Volante Rally 2019
Note; the post below has been translated with Google Translate.
The Volante Rally will be organised for the 10th time in 2019 and that is why we’ve did our best to make it a successful edition again! The Rally is organised every year to underline the sporty Automotive character of our association and to offer you as a member the opportunity to get in touch with fellow graduates again. The Rally is not a speed race, but can be seen as an agility ride.
Participation in the Volante Rally is open to all Volante members. Participation with fun or special vehicles such as old-timer or a classic is preferred, but you can also participate with a daily car. You can bring a guest, preferably a colleague graduate. A team consists of 2 people per vehicle. It is also possible to register if you can not participate with a vehicle, but would like to join someone. We will then try to make a match with another participant who does participate with a vehicle. The total number of participating vehicles is limited to 50 teams.
The Volante Rally will start on Saturday, April 13th at Recreatiepark de Heidebloem in Schaijk. The Rally will take you through beautiful polders and nature reserves, to a finish that we will not reveal yet. From 9.30 am there is a welcome with coffee, tea and cake. Participants receive a road book, rally shield, control cards and a lunch package at the start. There is a briefing before the start. The ride will consist of a number of routes where driving is done on the basis of different card reading systems and skill tests.
Night before the Rally
Members of Volante live throughout the world. The past years showed that it is too far away for some to participate in this one-day event. That is why Volante wants to facilitate in an overnight stay to make it more accessible this 10th edition. There are various possibilities at and around the starting location, the costs are for the account of the participants. This option applies to everyone, even if you live in the neighborhood. The Friday night before the Rally we are welcome at the starting location for a drink. Separate registration is required for the overnight stay. A form follows when there is sufficient interest (see application form!).
After the Rally
After arrival at the finish location, the Rally will be closed with a snack, a drink and the award ceremony. If there is sufficient interest, afterwards you can join for dinner. Separate registration is also necessary for this. Further information will follow when there is sufficient interest.
