The ultimate women’s motor sport get-away since 2000
Rated France’s and even Europe’s #1 100% women’s motor sport event, the RICHARD MILLE PRINCESSES’ RALLY is the must-do adventure for all free-spirited women who love both sophisticated luxury and friendly competition. Inspired by the legendary Paris-Saint Raphaël Women’s Race, updated for today’s clientele by Viviane Zaniroli and the whole ZCE team, year after year – and soon to be celebrating the big 20, this classic automobile event dedicated to beauty continues to garner increasing applauds.
Ahead of the curve in terms of women’s motorsports, this race has been combating stereotypes about women drivers for twenty years. Today, it enjoys a stellar reputation among participants ands partners, as witness the continued support of the watchmaking brand Richard Mille. Over the years, the rally has unceasingly reshaped and emancipated itself to become what it is today: an event at once sporting, convivial and… Participants at long last, no longer relegated to spectatorship, these drivers enjoy getting together each spring for their ‘ladies’ week’ of adventure.
From the start, our organisation has sought to maintain a balance between days of sporting excitement and agreeable evening pauses. We place a particular premium on comfort, as the performance involved in driving a vintage car for 350 kilometres per day on country roads is one that ought to be paired with a well-earned rest. The capacity of these women to express daring and fighting spirit alongside their joie de vivre commands both respect and admiration. My goal, and that of my team, is precisely to showcase all their many qualities.
Five magical days of driving across more than 1,600 kilometers, split into five totally unique legs, along the most delightful French country roads from Paris to the South since 20 years - After Biarritz in 2018, it is the turn of La Baule destination in 2020! We have a lot scoured the small roads of the diagonal North-South and wish a little change starting for the first time to the West of France - The competitors will often see the sea between Le Touquet, Deauville, Dinard and La Baule: what are you waiting for to sign up! The Richard Mille Princesses’ Rally has become a absolute ‘must’ for women to escape the daily grind, once a year, with friends and/or family, in a rare and precious context. Without a GPS nor a map, relying only on the road book to guide them from point A to point B, in keeping with strict clockwork and mileage tracking, the teams are judged on their ability to maintain the set average speed (between 40km and 50 km/h, depending on the car’s age) and their ability to navigate with accuracy and at the right pace, along the most beautiful roads in France.
The sporting aspects fill your days, from one Regularity Zone (RZ) to the next, with a heavenly luncheon to refuel on every level. The papmpering aspects fill your nights, in elegant hotels where you’re treated like a real Princess from the moment you pull into the secure car park each evening. Careful ladies, don’t tarry, the Richard Mille Princesses’ Rally is often sold out before you know it!
At the end of the race, no participant is exactly as she was, nor entirely different, but all are princesses forever!
Date : From 14th to 19th May 2022
Program : 5 days (+1 more checks day Saturday May 14th, 2022)
