Sitges Vintage Car Rally
A small coastal town just south of Barcelona, Sitges is a perfect option for those seeking a peaceful resort with easy access to a lively city. It is known or its popular February carnivals and parades, but Sitges also holds a unique classic car rally each year.
2020 marks the 62nd edition of the rally which will take place from 21st to 23rd March and attracts both tourists and locals. The rally was established in 1959 and classic car enthusiasts gather from all corners to see grand pre-1924 museum vehicles meet and race. A number of classic brands such as Ford, Rolls Royce and Fiat take part, but one of the most popular makes featured is Spanish-owned Hispano-Suiza whose models are famous for their grand vintage designs.
The rally takes the cars and their owners from Barcelona to Sitges via numerous Catalan towns and each year locals are delighted to see these unique and irreplaceable vehicles pass through their hometowns. The winner is not the quickest motorist but in fact the one with the most original car, not to mention, that a costume in keeping with the year the car was created is encouraged and only serves to aid the lucky winner to victory.
If the idea of seeing the vintage cars lined up along the promenade in Sitges tickles your fancy, or you fancy a break in this charming coastal town, we represent both the Hotel Antemare y Spa and the URH Sitges Play through our European Hotels Collection.
