Remember when you were a teenager and took that first road trip with your mates? Your first car, freedom calling and that incredible sense of adventure that lay ahead. It’s a memory most of us car-loving folk won’t ever forget. So imagine how vivid that memory could become if you threw in a circuit race along the way, or an autotest or two? How about a backdrop of the Himalayas or Italian Alps to boot? That’s essentially historic road rallying in a nutshell. One mammoth adventure, with mates, with a bit of everything sprinkled on top to help make it extra special.
Now, before the world went a bit nuts, and so long as your bank manager was agreeable, it was possible to travel the globe and get involved in some mighty rallies, such as from Peking to Paris, across Africa and eventually fully around the world.
Obviously those are off the table during these times of such restricted travel, but that hasn’t stopped leading vintage and classic car rally organiser Rally the Globe from coming up with new and innovative ways to run events closer to home for the time being.
