The tour is based on ferry crossings to Bilbao or Santander and will travel the regions to the south and east of Bilbao up to the foothills of the Pyrenees.
Distances will be modest at around a basic 450 miles from port to port making the tour suitable for cars of more modest performance; however optional routes taking in some mountain driving and places of notable interest will also be available for the more energetic.
The tour will extend over seven nights in Spain (plus nights on the ferry) and accommodation will be in Paradors with one night at the first stop and two nights each at the other three destinations.
The arrangements include five nights half board and two nights bed and breakfast (one hotel does not have a restaurant) in Paradors of historic interest. Parking is generally available at the hotels but some at additional cost.
The tour is planned to take place around the beginning of June 2024, although the exact starting date remains to be confirmed. Bookings for the package will be made by entrants directly with Brittany Ferries who are making the arrangements on our behalf and who are ABTA bonded.
One stop will be just outside St Sebastian where a free day will be available to investigate the route and acknowledge the centenary of the 1924 Spanish Grand Prix win by Segrave’s supercharged Sunbeam. Other excursions and route plans are being developed.
Bookings are currently provisional and the cost is yet to be finally confirmed. Spaces are limited and bookings will need to be confirmed shortly after the final details become available.
I am therefore inviting expressions of interest in this tour; if interested, please contact James Mumford copied to Martin Bryant as soon as possible; it is important emails are sent to both addresses as James Mumford will be away until 17 October.
Those expressing interest will be provided with more detailed information as soon as it is available. Please contact the above if you require any further information.
