|Dear Rally Friends,
The moment we have all been longingly awaiting has arrived, welcome to the 70th edition of the Tulpenrallye! It is our great pleasure to take you through the first ins & outs of this already unforgettable edition.
The 70th edition of the Tulpenrallye will start on Saturday 11 May 2024 in Bilbao in the Basque Country, Spain. After the “Tour Euskara” (practice ride) around Bilbao and the document check, all participants will be welcomed at the Guggenheim Museum for the welcome dinner. From this museum, the rally will start on Sunday 12 May. It will take the participating equipees via a route of over 2,500 kilometres in six days to the finish on Friday 17 May at the beautiful Hotel Le Grand Pavillon in Paris-Chantilly. This venue is ideally suited to a festive finish in Black-Tie.
The 70th edition of the oldest car rally in the Netherlands will therefore largely be held in the country where “the Tulip” has the most rally kilometres: France. This special edition would not be complete without a visit to Magny-Cours. This is home to an old Formula 1 circuit that we will not only drive over, but also dine on. To make the experience even more special, while dinner is going on the Expert class will drive the evening stage.
Registration, for equipees with cars built before 1 January 1974, will open on Sunday, 8 October at 16:00 CEST via www.tulpenrallye.nl.
Let’s look forward to new chapters together during this milestone edition. The Tulpenrallye is not just another event; it is a legacy, a testament to the enduring passion for rallying.
