As many as 100 vintage autos will roll through the Yucatan Peninsula during the third edition of the Rally Maya, set for May 16-21. The five-stage rally begins in Merida on May 16 and concludes in Playa del Carmen on May 21.
The Rally Maya, one of the most important national and international vintage races, is recognized by the FIVA “Federation Internationale des Vehicules anciens” (International Federation of old Vehicles) as a world-class event.
The rally is for classic cars older than 40 years in 4 age categories covering 1915 to 1975 and 5 stages throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. The event will cover 1,200 kilometers (745 miles)
Combining lifestyle, sports, culture, history and tradition, the race becomes a rolling museum, supported by the organizers of the world-famous “La Carrera Panamericana” or the Pan Am Race.
The rally’s attractions include five days of competition throughout the Yucatán Peninsula, visiting beautiful haciendas, magical towns and Mayan archaeological sites, immersing the participants in the culture of the region.
Rally Maya Mexico is not a speed race, but a Regularity Rally, which measures Time, Speed and Distance.
Every car is required to maintain an average speed based on their model. The average speed cannot be exceeded; participants can go faster or slower through the various stages, but overall the speed must be as close as possible to the average. Consistency will be rewarded.
The rally raises funds to support medical treatment for children with Type 1 Diabetes in Southeast Mexico, in alliance with the Federacion Mexicana de Diabetes A.C. (Mexican Association of Diabetes).
If you own a classic automobile there is still time to enroll in this unique competition. More info at:http://www.rallymayamexico.com/.
