The Participants:

Splügenpass The Tour Grande is designed as a long-distance competition.
It will appeal to up market clientele with valuable, exclusive vintage, classic and sports cars constructed until 1977 but also modern sport cars are welcome.

The Idea:

The Tour Grande considers the precise wishes and needs of its clientele:
No special vehicle equipment required = no modifications to the vehicle
No "average speed checks" = no stress for the co-driver
Exciting and varied regularity tests = not just for professionals
Speeding is possible, but not the goal = everyone decides their own speed
Accommodation in manor houses, castles and grand hotels = just like vacation
The route leads through some of the most scenic areas of Europe = this is holiday!

The Tour:

The Tour Grande 2017 performs about 1.300 miles from Pisa on a selection of the most scenic routes of Italy, Slovenia and Austria returning to Vienna.

The accommodation in manor houses, castles and grand hotels combined with the limited number of participants, guarantees exclusivity.

It is always a priority that the participants have fun and enjoy it. To determine a winning team, there are a number of innovative and entertaining regularity tests. These are exciting timing tests with visible measuring points which have to be passed as closely as possible in a dedicated time - mostly the driver can choose this time by himself in advance. It's never about who's the fastest!
