Towards the Big Blue Sea
The women-only Rallye des Princesses Richard Mille will see its first 100% Peter Auto-run edition this year on 3-8 June and comprise a 1,500km route chosen to test the crews while showing them areas of exceptional natural and cultural beauty and significance. This year’s itinerary will start as tradition dictates at the chic Place de Vendôme in Paris and end, as always on the French Riviera, but the route in between will be original, with stops in Beaune, the capital of Burgundy; the ski report of Megève, l’Alpe d’Huez and les Baux de Provence situated on its rocky outcrop in the heart of the lavender fields of Provence, before the finish in Nice. The regularity tests will be challenging, while the cultural life will take competitors to castles for lunches, dinners in exceptional places, such as the Hospices de Beaune and the Carrières des Lumières in Les Baux de Provence and top- of-the-range accommodation including five-star hotels such as Les Fermes de Marie in Megève or Baumanière in Les Baux de Provence.
