Rally Round is pleased to announce a very special event for 2017. Running over 14 days in late summer (September 10-24), Odyssey Italia is the most luxurious rally we have yet devised, an island-hopping Mediterranean adventure that starts
from the historic Ligurian port of Genoa and explores the ancient myths and legendary rally roads of
Corsica, Sardinia and Elba before finishing in glorious Tuscany.
Limited to 50 veteran, vintage and classic cars of a pre-1969 type and based exclusively in four- and five-star hotels adjacent to fine beaches, Odyssey Italia will be an exciting and competitive regularity rally. Nevertheless in addition to thrilling drives on some of Europe’s most challenging roads there will be plenty of time for leisurely lunches, sightseeing
and socialising with friends old and new; the relaxed schedule will allow participants fully to savour the region’s marvellous archeological treasures, cultural wonders, sun-drenched landscapes and fine cuisine.
The event is suitable for crews of all ages and experience levels; you do not need competition licences, helmets or fireproof overalls and the route will be set out in a comprehensive tulip roadbook with no tricky map work, night driving, unsafe speeds or car-breaking terrain. As ever, we
will be accompanied by fully qualified medical and
mechanical support teams as well as a luggage transport service, and as part of Rally Round’s mission to make classic rally participation as easy as possible we will provide assistance with shipping and insurance, plus expert guidance for novice crews on car preparation, rally timing and navigation.
competitors are advised to reserve their places early, as demand for this exceptional event is
sure to be high. We will be publishing more details and a brochure in the near future; in the meantime if you have any questions please contact our multilingual rally office team – contact
details and an online enquiry form may be found on our dedicated Odyssey Italia web page [click here]. We look forward to hearing from you!
