Inspired by auto sports and well-known for the high technicity of its atypical instruments, the watchmaking house Richard Mille is the obvious partner for this entirely feminine competition – and what a great one! The Rallye des Princesses Richard Mille between Paris and La Baule will be done aboard stunning classic cars (Citröen Traction Avant, Porsche 356 Pre-A 1600 Speedster, Benz 300…).
The Rallye des Princesses Richard Mille, a regularity race
In this open-road regularity race, the participants have to respect an hourly average. They must stay as close as possible to a specified time from A to B. Unlike a time trial, the ideal time is determined by the average speed, based on the vehicle’s age. A marking system that put all participants on equal terms.
You do not have to be an exceptional pilot or a steering wheel magician to enter the competition – but good concentration and an acute sense of precision are a must. However, an initiation day is mandatory before the rally: dashboard counters, stop watch and road book.
New itinerary for the 2021 edition
Starting point: Place Vendôme on Saturday the 29th of May. Then they must reach via small country roads Le Touquet, Deauville, Dinard and La Baule – five stages from 300 to 350 km. More than a regularity race, the new well-thought-out itinerary of the rallye 21st edition allow to explore French regions. Just like a very technical pastoral stroll, the pilots and their rides will enjoy driving from beach to beach, a first in this rally.
