The Rally for Ambitious Bon Vivants
From 30 August to 1 September 2019, fans of sophisticated car culture rejoice: as the Gstaad Palace-Challenge goes into its fourth year, fantastic cars, challenging roads, and breathtaking views await once again.
“We give ambitious drivers the opportunity to prove their skills and show off their precious cars”, says Andrea Scherz, General Manager of Gstaad Palace. In addition to the unique driving experience, culinary treats cater to the modern bon vivants’ needs. Sponsored by the Banque Chopard, the event is as exclusive as it is exquisite.
FRIDAY: A COMPETETIVE START
On the morning of Friday, 30 August 2019, participants begin with the official scrutineering. After a welcome lunch buffet at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace in Montreux, the rally starts with a competitive drive over beautiful mountain passes to Gstaad, followed by a dinner at the Gstaad Palace. Please note: the faster you are today, the better you are off tomorrow – Friday’s results determine Saturday’s starting numbers.
SATURDAY: MAKE IT COUNT
After a sumptuous breakfast, things get serious again: the ambitious route takes you through the Jura region towards Fleurier, where drivers are invited for lunch at the legendary Maison Chopard. On the way back to Gstaad, the roads across the beautiful Bernese Seeland region put cars and drivers through their paces. This is your last chance, so better make it count! Back at the Gstaad Palace, the award ceremony and yet again a delicious dinner take place – winners each receive a watch by Chopard.
The rally is limited to just 30 cars, and only classic car models from 1950 to 1986 are admitted to the race. Are you intrigued? Apply today!
