The 3rd Alpine Trial – September 2016
If you enjoy driving your vintage car over glorious roads in spectacular surroundings with the company of like-minded enthusiasts the Alpine Trial is the perfect opportunity. In 2015 there were nine different makes of cars in the top ten places and the winning driver was only on his third event. The huge Rolls Royce Phantom II of Beat and Elisabeth Hirs achieved a spectacular ninth place on their very first rally. It really is not necessary to be a seasoned rally expert to find immense pleasure and satisfaction from driving the Alpine Trial.
After two years based entirely in Annecy the Alpine Trial explores new territory in 2016, starting in the unspoilt and little known French spa town of Divonne-les-Bains, sandwiched between the Jura Mountains and Lake Geneva, just 15 minutes from Geneva airport and other extensive transport links. The nights of the second and third days will be based, as in previous years, at the Imperial Hotel beside Lac d’Annecy.
Nearly 900 kilometres of the finest vintage motoring… what better way to spend three days in the Alps!
