On Rico Rally you will stay at luxury overnight locations and have surprises along the way with a final night get together for food, drink & awards before returning home.
Col de Turini
Famous for its World Rally heritage the Col de Turini is a truly great road with twists, turns, short straight blasts and stunning views – watch the video
Cruising along the French Riviera with locations to stop for a relaxing sunshine cocktail over looking the ocean such as St-Tropez, Antibes, Frejus and Monaco.
The Agnel climbs through France to the border with Italy Despite and being the highest international pass of the Alps, is almost unknown and in turn not heavily used – ideal for having a blast in your car.
Gorges du Verdon
The Verdon Gorge, in south-eastern France, is a river canyon often considered to be one of Europe’s most beautiful. It is about 25 kilometres long and up to 700 metres deep.
Not many cities have managed to retain their historic features quite as successfully as Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The Old Town, built in a loop of the river Aare, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy strolling through this architectural gem in the shelter of the medieval arcades and past a host of historic treasures.
Col du Galibier
The ninth highest paved road in the Alps and the sixth highest mountain pass, in the southern region of the French Dauphiné Alps near Grenoble, offering magnificent views on both the ascent and the descent. It is often the highest point of the Tour de France.
One of the largest lakes in Western Europe and the largest body of water in Switzerland, greatly exceeding in size all others that are connected with the main valleys of the Alps.
Col du Granier
Starting from Chapareillan, the road weaves up the Col du Granier for 10.5 km, with a small cafe at the top for a break.
Our route takes in some of the best Alpine passes and driving roads in Europe. Combined with the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera it is the European Car Rally for everyone.
