Rally Round’s period-dressed summer rallies traditionally pay tribute to the pioneers of early motorsport, the brave automobilists who raced from city to city on public roads, invariably starting from Paris. The first such event (retrospectively called the first Grand Prix) was held in 1895 and ran from Paris to Bordeaux and back; as the race was technically for four-seat machines, the official winner was Paul Koechlin on a Peugeot but it was Emile Levassor who took the glory, having arrived 11 hours earlier on a two-seat Panhard et Levassor, at an average speed of 24.5km/h.

Rather than follow the straightforward 1895 race route, our 2019 rally will go much further, exploring the charming country roads of central and south-west France - and northern Spain - before finishing in the glamorous seaside resort of Biarritz. Clerk of the Course Fred Bent is already planning a wonderfully varied route from Versailles to the Atlantic coast, via the mountains of the Pyrenees.

As on previous rallies, the vintage classes will compete for the Charles Jarrott Trophy, whilst the classics fight for their own award. Above all, however, Paris-Biarritz will be a relaxed and highly sociable contest, suitable for experts and novices alike. You will enjoy top-quality accommodation, leisurely lunch and refreshment halts and the entire route will be set out in straightforward tulip-style roadbook, with special pre-event briefings on rally timing and navigation for novices; we will of course be accompanied by expert medical and mechanical support teams as well as a luggage transport service. It’s sure to be great fun, so we hope you can join us. We look forward to hearing from you!
