Over the last nine years we’ve seen rallies cross France in a variety of ways and take us to destinations in France, Spain, Switzerland and Italy. This year, as it’s our 10th Anniversary, we’re taking ralliers back to the popular destination that made memories for our first event – Monaco. We’ll be packing the black tie for a dinner in the jewel in the crown of the French Riviera.

The destination

Monaco needs little introduction. The tiny City State on the French Mediterranean coast is famed for its location, superyachts, grand prix, casino, harbour and general trappings of luxury. Whether you’re into yachts or just people watching, it’s the place to be.

The timeframe

We’ll be leaving on Wednesday 26th September on the afternoon boat to St Malo and will arrive in Monaco on Saturday evening. Some ralliers high tail it back to home and some like to extent their stays. We reserve the return boat for Monday and ralliers are welcome to alter the booking to their requirements.

What to expect

Some random people.
We’ve made a lot of friends over the years and enjoy seeing faces old and new on each rally. The rally unites people who value a roadtrip and adventure. There’s nothing like the memories of flying through the French countryside with other islanders have, literally, a blast. Join the alumni.

Some tricky clues.
Our rally isn’t just about driving, socialising, French food and wine or amazing views. We also have cunning clues to solve each day and the odd random challenge. How many countries of the world can you name in 2 minutes?! How far would your paper aeroplane go?

Some good eating.
Not only do we have dinners with the odd bottle of French wine included each evening but ralliers often find an excuse to find killer lunch spots to grab a steak frites or foie gras terrine, depending how you roll.

Some open road.
If you’re the proud owner of a nice car, whether fast, funny or fabulous then rush hour on the avenue isn’t the place it belongs. Caged in Jersey these beasts go crazy. They need an open road, the fresh French air and miles of asphalt in front of them to experience joy. The rally lets them stretch their legs!

The cluemaster

Untitled-1This year our cluemaster will be the rallier some have come to fear for the clues and tactics introduced in the San Sebastian Rally, his dastardly ways, Porsche driving prowess and intimidating facial hair. He combines the dastardly mind of an English teacher, the competitive spirit of an entrepreneur and the petrol-head prowess that many a rural Frenchman has come to fear.
