At the moment of publishing this information, we do not yet know how the current pandemic will unfold, but the vaccination has enabled many of us to travel again and live almost as before.
As a responsible organization, we are very concerned about your health and safety in general. For this reason we make it a point of honor to respect all the health measures dictated by the governments of the countries of our participants as well as of the territory of the autonomous community of Andalusia where our rally will take place.
You will be kept regularly informed of the current measures up to the date of your departure and during your stay. If the rally does not take place under the conditions you are entitled to expect, you will be guaranteed a free postponement of your reservation to a later date without cost or loss.
DATES AND PLACE
May 25 to 29, 2022 in Marbella (Malaga, Spain)
PRESENTATION OF THE RALLY
The MARBELLA GRAND PRIX organized from May 25 to 29, 2022 is a motorized tour open to both oldtimers sports vehicles and modern GTs.
This tour is absolutely not a sports event and only makes sense within a recreational context.
Its purpose is to allow automobile enthusiasts and collectors of vintage vehicles to run their vehicles in optimal safety conditions. It also promotes meetings between neophytes and car enthusiasts by discovering the landscape, architectural, cultural and gastronomic heritage of the regions crossed.
The tour is organized so that each participant, regardless of the age and capacity of their vehicle, can complete the route in good safety conditions. It takes place both on an open road, in compliance with the Highway code, with the concern not to disturb the tranquility of local residents, and on closed roads.
The departure of participants is staggered so as not to interfere with road traffic.
DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR
The «Marbella Grand Prix» consists of a navigation tour of approximately 500 km over 3 days after a registration day, mapped out on the public road, in which the participants use a classic road book. We chose the most beautiful scenic routes for this. It is definitely not a speed race. The participants are requested to always observe the traffic regulations and to be extra careful within the built-up area and play areas.
The crew of the vehicles consists of two people, the driver and the co-pilot navigator.
If you wish to bring more than 2 persons in your vehicle, these must be booked as an extra, for insurance, accomodation and catering.

On the strength of its experience in producing sports roadbooks accessible to everyone, the Marbella Grand Prix team will produce for this first Iberian edition, a roadbook entirely in arrow and quantity measurements. The roadbook thus produced will include a lot of direction indications and remarkable elements to allow the course to be completed without a specific distance measuring instrument. The goal is for each crew to be able to travel the route without encountering any difficulties and to enjoy the scenery.
Participants are responsible for their supply of gas or electric power, oil and water. Various points on the roads and in the hotels will be clearly indicated in the documents provided during check-in and in the roadbook.
In the event of an unforeseen obstacle on the route, a detour route will be put in place by the organizer to bring participants back to the correct route. The GPS coordinates of each stage will be communicated.
