September 26th - September 28th

1936 Ford CabrioletThe Alpine Trial has quickly become established as the must do Vintage-only event for those seeking out the finest in Alpine motoring.

The first day took place in the Jura Mountains, which rise immediately behind the beautiful art-deco Rally HQ of the Domaine de Divonne hotel. While not as high or dramatic as their Alpine counterparts further south, the fast sweeping roads of the High Jura are made for vintage motoring, and they provide a perfect introduction to the challenges of this three day event.

On Day Two the cars headed south from Divonne, following the spine of the mountains towards the Rhone valley. Once across the Rhone, the mountains grow steadily higher until, after lunch, the dramatic limestone crags of the Chartreuse Massif hove into view, a new area for the "Alpine". After cresting the famous Col du Granier, the route descended briefly into the Isere valley before turning north for the final run into Annecy.

The final day provided the stiffest challenge of all, using virtually every remote Alpine road in a compact route that is rarely out of sight of Mont Blanc. A few new mountain passes were thrown in for good measure before the event returned to Annecy, for the Gala Prize Giving.

Nearly 1000 kilometres of the finest vintage motoring... what better way to spend three days in the Alps!

Jeff Urbina and Willie McNickle drove the 1936 Ford Cabriolet and Tim Eades and Jack Baldwin drove the 1938 Chevy Coupe.

June 12th - July 17th, 2016

The most extraordinary journey possible in a motorcar...

The 2016 Peking to Paris Motor Challenge started at the Great Wall outside Beijing. The adventurous route wound through Mongolia, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, and Switzerland before finishing in Paris, France.

Our drivers; Jeff Urbina, Chris Pike, Tim Eades, and Willie McNickle, competed with over 100 cars, driving over 8,510 miles in 36 days. To qualify for this event, cars must "reasonably stand a chance of coping" with the challenges they will face. Each participant brought their own camping gear and spare parts, including extra wheels.

It was a race without compromises, with very long and strenuous sections. It was a real adventure and a big challenge.




Flying Scotsman Finish

The 8th Flying Scotsman Rally - Belvoir Castle to Gleneagles


Friday 15th - Sunday 17th, April, 2016

On Friday April 15th, 2016, Jeff Urbina and Chris Pike were "All aboard" departing Belvoir Castle, an idyllic East Midlands location set in 16,000 acres of beautiful parkland. They had three days of glorious Vintage motoring through the Lincolnshire and Yorkshire Wolds then onwards to the North and beyond via Northumberland and some of Scotland's finest Lochs and Glens before arriving, bang on time, in front of the splendid Gleneagles hotel.


The Sahara Challenge 2015


Sahara CHallengeMadrid to Marrakesh - October 5th -14th, 2015

Jeff Urbina and Tim Eades drove the 1938 Chevrolet Fangio Coupe in The Sahara Challenge, placing 2nd overall for their class (Vintageant - pre 1941 type cars). The ten-day event from Toledo to Marrakesh proved to be great preparation for the Peking to Paris 2016, but more than that, it was a fantastic rally experience in its own right.
