After a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 64th edition of the Barcelona-Sitges International Vintage Car Rally is getting into gear. The international event will be held on Saturday 19 March and Sunday 20 March, with a special focus on historic sports vehicles.
Some of the cars can be seen on display until Saturday at the Illa Diagonal shopping centre in Barcelona, such as a 1913 Panhard-Levassor X19, a 1926 Ford Model T and two Rolls-Royce Phantom I – a 1926 Mayfair and a Saint Andrew from 1927. On Saturday, in the Avinguda Diagonal in Barcelona, the members of the jury will evaluate the state of conservation of the vehicles and the restoration work that has been carried out.
On the same Saturday, a meeting of classic vehicles will take place in Sitges, where the Porsche specialist centre, Julià 911, will convene around 20 versions of the legendary German sports car. At 2pm, the cars will be on display at La Fragata, after the vehicles have been driven around the key areas of the town.
The main event will be on Sunday with the rally from Barcelona ending at La Fragata in Sitges, where the vehicles will then remain on display until 5.30pm.
This year’s poster pays tribute to Amilcar, the former car manufacturer with innovative sports technology, which was active between 1921 and 1939. The manufacturer’s work led to the creation of more powerful and heavier cars, such as the Amilcar Cyclecar Sport.
