Belgrade. Transylvanian Alps. Transfagarasan Pass. Budapest. Innsbruck. The challenge of the Euro Enduro! Sat 14 - Sat 21 July, 2012
The Euro Enduro is a 3,500 mile driving event that follows a different route each year – for 2012 we are travelling through 8 countries in 8 days as well as taking in the Transylvanian Alps & Transfagarasan Pass in Romania. A rest day with no driving is included - this will be at Budapest. It is open to all makes, types and age of car.
IT IS NOT A RACE, RALLY OR TIME TRIAL. There are no time constraints or destination arrival deadlines. It is intended primarily to be a fun, social driving experience where like minded petrolheads can get away from it all by driving, dining and telling each other far fetched stories about their cars, their daily exploits and past adventures and encounters. And a casual dress code!
Note couples are welcome and typically make up 30% of all attendees on this event.
£2,900 per car (£1,450 per person) based on 2 drivers sharing accommodation (£2,800 for CD Tour returnees).
