The first “Ladies” Rally of the Porsche Clubs of France is born from June 26 to 29, 2019
Female driving is developing and taking shape within the Porsche Clubs. The Federation of Porsche Clubs of France brings together 29 Official Porsche Clubs and 5370 members passionate about the Porsche brand. Women are involved in it at all levels.
The President of the FFPC, Claude Varon is satisfied with the evolution of his federation. “With all the clubs, we organize over 400 events each year. This is a high figure and yet, on each of the major events organized, the participation is significant and mixed; on the more “competitive” sessions, female crews are often awarded prizes.
Our federation and the clubs that constitute it are increasingly committed to promoting the Ladies' activity; to this end, we are strengthening and increasing training in sport driving and access to driving sessions. The rise of female driving within Porsche clubs is such that a group has even been created and identified by a logo, they are the French Ladies… This is why it seemed natural to us to organize an event 100% feminine ! The project saw the light of day this year and was “full box” as soon as registration opened. It will be the 1st Ladies' Rally of the Porsche Clubs of France ”.
The rally: concept & route
The objective is to live between women - without the “competition” men / women - a pleasant moment of sharing in a Porsche environment specific to the FFPC. This is a tourist rally which also includes regularity tests, organized on roads open to traffic, as well as a driving session on the circuit. A classification will be made by a Jury to reward the most efficient crews.
This rally is reserved for 30 100% female teams, made up of women members of an Official Porsche Club and driving on Porsche coupes and convertibles (excluding Panamera, Cayenne, Macan). The route is about 1200 kms, to be completed in 4 days starting on June 27 from the Porsche Center in Roissy, directed by Maud Gallice. After a stage in Burgundy, where a driving session on the circuit will take place, the crews will head south-east on June 28, to arrive in Savoie, on the heights. On Saturday June 29, it will be time to assault the Grands Cols des Alpes and cross them, to reach the Alpes-de-HauteProvence. The engines are cut off near the beaches of the Mediterranean.
The 30 crews in the running are from Clubs: 914/928 / Atlantic / Burgundy Franche Comté / Brittany Pays de Loire / Center / Champagne Ardennes / Mediterranean / Nord-Picardie / Paris / Pays de Savoie / Portes de Provence / Roussillon / RS de France / Spyder Speedster de France / Tourcoing.
