The Gstaad Palace Challenge

30 - 31 August 2019

“Every guest is a king, and every king is a guest.”


The 2nd edition of the acclaimed exclusive weekend rally at the Gstaad Palace Hotel in Switzerland

Luxury on wheels

After the highly acclaimed inaugural event this summer, won by Gianmaria Aghem and Rossella Conti in their stunning Lancia Fulvia Coupe, Rally Round is proud to announce the launch of the Gstaad Palace Challenge 2019 in cooperation with our friends at the Gstaad Palace Hotel and event sponsor Chopard. Like last year, this luxury weekend regularity rally will take place on the last weekend in August from Friday 30th August 2019 to Saturday 31st August 2019.

The Gstaad Palace Challenge 2019 is limited to a select group of just 30 classic cars to maintain the highest standards of service within a convivial atmosphere. As well a splendid two days of competitive classic rallying, competitors will indulge in all this exclusive destination has to offer – from panoramic views of the Swiss mountains to 5-star sumptuous comfort. Last, but not least, our  discerning rallyists will experience the hotel’s unrivalled reputation for discreet, refined hospitality with culinary highlights and sample the finest regional and international cuisine in the hotel’s world-renown restaurants.

Limited to 30 cars, this exclusive event is bound to fill up very quickly indeed so get in touch and request your entry form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

We look forward to seeing you at the start line!
