Rallye des Princesses is the first 100% female rally in France and Europe exclusively hosted by Richard Mille to celebrate women who love freedom, sport and refinement. The event is can be considered as a more concise version of Tour Auto Optic 2000 that is exclusively put together for female drivers. Rally des Princesses takes its inspiration from the Rallye Paris – Saint Raphael Feminin, a frech rally that was for more than 45-years before and after the world wars. The historic event took female automotive passionates on a 1100 to 2500km grand tour across France. This year was the 18th edition of Rallye des Princesses which started off from the heart of Paris, France at Place Vendome, an area laden with rich historic buildings and French culture.
Rallye des Princesses 2017 takes participants across more than 1,600km over a period of six days as they traverse the beautiful French countryside all the way to the south of France; Paris to Saint Tropez in their charming classic cars. This year’s event, just like other years, saw attendance from car makes such as Triumph, Mercedes-Benz, MG amongst many others, off which the beautiful Porsche 365 Speedster was quite the special highlight. Below are some photos from the event’s flag off at Place Vendome, enjoy!
