In 2018 the 25th anniversary of the birth of the Team Etcétera and, after four successful editions of the Spain Classic Raid, We have believed that it is time to celebrate it as we know best, with the organization of a new test, the Spain Classic Rally. Again, it is a novel test of dimensions not known so far in Spain and we believe that not even in Europe, the cradle of motor sport. This is a regularity rally for classic cars lasting 8 days. The philosophy is the same as in Spain Classic Raid: cross Spain with a classic vehicle, but this time on asphalt.
The test is scheduled to leave Santander and end in Madrid. Between these two capitals it will visit Oviedo, Ponferrada, the provinces of Salamanca, Cáceres, Córdoba, Jaén, Murcia, Alicante, Valencia, Cuenca and Guadalajara.
Eight days to travel Spain at an average of 450 km / day, with more than 3.500 km of rally in total. With this route Spain Classic Rally will be the longest regularity test for classics in Europe and probably the most beautiful, visiting the Cantabrian and Mediterranean seas, the Gata, Cazorla, Cuenca, Sierra Morena, the Picos de Europa and a good number of national heritage and world heritage sites.
