Global travel restrictions have inevitably inflicted changes on Bespoke Rallies’ ongoing calendar of international classic car events. However, encouraged by a pent-up demand for some automotive adventure and a degree of easing in many parts of the world, the company has now amended its schedule of upcoming rallies, starting with The Highland 1000. This four-day, 1000km competitive drive though the best scenery Scotland has to offer will, COVID-19 permitting, run from September 23 to 27 this year.
The Cuba Classic Rally remains on schedule to start on January 18, 2021, while The Imperial Rally that should have taken place this month has been rearranged for June 2 to July 1 next year. There are now a few places available on this previously sold-out 20-car event that commences in Oslo. It includes a week-long Hurtigruten cruise along the Norwegian fjords, followed by a run through north Russia to St. Petersburg. The 30-day rally continues through the Baltic States to Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia before terminating in Italy. The Tiger Tasmania rally of Australia has been moved to November 3-28, 2021 and the London Dakar Enduro to February 28 to March 28, 2022. The full calendar through to the end of 2021 now looks as follows:
Highland 1000: September 23-27
Cuba Classic Rally: January 18 – February 4
Pyrenees 1000: May 6-9
Imperial Rally: June 2 – July 1
White Nights: August 13-29
Great Amazon Adventure: September 23 – October 17
Tiger Tasmania: November 3-28
