Why Go With Us?

 

  • We have been successfully running classic rallies since 1999. Over the years we have covered 50 countries and developed a reputation for creating quality, well-researched and unique events.
  • Our rallies are fully supported by our experienced classic rally mechanics who will endeavour to keep you motoring on to the finish line. Limiting the number of entrants to our events means our mechanics can spend longer with your car should it require their attention.
  • We are committed to keeping the number of entrants to an absolute minimum. This means small, intimate rallies with a greater sense of camaraderie. This allows us to provide a more personal experience and a higher level of service.
  • We invest considerable time on route surveys scouting out the very best driving roads to be had. Where possible we always opt for quiet little back-roads instead of highways.
  • We provide SPOT satellite trackers to all participants. These little devices automatically transmit to the support crew and enable us to monitor the real-time location of all participants – invaluable in the event of an incident or break-down.
  • In addition to being provided a comprehensive tulip route book, we provide you an Ipad loaded with our unique mapping software which can be used in tandem with the tulips for seamless navigation.

Testimonials

“We had a terrific time. Probably the most enjoyable and sociable rally ever. A well thought-out route, a small group of very pleasant people, the camping was a highlight and fostered development of real and, we hope, lasting friendships…You and your team are to be congratulated for a superb event!”
Bibbi & Noel Stebbings
(Great Arc of India 2009)

 

“Penny and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the Venice to Monaco. Your route was inspired and some of the roads were truly spectacular and with first class hotels at the end of each day, we couldn’t have asked for more. Well done.”
Geoff & Penny Rawlings
(Venice – Monaco 2017)

 

“It has to be said that the route we followed was absolutely spectacular, a challenge for both the driver and the car. The navigator required a degree of imagination and large doses of fortitude with the GPS. We enjoyed the company of a great group of interesting people with a fantastic sense of humour and camaraderie. Our Christmas car list has grown incrementally.”
Ian & Ros Johnstone
(Himalaya Rally 2006)

 

“What a fabulous way to see so many countries. We were incredibly impressed with the organisation.The route was stunning and in some places very thought provoking. We stayed in such a variety of hotels. In Cambodia we even had our own butler! A truly memorable rally in which we made some lasting friendships. Roll on the next one!”
Roy & Margaret Hatfield
(Tiger Rally 2008)

 

“Thank you for a very enjoyable tour of Morocco. Your detailed route book was excellent, and the Ipad after initial doubts was invaluable. Such a pleasure to be directed properly especially the last few miles to the hotels!”
John & Jean Noble
(Atlas Rally 2018)

“The 2018 Atlas Rally was our first event with ROARR. Brilliantly organised by Adrian. Likeminded enthusiasts and the best and easiest navigation system in the classic rallying world. Their combination of unique Ipad mapping software and tulips so far ahead of other navigation systems it is not funny.”
Rob Garnsworthy
(Atlas Rally 2018)

 

“Well, what I can tell you? Popping down the road for milk or for Sunday lunch is hardly going to cut it, not after the mountains of Laos, the coasts of Vietnam or the ruins of Cambodia….”
Paul & Mary Kane
(Tiger Rally 2008)

 

“Fantastic and a great adventure. The route was always interesting and at times breathtakingly beautiful. The mechanical support was the best we have encountered on any of our classic road trips.”
Rob & Carole Brown
(Venice – Monaco 2017)

 

“Over the years, I have competed in many rallies around all parts of the world, the largest probably being the Peking to Paris in 1997. I was very impressed at the level of assistance given to the participants of the Himalaya rally, something I am quite unused to with other organisers. The route was spectacular and the places of interest prolific.”
Bill Ainscough
(Himalaya Rally 2006)

“This is the third rally we have done with ROARR and they get better and better. Because of their scale and the organisers’ attention to detail they can go to places that no other rally can reach: a unique and exceptional combination of fabulous hidden-away roads; outstanding boutique hotels; a perfect pace; and very well thought through practicalities. They are superb value for money too. Many thanks for a superb rally, we thoroughly enjoyed it and already look forward to next summer’s event.”
Phil Garratt & Kieron Brown
(Atlas Rally 2018)

 

““The Great Arc was a dream of a drive. I cannot imagine any other way of experiencing the sheer breadth of territory that we covered, seeing the Indian countryside by day and bedding down in heritage palaces at night. From the chill of the hill stations in Kerala, to the baking hot plains of Tamil Nadu and beyond, the Great Arc was a memorable distillation of the essence of India.”
Dina Bennett & Bernard Gateau
(Great Arc of India 2009)

 

“Adrian, I wanted to write to tell you how much we enjoyed your rally. The route was spectacular, the route book a work of art, and we enjoyed your choices of hotels with a difference. You also did a splendid job in recovering from the ferry cancellation. Tim and Sebastien [the mechanics] were great.”
