classic rallies & motoring adventures
We have been running classic car rallies since 1999 in some of the most exciting locations on the planet. We have run 12 rallies spanning 23 countries, and are always on the look out for the next great drive. Our rallies are first and foremost about enjoying great driving in the company of good friends. Often challenging, but always non-competitive.
The route has evolved considerably following the route survey, and after much discussion, we decided to run Cartagena down to Lima, with a loop around Peru’s southern highlands. Colombia, Ecuador & Peru are three truly phenomenal countries, offering up some of the best driving roads in all of South America.
Classic Persia, a drive across the once mighty Persian Empire from it’s westernmost reaches in Istanbul, through the empire’s ancient capital Persepolis and across the Persian Gulf to finish in Dubai. Meet us in Istanbul, and we’ll take care of the rest. The gateway between Europe and Asia, an incredible city. As on the Great Game we stay at the world’s greatest traveller’s hotel, the Pera Palace.
Starting in Broome, The Savannah Way passes through the Kimberly region of Western Australia along the Gibb River Road, on up through the great National Parks of the Northern Territory and along challenging dirt tracks into Queensland to finish in Cairns. Some variations of The Savannah Way hardly necessitate leaving tarmac. Of course these aren’t the ones that interest us.
Fellow overlanders we met in Peru implored us to take the magical 200km stretch of tarmac east to Chachapoyas via Leimebamba. Here are a few short seconds from a jaw-droppingly incredible 8 hour drive.
