The 18th Gibraltar International Classic and Vintage Vehicle Rally DAY 2 information

Day2 Information – 19th May 2019.

On the 18th we take you deep into the Rock.  On the 19th you will enjoy a run in the sunshine of the Spanish countryside.

Following a day full of activities, classic car displays, historic tours with lots of socialising, eating and drinking the second day of the rally continues with a classic car run and lunch.

We will begin by meeting for breakfast from10 am at Hotel Casa Bernardo Macias near junction 116 close to San Roque. The plan is to leave at 11 am for a scenic drive in the Alcornocales Natural Park. We will be using minor roads which have very little traffic and in fact the entire drive will not include any main roads. There will be a coffee stop and a further stop for drinks and snacks before eventually arriving at a restaurant in the area of Los Barrios for lunch. Please be sure to tick the correct option i.e. Saturday, Sunday or Both in the online enrollement form below. The cost of participation on thre 19th is expected to be €25.00 per person and will be collected on the 19th May (on the day) but please be sure to sign on correctly to make planning easy for your committee.
We need to know how many people will be taking part as we have to book the restaurant so please can you reply if you are taking part on the Sunday. It is not mandatory that you have to drive a classic car but we would like as many classic cars as possible. It will be a very easy drive of a little over 100 km and the roads are not fast roads but the scenery is beautiful. Also there will be 10.5 km of road that we sure most of you will never have been on.
Register here for either of the days or both. You will need your car reg number and insurance details.
