The 2nd Paris-Madrid Rally

22-25 May 2014

"A fabulous event!"

Latest News & Entries

Launched in 2013 on the 110th anniversary of the infamous 1903 Paris-Madrid road race, the widely acclaimed Paris-Madrid Rally ran for a second time over four days in May 2014. Once again a superb field of veteran, vintage and pre-war machines attempted to win the prestigious Charles Jarrott Trophy on a beautiful and evocative route through France and Spain, whilst a new class for post-war classics contested a separate award. Building on the success of 2013, we made several improvements to the event including additonal route checks to ensure that the road book was as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Indeed even our most eagle-eyed competitor was unable to find a single error! Again starting from the Trianon Palace in Versailles and shadowing the 1903 race route on picturesque roads, crews spent their first night in the delightful city of Limoges. Suitably refreshed, they then pressed on through the world’s finest wine country and over the Pyrenees to rest for a second night in Pamplona, where the 2013 rally received such an overwhelmingly warm welcome. On the third day, the route crossed spectacular Spanish landscapes to finish in the north-eastern outskirts of Madrid at the beautiful Parador de Alcalá de Henares, set in a medieval World Heritage site famed as the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes, author of Don Quixote. As with all Rally Round events, the competition was designed to allow everyone to participate on equal terms whilst enjoying thrilling roads, a variety of entertaining tests, the best accommodation, good food and highly agreeable company, all hosted by a rally organisation that genuinely cares for its customers. Several crews took advantage of our ‘Arrive and Drive’ option, designed for those who have a problem with their car or who live overseas and do not wish to ship a vehicle to Europe for a short rally; for more details about this, please contact the Rally Office. The 2nd Paris-Madrid Rally attracted a delightful group of competitors in a fabulous array of historic cars dating from 1903 to 1969, and was judged a terrific success in spite of less than wonderful weather. You will find the full entry list and results below, a collection of dramatic photographs in our gallery, and a day-by-day account of the event in our blog, accessed via the button at the top of this page.
