The 1st BCC (British Chamber of Commerce Czech Republic) Car Rally, a business event, will be organised and conducted in full accordance with the Czech government’s pandemic measures valid as of 28 May 2021.
You can be sure to have an overall great and fun experience, including extensive business networking at the same time. We are planning for the participation of up to 50 vehicles, to include British cars and motorbikes from all eras up to 2021 as well as any other marques and models pre-1995, even German and French ones.
We reserve the right to assess the suitability of all vehicles participating, so we recommend that you submit your applications as soon as possible.
KEY DETAILS – WHAT TO EXPECT
Concept: A two-day rally showcasing British cars and motorbikes of all eras up until 2021 and any other marques and models pre-1995. Point-to-Point Run with three interesting waypoints, at each of which the driver will need to take a picture of the car in front of a particular landmark. Two of the waypoints have café/refreshment possibilities. It is not a race – there are no prizes for completing it in the shortest time, nor is there a requirement to follow a particular route. We will provide an advisory/recommended route through pretty countryside which avoids main roads and towns.

Number of crews: up to 50
Total length of qualifying Point to Point route (28 May): approx. 100 km
