Paris Amsterdam 2019 The History of rallying continues, 24-27 April 2019
The 1898 Parijs-Amsterdam-Parijs was the first ever car race/rally to cross international borders. Manufacturers were eager to prove that the car was a proper and reliable substitute for a horse and carriage.
After the 2018 revival edition with 80 pre-war cars, we will organize our second edition in 2019. From Parijs (Chantilly) to Amsterdam (Houthem).
This Pre-war rally will go from Chantilly to Houthem via Sedan and Arlon to Houthem (Maastricht) in just 4 day's. Nice and short day's and wonderfull hotels.
The adventures by Classic Events are designed as sociable and relaxed events with relative short day's and distances. Every now and then a highlight will be fitted into the route if possible. A lovely route with the best available hotels on route. You will have plenty of time for a relaxed drive and explore the countryside with rally friends old and new.
Fitting in these kind of events there will be some competition aswell. But only if you sign up for it. We always offer a route without any competition for the most smiles per mile! The competition can be a regeularity section, a special test or a navigation section on route.
Dag 1 – Chantilly – Sedan (about 270 km)
From the lovely Dolce hotel we will find our way to Reims for lunch at the historic Cicuit de Geuex which is stil in restauration. A warm Champagne welcome awaits! It is off to the Belgian border from there to end the day in in a medieval fortress in which there is now a lovely hotel.
Dag 2 – Sedan - Arlon (about 250 km)
Today's destination is a brand new hotel on the edge of Luxemburg. The Van der Valk Hotel Arlon where we will stay for 2 nights. Not before the grand finale of the day, finishing in the center of Luxemburg. We will keep the rest of this a surprise as work is still in progress... I hope this plan comes together!
Dag 3 – Arlon – Arlon (200 km)
Leave your suitcases for today, we will find them again in the evening! A wonderfull day of driving through the beautifull country of Luxemburg. Let us surprise you on this short but marvelous day!
Dag 4 – Arlon – Chateau st Gerlach (240 km)
Through Luxemburg and the Belgian Ardennes we will finish the rally in the south of the Netherlands in a small town called Houthem. This little town happens to have one of the best hotels in our little country, Chateau st Gerlach where we will have our prize giving dinner on the final night.
We will use the best available hotels on route which suite the special needs of a classic car event. Parking, athmosphere and functionality. Dinner usually starts at 20:00 o' clock and the winners of the day will be announced aswell as a little information about the day to come.
Routesystems and Competition
No rally without competition. We hope to have found the right combination between a nioce touring event and the competition parts to ensure a pleasurable day. The roadbook will be in Tulip style where the competition will be a bit of old fashioned mapreading.
