Aston Martin thought of a way to celebrate their 100th anniversary and What better way to celebrate than taking the cars on a Rally?
100 Aston Martins worked their way through some of the most stunning landscapes of Europe. On the five day trip Aston Martin crossed seven countries. Starting in Italy at Lake Como, then challenging the majestic Swiss alps, via St. Moritz. From St Moritz it continued through the Swiss Alps to Lake Constance and Germany.
Refreshing at a medieval Fortress close to Stuttgart before challenging the winding roads of the Black Forest. Following the Mosel river on their way to the Aston Martin Nürburgring Test Centre, where all models passed endurance testing and significant development stages. From the Nurburgring it continued through the Belgian Ardennes region, famous for Spa, the cradle of European motorsport.
Last stop on the continent was Château de Cocove. The Eurotunnel took all Aston Martins on the rally to the UK and finally to London. There the 100 Aston Martins on the rally gather with 1000 Aston Martin from all over the world today. Lining up the cars in Kensington Gardens next to the palace, it is the highlight of the five day rally across Europe! Celebrating in Aston Martin style in Freemason’s Hall last night, the participants join an all British “Picnic in the Park” today.
