Final event preparations are complete and in the Italian Riviera resort of Sanremo, the Grand Hotel Des Anglais now eagerly awaits the arrival of the Rally Round team, 42 competitors and cars ranging from a 1924 Bentley to a brace of 1973 Chevrolet Corvettes, all set to take part in the 2017 Odyssey Italia. Flagged away on the morning of Monday September 10 and running over 14 days, this exceptionally luxurious and highly sociable rally will explore the Mediterranean islands of Corsica and Sardinia before finishing in glorious Tuscany on September 24. It’s the first Rally Round competition to be conceived by internationally-renowned route designer and Clerk of the Course Kim Bannister, and promises to be one of the most enjoyable events of the year.
