Already one of the world’s leading organisers of international classic car rallies, Bespoke Rallies has now considerably expanded its portfolio by the acquisition of its established Australian counterpart, Classic Driving Tours.
Explained Bespoke Rallies founder John Brigden: “This is an exciting step for us. We have known John and Colleen Davis of Classic Driving Tours for some years, and they joined us on our recent 8,000km Imperial Rally that took in no less than 10 countries. It transpired that John and Colleen wished to retire, and it made perfect sense all round for us to add their business to ours. We will, however, continue to market the events separately, as their non-competitive tours are conducted in self-drive hire vehicles and our rallies are aimed at those wishing to stretch the legs of their own classic cars.
“Our first event under the Classic Driving Tours banner will be the ‘Africa Tour’ (March 17- April 1, 2023), which will be followed by ‘Route ‘66’, ‘Pebble Beach’, ‘Southern Flavours’ (a tour of America’s deep south), and the ‘Goodwood Revival Tour’ (a southern UK drive that will serve as the perfect prelude to what is generally regarded as the best historic race meeting in the world).”
Further details of the Classic Driving Tours events will be announced in due course, while those included in the existing Bespoke Rallies schedule for the rest of this year and next can be found at www.bespokerallies.com. In addition, those visiting the Goodwood Revival will find Bespoke Rallies at Stand No.293 and Classic Driving Tours at No.292.
