Classic Car Spring Rally Gears Up for Spetses in April

Poseidonion_rally_Photo 3Vintage car drivers are gearing up for this year’s Spring Rally, to take place on the Saronic isle of Spetses on April 4-5.

Poseidonion_rally_Photo 4Jointly organized by the Greek Federation of Friends of the Old Car and Motorcycle (Philpa) and Spetses’ Poseidonion Grande Hotel, the spring rally features antique cars and motorcycles dating back as far as 1921, which will “tour” the car-free island on April 5.

The race will kick off on April 4, from Corinth, and will travel 150km via special routes through Greek mainland towns and villages to reach Spetses, where they will take their place in front of the majestic Poseidonion Grande Hotel.

Wishing to draw attention to the uniqueness of Spetses as a car-free island, the Poseidonion Grande Hotel welcomes the automobiles that have made history, evoking the atmosphere and elegance of a bygone era.

Organisers wish in this way to highlight the aesthetics and beauty as well as artistry and care needed to maintain these beautiful vehicles through time.

Under the motto: “Inspiring People to Care About Old Cars”, Philpa is a non-profit club established in 1969.
