Under the patronage of the Prime Minister and with the support of TBC, the largest bank of the country, we will be having the first all pre-war rally in Georgia.

Georgia is an ancient country; its civilization goes back to the Persian en Greek empires. Its western name was given by the Crusaders after St George, in Georgia they call their country “Sakartvelo”.

Ancient Greek legends tell of a fabulously wealthy land where Jason and the Argonauts stole the Golden Fleece. It was a distant land that was reached by the Black Sea and down the River Phasis. Nowadays we refer to it as Georgia.

A journey into humanity and kindness. A gem between Europe and Asia and a place you will not regret visiting. This is what people who have visited Georgia tell, it leaves a massive impact on any traveller.

Georgia is a beautiful country shaped by rugged mountains, rivers, valleys and meadows. This amazing country lies in the middle of Caucasus region and has unspoiled natural beauty to complement its unique culture.

The highest peak of Europe can be found here, the Mount Elbrus which rises to a height of 5,642 metres. To sum it up there are more than seven five-thousanders in the greater Caucasian Mountain range.

It is not only the landscape, which will grasp you. It is the combination with the unique culture, the cuisine and the warmth of tis people.

The Peaks of the Caucasus is not an endurance rally. We will be covering an average of 200 km a day. The emphasis is on discovering the country and its people. As such the rally component is there just to add to the atmosphere, it is not a goal by itself. There are 30 entry spots for pre-war cars. Support is provided by Altena Classic & Rally Service. A Medical doctor will be following the rally and the Georgian government provides emergency assistance on standby.
