From 20th to 22nd of March, Petrolicious in partnership with Reservoir Watch will inaugurate its first Petrolicious classic rally in France “Drive Tastefully: A Tribute to Le Mans”.
Petrolicious was created in 2012 in Los Angeles. It has established itself as the worldwide online media reference, dedicated to the automotive lifestyle art. Followed by 900K people on Facebook and 679K on Instagram, Petrolicious founded in 2019 a “members club”, wishing to bring its community together through various events around the world.
A CLASSIC RALLY LOADED WITH HISTORY FOR A CIRCUIT OF LEGEND
Petrolicious wants to pay tribute to Le Mans through a rally starting from Crubilé Sport, a well-known dispensary who prepare the most legendary racing Porsches. After a journey through the Perche which will highlight the region architectural heritage, the rally will mark a break from the 24-hour circuit for a personalized visit of the museum and the control tower. Finally, participants will be invited to stay at the Hôtel de France, known for hosting the greatest drivers and teams that have raced at Le Mans.
The next day, the 20 teams from 8 different countries will reach the Allier passing by the sublime Haute Vienne and Loir et Cher landscapes, marking a stop at the château d’Ainay le Vieil. The last day, before having lunch in one of the most beautiful Vallée de la Loire castles, the teams will visit the Romorantin’s Matra museum, which houses cars that raced in Le Mans.
