This Savoyard city will be the place where we host our magnificent prize-giving dinner and with a week’s sport to talk through you can expect a long evening at the bar in front of you. Recalling tales of derring-do and “wrong slots” the party goes on as long as you can!
Join us for what promises to be the most exciting and challenging classic rally of 2016.
