The January Winter Classic Car rally was another Regularity Rally, (TSD Rally  – Time Speed Distance), which allowed oldtimers like ours to enter.Two of our Classic Rental Cars were hired and entered by some local classic car enthusiasts.  Carmen Ferragut was driving the fun Citroen 2CV and Xavier Busquets was behind the wheel of “Scarlett” our red MGB Roadster.  Yves entered in our new addition to the fleet “Sandglow” a 1976 MGB Roadster.  Fifty Cars entered in total and 49 finished.  The line up was very impressive with entrants ranging from a stunning Jaguar XK120 to a very nice Austin Mini.

All drivers were male, apart from Carmen Ferragut, a charming lady who rented the Citroen 2CV.  It was her first time entering a Classic Car Rally in Mallorca and she said it was a great experience, one she would like to repeat again.  She was chuffed to bits when she was awarded a Trophy at the Rally dinner for being the only female finalist.  Come on ladies, the Motoring world wants more women to take part in these events!   Entering the rally in our 2CV would have required a lot of anticipation.  Carmen was not in the quickest of motor vehicles, so she would have had to constantly anticipate the road ahead and manage her driving well.  Constant fun and laughter were her words after.
