Barcelona – Sitges Vintage Rally 55th Edition
If you’re a car lover, you must know that from the 10th to the 12th of March, Sitges celebrates its 55th classic rally. Only cars manufactured before 1928 can participate in this legendary rally, driving along the usual route between Barcelona and Sitges. The event will group more tan 60 teams from all Spain and some other countries.
The rally has three phases that coincide with the three days of the celebration.
On the first day, the concentration will take place on Saturday March the 2nd. This day presents the main novelty of this edition: a big change in scenery. The rally show will be situated in front of the Illa Diagonal, between Numancia and Entença streets in Barcelona. Vehicle’s will enter the closed park from 10 am until 17:30. This new area, with its central location and being open to the public on a shopping day, will provide the event with high visibility and a bigger presence in Barcelona that day.
The second day, Sunday the 3rd, is dedicated to the rally celebration. This is the day that the peculiar way that distinguishes the Barcelona-Sitges Grand Prix from other rallies is clear: speed is not rewarded, its the beauty of the cars that is important, how well the car is conserved and how true to the era the driver is dressed in their vintage driving clothes. The rally will begin at 8.30 am, when all the cars meet at the Plaça Sant Jaume of Barcelona. After a breakfast hosted by the city of Barcelona, the show will begin at 11 am, with cars promenading down Ferran street. The cars will tour some of the main streets of the Capital City, before moving on to neighboring cities including: Hospitalet de Llobregat, Cornella de Llobregat, Sant Boi, Vilamoura, Gava, Castelldefels and passing along the famous coasts of the Garraf, until as they make their way to the Aiguadolç port in Sitges at 12:30pm.
The third and last day will be dedicated primarily to the participants and is made for their pleasure. Here they will drive a special route through Barcelona on their way to complete this 55th edition of the Barcelona-Sitges Rally with a meal.
