Oris Classic Car Rally 2014
Think sleek, fast cars and immediately glamorous locations, beautiful girls, great bodywork and champagne lifestyles come to mind. We'll get a chance to sample all of these next month when the Oris Classic Car Rally returns to Mallorca for the tenth time and takes over Palma's cachet laden sport port Puerto Portals.
Full of gleaming yachts, top restaurants and upmarket shops, Puerto Portals is the ideal location to show of some of the finest examples of motoring style, design and engineering as around 100 fabulous cars dating back to the 50's come to town.
They'll be based around the port on the 13th, 14th, and 15th of March while they compete on the island's roads for the top prizes in two categories, regular and speed. Amongst the entrants this year are some of the world's greatest motoring marques; Porsche, Lancia, Jaguar and Ferrari from the 'old' world and Mitsubishi from the new.
The actual times and routes that the rally will adhere to this year have not yet been released but if you are interested in seeing these gleaming machines burning rubber round the island or parked up in Puerto Portals, keep checking the official website for more details.
Oh, and I almost forgot the bit about the beautiful women! Guest of honour at the rally is Goya award winning Spanish actress Adriana Ugarte who's obviously excited about being here as she tweeted this Instagram photo of the official rally launch the other day!
