FLIGHT OF THE CONDOR RALLY 2019
11 November – 8 December 2019
“Rallying isn’t just about how long it takes you to get from the start to the finish. It’s the adventure you have along the way, the people you meet, and the unique moments you share”
A 7,200km adventure and regularity rally exploring the wonders of the Andes
Join us on a breathtaking journey through three of the most spectacular countries South America. As we explore Colombia, Ecuador and Peru you’ll discover stunning coastlines, soaring peaks, vibrant rainforest, ancient mysteries and amazing cultures, and this being a Rally Round event you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy them all with friends old and new. This highly sociable rally is one you will never forget.
The Rally Round team has vast experience – not least in South America – as Rally Director Liz Wenman and Clerk of the Course Kim Bannister have organized some of the longest and most successful rallies in the world. Flight of the Condor is suitable for experts and novices alike in vintage and pre-1977 classic cars, and whether you take part in the regularity (Time-Speed-Distance) competition or prefer to tour, you’ll be supported all the way. We can help you with everything from crew and car preparation to shipping and insurance, and on the event you may rely on our highly skilled medical and mechanical support teams. Our safety record is second to none and there will be no hazardous speeds, car-breaking terrain, night driving or trick navigation – the entire route will be set out in a comprehensive roadbook.
The rally starts on the shores of the Caribbean, in Cartagena, Colombia, and covers 7,200km in 28 days before finishing in Lima, the capital of Peru. En route you’ll visit famous sites such as Machu Picchu and the Nazca Lines, spend time in the Amazonian forest and experience some of the world’s greatest roads, driving across awesome deserts and over 4,500-metre passes in the Andes. You’ll find more details in the event brochure, which you may read via the link on this page.
We already have some great entries. From the UK, Jonathan and Karen Turner have yet to decide what car they will bring while their friends Simon Arscott and Deborah Lloyd are torn between a couple of 4.5-litre Bentleys. Also Bentley-powered are Marco Rollinger and Marianne Hengesch from Luxembourg in a 4.5 Le Mans, while Joshua Bruner of the USA has entered a 1964 Porsche 356C Cabriolet. Australians Steve and Ruth Lambert will be driving their faithful 1935 Ford Sedan Fordor, and their compatriots Bruce Power and Jill Robillard are brnging a 1939 Chevrolet Business Coupe.
