Jaime Novelo Montalvo, organizer of this event, declared that ” This competition consists on regularity, not on speed, on board of wonderful classic cars over 43 years old, in four categories ranging from 1915-1973″.

Competitors will be immersed in a magical tour through history, culture, geography, art, gastronomy, archeology and a rolling museum, traveling through Quintana Roo and Yucatan.

The Mayor of Valladolid, Roger Alcocer Garcia recalled that the six-day event was created by the record champion ‘A’ 2012 and Pan American Race winner, Benjamin de la Peña Mora.

The tour will begin in Cancun, then it will continue to the archaeological sites of Tulum and Coba, and then heading for Valladolid, Yucatan. The next stage will be Tihosuco, Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Ek Balam, Izamal and the race will end with a caravan on Paseo de Montejo, the main avenue in Mérida, capital city of the state of Yucatan.

The rally will be watched globally, as it will be broadcasted by History Channel, Discovery and CNN. This event will be a fundraiser for the Children with Diabetes of the Yucatan Peninsula.
