Classic car rally XVI

Puerto Portals

One of the most popular and prestigious sporting events to be held in Mallorca, ranking alongside the King's Cup sailing regatta and Mallorca Open tennis tournament, the Classic Car Rally will take place on the 12th to 14th March based at swish Puerto Portals, the luxury yacht harbour near Palma.

Already there are dozens of entrants to the four categories; regularity, race, youngtimers and modern classics. Drivers come from all over Europe, many year on year because the rally is so well regarded, bringing with them famous marques like MG, Austin Healey, Jaguar, Triumph, Chevrolet, Porsche, Mini, Mercedes, and Caterham to name just some!

As I said, they're all based in the super duper yacht port of Puerto Portals – with an ample selection of high end shops, bars and restaurants – where you can see the gleaming chrome and polished bodywork of the cars parked up on one side of the jetty and millions of Euro's worth of marine real estate moored on the other side.

If you'd like to get an up close look at these classics of the road then you can see them parked up at Puerto Portals or you can see them in action on some of Mallorca's most challenging roads like, for example, the twisty-turny, hairpin-bendy road down to Sa Calobra.

The organisers have provided the information about when each road along each day's route will be closed, so click on this link, to get a good idea when the cars will be flying by.
