67th SNOW & ICE RALLY: Promising reconnaissance rounds!               

 

Preparations for the 67th Snow & Ice Rally are well underway and clipping along. The reconnaissance rounds were completed just before lockdown and lead us to believe that the 2022 edition will be absolutely exceptional. Join us in the Doubs & Jura region of France from February 13 to 16. The starting line-up will gather at the fascinating Peugeot Adventure Museum in Sochaux. And it won’t be complete without you!

When we wrapped up last year’s edition, in Malbuisson, at the end of an exhilarating 66th edition, no one could have imagined what 2020 had in store for everyone. Nine months later, France and all of Europe has been struck by a second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re all hoping the latest lockdown and imminent vaccine will deliver the outcomes so desperately needed.

Despite the challenging times, ZANIROLI CLASSIC EVENTS put all our best efforts into making sure the events scheduled for 2021 will take place under optimal conditions. The first of which is of course the 67th SNOW & ICE RALLY, slated for February 14 to 17 in the Doubs & Jura.

Our recent reconnaissance work promises a breathtaking edition in 2021. The quintessential winter road rally will commence at the illustrious Peugeot Adventure Museum in Sochaux. The first of three nights and three days during which our brave teams will slip and slide their way along the Franco-Swiss border. All of which will be plotted out across 1,000 kilometers of open roads and will include 40 Regularity Zones (RZ) speckled with 400 time checks along the way!

After the French teams’ recent rise in performance, the Belgians (who traditionally dominated this discipline) are making a comeback! Among the 60 teams already enrolled, and who took advantage of the early bird rates, many are from the north, which means we’re in for a tight race to the podium throughout this 67th edition of the classic winter rally.

A word from Patrick Zaniroli: Good sport, good friends, absolute authenticity …

Successfully held every year since 2009 in the Upper Doubs & Jura region, it’s with total confidence that we invite you to join us once again this winter for the Snow & Ice Rally. Often referred to as Little Siberia, France’s coldest region is the ideal venue for this arctic automotive adventure. Often cloaked in a blanket of snow, the roads around Malbuisson await the many competitors from all across Europe who to experience one of the most thrilling and highly regarded winter regularity rallies.

With their little forest roads, rarely used and often snow-covered, the wild landscapes and white deserts nestled deep within the French mountains make the Upper Doubs and Jura regions the ideal playground for those who love snow & ice and winter motor sports.

The teams will loop their way through the most breathtaking winter wonderland, as majestic as Finland this time of year! Averaging 300 kilometers per day, the teams will tackle about six regularity tests a day and enjoy lovely lunch break at one of the region’s many charming inns.

The Snow & Ice Rally invites you to enjoy more than 1,000 kilometers of pure pleasure, winding your way through country roads that are usually closed at this time of year but are specially opened for our rally, thanks to the kind cooperation of the towns through which we’ll be driving.
