What is Spain Classic Raid? This is a test of regularity that must elapse between Barcelona and Sevilla, by sections of land and in which they may participate classic vehicles, with more than 25 years for a mandatory course, fulfilling stockings and on paths and roads open to traffic speeds. Thanks to this combination of classic vehicle, regular format, and dirt tracks, is likely to be facing one of the most fun events of the year; without the organizational complexity, and cost, of a gravel rally; and with the advantage of being accessible to wide budgets, but also very tight.

Personally, I have a thorn stuck having tried to organize years participation in events like the Panda Raid, seems like a great opportunity, and in fact I’m already crunching numbers to see how I can I arrange to be in this test Spain inaugural Raid Classic. We talked about an interesting alternative , and many give you confidence, because held in Spain, to tests like Panda Raid, the Maroc Challenge Classics Rallye Atlas, or Santana Trophy. But mostly I think a good complement to these tests . By the dates on which it is celebrated, the Spain Classic Raid may be the perfect opportunity to get those classic garage, these Panda which were or will be in Morocco, to debut in the dramatic landscapes of Spain, including deserts as Monegros (Aragon), Tabernas (Almería) and the Castilian steppe.
