Cuba Classic Rally held

For travellers with an interest in Cuba and classic cars, the Cuba Classic Rally is the perfect travel opportunity. The rally gives visitors a chance to see and experience in their own classic car. The rally’s promoters have been granted permission from government authorities to allow visitors to bring their own car, provided it’s left-hand drive.

The Rally covers virtually the entire island, from the hustle and bustle of Havana to the quiet countryside where most travel is done by horse and cart. Participants will take in small towns that are little-changed from the days before the Revolution, including the point where Christopher Columbus landed in 1492. No visit to Cuba is complete without a trip to a cigar plantation and factory where you can discover the time-honoured practice.

Participants will drive La Farola, the best mountain pass in Cuba, to the Bay of Pigs, pass by Guantanamo, visit the memorial to Che Guevara in Santa Clara, as well as the incredible causeways up to 48km in length that join romantic islands to the mainland.

All accommodation will be the best possible and drivers will have rest days at regular intervals so that they can enjoy the culture and lifestyle of the Cuban people. Navigation will be handled the old-fashioned way—with a combination of roadbook, maps and apps to ensure that drivers don’t get lost. All driving will be done during daylight hours.

The Rally’s organizers are prepared to help drivers arrange the transport of their cars and will help make arrangements for visas. They also have a professional mechanic and medic at the ready during the Rally.

Drivers in the Rally will be a part of an adventure, starting and finishing in Havana. By travelling the length and breadth of the island, drivers will see sights and experience local life in a way no other visitors can. They will explore the interior, the towns, the history and byways, visit colourful towns, tobacco plantations, waterfalls and lush turquoise beaches. Along the way, they will also have the opportunity to experience the incredible music and vibrant nightlife of the island.
