PROGRAM - THREE DAYS OF DRIVING AND VIEWING PLEASURE
The program of the RALLYE DE DURBUY® has ‘oldtimer enthusiasm’ written all over it. This first edition promises to bring you three days of sheer driving pleasure.
THURSDAY, APRIL 30TH - DAY 1
The RALLYE DE DURBUY® starts on Thursday, April 30th. All contenders gather that day in Durbuy’s city centre. After handling all administrative formalities, it’s time for a thorough technical scrutineering by an international team of experts. This way the authenticity of the oldtimers and safety of the participants is preserved. This technical check takes place from 13h to 17h.
Between 13h and 18h, you’re invited to the prologue that will determine the starting grid of Friday’s rally. Later on between 17h and 19h, you’re kindly invited to come toast to the start of the RALLYE DE DURBUY® in hotel Le Sanglier des Ardennes. Brace yourselves for a full-on haute cuisine happening: star chef Wout Bru makes sure you’re well looked after in his new Grill, and the already renowned Bru’sserie on Thursday and Friday evening.
FRIDAY, MAY 1ST - DAY 2
The official start of the RALLYE DE DURBUY®! The first car gets a green light at 8h30. This Friday event takes all participants along a challenging and extraordinary parcours through the Ardennes mountains and hillsides. And oh yeah, lunch is served at a very special location!
All contenders are invited in the Durbuy city centre between 16h and 19h for some well-deserved, revitalizing drinks before dinner starts at 20h. Bon appétit!
SATURDAY, MAY 2ND - DAY 3
The victor of the first day is again expected at the start at 8h30 for a day packed with action, adventure and authentic driving pleasure. A new day of various challenges as well, and again a most surprising lunch.
The grand finale and conclusion of this car enthusiast’s high mass takes place around 16h30 in Durbuy’s city centre.
Between 16h30 and 19h, all pilots and co-pilots are warmly invited to the apéritif. In good company of sponsors and partners, they can enjoy a glass of bubbles, share stories and experiences and look back on this great rally adventure.
The culinary pinnacle of the weekend starts at 19h30: a glamorous gala night in the all new top hotel Le Sanglier des Ardennes. The menu? A delicious dinner by Wout Bru with exquisite creations and exclusive wines.
It promises to be a long, long Saturday night in Durbuy...
SUNDAY, MAY 3RD - DAY 4
The tastiest way to close this special weekend in style? That must be our farewell brunch. A last chance to look back with like-minded petrolheads and forge plans for next year’s edition. And then finally hit the road again, seeing wonderful Durbuy slowly disappear in the rear view mirror...
