor Wat, Chiang Mai, the Mekong River, the Ho Chi Minh Trail, Sa Pa, the Tram Ton Pass and Halong Bay.
All of the above events are open to entries now. You can view more details on each event and request an entry form by clicking on the links below.
