This week I accepted an opportunity to be the navigator for Michael Eatough in next year’s Paris to Prague Rally. This rally will run from June 11 to June 17, 2017. The route of this rally should be very interesting.
The Paris-Prague Rally will start at the magnificent Chateau de Chantilly with overnight stops in Nancy, St Gallen, Cortina D’Ampezzo, Linz and Brno before finishing in Prague. The Paris-Prague Rally is about 2,250 kilometres long and travels through six countries in six days – France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic. The route will include the former grand prix circuit at Reims, the Freiburg-Schauinsland Hillclimb, the world-famous Stelvio Pass, the Grossglockner High Alpine Road and the old Masaryk road circuit at Brno.

Michael Eatough and I have been discussing cars and rally issues for some time. We met in person last year during the 2015 Trans-American Challenge when the rally had an overnight stop in Old Forge. New York.
Michael’s Mercedes-Benz is very sturdy and well prepared. I have no doubt that the car will make it from start to finish on this rally.

I look forward to taking part in this rally with Michael. He has put a lot of effort into his rallying and in preparing his car. And having the opportunity do go up the Stelvio Pass while on a rally will be a real treat.
