RALLYE DES PRINCESSES RICHARD MILLE

A 100% NEW ROUTE!

< RETURN

The 21st edition of the Rallye des Princesses Richard Mille, whose first edition started in September 2000, aims to be innovative with a totally new route to the West of France and the Atlantic!

Leaving from Paris, the competitors will successively join Le Touquet, Deauville, Dinard and La Baule, where they will stay for 2 consecutive days. You will discover the small roads of these beautiful regions that are the Hauts de France, Normandy, Brittany and Pays de la Loire, all steeped in history and each with its coastline. Stopping by the sea 5 steps in a row is quite fun, it’s also a première!

As for the hotels, an important part in the event’s logistics, most are 4**** or 5***** in collaboration with the Barrière Group strongly established in this part of the hexagon. An extra guarantee of quality! Starting from Paris, an itinerary of 300 to 350 km per day will take you from beach to beach: from Le Touquet to Deauville, then Dinard and La Baule.

A test of unparalleled consistency where both piloting and navigation will play a predominant role in an exciting rally.

You will go through four regularity tests for each stage and will enjoy a gourmet break at every lunches.

PARIS – PLACE VENDĂ”ME

Synonymous with this gem of an event, the Place VendĂ´me will once again host the Rallye des Princesses Richard Mille kickoff. This jewel-box of a venue, designed by Jules Hardouin-Mansart at the end of the 17th century, is the ideal stage to showcase these motorsport treasures. Basking in the golden rays of late spring, they will be examined in every detail by our officials and their drivers and co-pilots will be given the final insider tips by our seasoned pro’s.

The competitors will enjoy their last few moments of relaxation and rekindling among friends whilst sipping bubbly and other nectars of the gods thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, Richard Mille, BMW, Vicomte A., Perrier-Jouët Champagne, le groupe Barrière.

Last but not least, an event within the event, they will gather for the opening night cocktail party in the Salle des Coffres at the Pavillon VendĂ´me Potel & Chabot to celebrate in style the 21st year of dazzling thrills.

LEG 1

PARIS – LE TOUQUET

The stopwatch will start ticking for the 21st edition of our annual Princesses’ Rally. The participants will pull away from the glamorous Place VendĂ´me in the order of their assigned numbers heading towards the north of Paris, past the legendary Chantilly Château and then, the teams’ skills will be tested as they drive through the Picardie region on their first two Regularity Zones (RZ) before stopping for lunch in Ailly-sur-Noye.

Two more RZ will make sure the teams are paying attention as they drive through the breathtaking Baie de Somme nature park and the exquisite Marquenterre park.

That night we’ll relax at the charming seaside town of Le Touquet-Paris Plage on the Opal coast to wrap up this first day of intense competition with a distinctly friendly atmosphere. It goes without saying that the Princesses’ north roads will not be paved with bad intentions!

LEG 2

LE TOUQUET – DEAUVILLE

After the opening day’s warm-up session, the second leg will bring the competitors slightly south to the Seine-Maritime region for lunch at the Varengeville castle, cherished by the painter Claude Monet. There’s no denying we’re in Normandy now! As the sun wanes on the horizon, we’ll explore the Boucles de Brotonne nature park and make our way to the seaside town of Deauville, also known as Paris’ 21st district!

Like every other day, this one will be punctuated with 4 RZ that focus on the teams’ navigational skills!

LEG 3

DEAUVILLE – DINARD

Halfway through the adventure, the thrills continue in the Pays d’Auge. As we leave upper Normandy to play in the lower part, a gorgeous RZ will lead our Princesses to what is referred to as the Swiss Normandy for a lunch at Domaine de Laumondière in the darling town of Bagnoles-de-l’Orne.

The motor sport challenges continue in the afternoon with 2 RZ that will bring the group towards a break in front of the Mont Saint-Michel monastery before entering Brittany and the seaside town of Dinard, on the incomparable Emerald coast!

LEG 4

DINARD – LA BAULE

Yet another amazing day is in store for the fourth leg of this year’s event. Both the Princesses’ athletic edge and their tourist tendencies will be delighted as we set out along the exquisite granite coastline of St-Briac-sur-Mer and descend southwesterly into the land of Merlin the Wizard! Next on the menu: lunch at the Domaine de la Châsse, in Iffendic nearby Rennes.

Naturally we must allow our royal ladies a treat, so we’ll let them take a spin on the legendary Lohéac racetrack, which our friend, the owner/founder of the magazines Auto Hebdo and Échappement, Michel Hommell, truly adores.

Then it’s time for 2 more RZ to test our Princesses’ skills before crossing the incomparable Marais de la Grande Brière and the Guérande salt marshes, and the equally impressive sea resort of La Baule!

LEG 5

LA BAULE – LA BAULE

On to the 5th and final leg; clap of end of this remarkable edition by Peter Auto! This incredibly refreshing itinerary will include 3 tough-as-ever RZ to wrap up the athletic aspects of the 21st annual Richard Mille Princesses’ Rally. The last few navigational traps will be set to separate the cream of the crop from the rest of the crew.

The teams that roared their engines as they left Paris five days prior will take a well-deserved break for lunch at Randrécard’s Manor in Tréffléan, located east of Vannes. All bets will have been laid at that point so the remarkable women can all relax and enjoy the ride back to La Baule for the awards ceremony, guided by the scent of pine trees and sea breezes to conclude this all-new edition of the Richard Mille Princesses’ Rally.
