Spanning five days, it is a dream rally with the majority of the time spent racing and driving on the most beautiful French country roads, some track sessions, and all of this, for only 250 eligible cars.

This Forgotten Classic-Filled Track Sits in the Middle of Budapest

Imagine being in the middle of a European capital city of two million. You see gates with flaking paint, and enter through them. Suddenly you find yourself in a bustling playground of classic vehicles. You've entered a miniature, magical world like a snow globe, but instead of wooden lodges, reindeer, and pine trees, this "snow globe” has been designed for classic life enthusiasts.
