report for the 2016 Paris-Vienna Rally is now complete and may be viewed
via the link on our website event page – click here. The report describes
the thrilling rally route and numerous event highlights including the
stunning start location (the Chateau de Bourron in Bourron-Marlotte/Fontainebleau)
and an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to fly in a Zeppelin airship over Lake Constance on Day 2 of the event (click here for a short video).
Operating out of the largest hangar in Southern
Germany, the Zeppelin NT (pictured above) can accommodate up to 12 passengers
and flights are being offered to Paris-Vienna Rally crews on a first-come,
first-served basis. The price is 210 euros per person for 30 minutes or 320
euros for 45 minutes, to be paid to the Rally Round office on confirmation.
Further information may be found on the website of the Deutsche Zeppelin Reederei GmbH or
from the Rally Round office. To enquire or confirm your interest, please contact us as soon as possible, and by 15th
January 2016 at the latest.
The most recent Paris-Vienna entry
comes from Dennis Greenslade, who will be co-driving his 1967 Volvo Amazon
123GT with David Alderson. We were also pleased to receive an entry from Thunder Dragon Rally participant Mark Robinson, who submitted his entry form
within days of his return from Bhutan. There he drove a 1937 Rolls-Royce 25/30
with Yvonne Fuller but for Paris-Vienna he will be accompanied by Simon Parfitt
in a 1936 Talbot 105. Mark is a seasoned rally competitor, of course, having already
driven on several different continents and on Rally Round events such as
the 2013 Great South American Challenge and the 2014 Paris-Madrid Rally.
The Paris-Vienna field now stands at 43 cars, with more to come as several
competitors are waiting to confirm their co-driver before submitting their forms.
Entries close on 1st February 2016, so if you would like to join this exciting

In the meantime you may still take

Finally, don’t forget we are also accepting
entries for the spectacular Haka Classic Rally in New Zealand next November. Confirmed
cars to date span five decades, from a 1917 Rolls-Royce to a 1967 Jaguar,
although our latest entrants, John and Jinny Horton from the USA, have yet to
decide what they will drive. For more details and to view or download the
