Rico Rally – Run to the Sun
Our ‘Run to the Sun’ European road trip took 50+ cars from all walks of life, down to Monaco and back through the Swiss Alps, covering 2,000 miles around some of the best driving roads that Europe has to offer. On the way to Monaco we took the superb Route Napoleon and then the even better D2 – these roads are a real test of car and driver, and take in some stunning scenery. After a night in Monte Carlo we headed up and down the Col de Turini – twisty roads that just climbed and climbed. After a break at the cafe we then drove through the Italian countryside to Varese. The following day was through the Swiss Alps – the weather ranged from baking hot sunshine to hailstorms making it a magical day crossing 4 passes. And finally we headed to Spa in Belgium for our final night dinner and awards. We just squeezed in a visit to Spa circuit on the final morning before heading back to Calais for the ferry back home.
