THE RICHARD MILLE PRINCESS RALLY
SINCE THE YEAR 2000, THIS UNIQUE WOMEN'S EVENT, ALMOST THE HAUTE COUTURE OF THE RALLY WORLD, BRINGS TOGETHER WOMEN WHO LOVE FREEDOM, CHALLENGE AND SPORT.
A great idea by Viviane and Patrick Zaniroli, a proven driver who made his mark on the Paris Dakar and organizer of the Snow and Ice Rally, the Alps Trophy and the TransMorocco. A forerunner in women's motor sport, the event is a week of adventure and proves the place of women behind the wheel. It has now acquired legitimacy among participants and partners alike, as proven by the support of the Richard Mille watchmaking company. During five days of competition, the route stretches over more than 1,600 kilometres in 5 stages on France's most beautiful roads between Paris and the South.
Glamorous finish in the South of France
The French Riviera is the favourite destination for the finish of the Princess Rally. It is in Saint-Tropez (seven times), Monaco, Cannes, Juan Les Pins, then Biarritz and this season in La Baule that the princesses have chosen to meet to celebrate their sporting exploits in complete elegance.
SYLVIE JARIER, AT THE WHEEL OF THE BERTAUD BELIEU FERRARI
Sylvie Jarier, wife of former F1 champion Jean-Pierre Jarier, has always had a passion for motorsports and has fond memories of her four participations in the Rallye des Princesses and particularly of the 2016 edition where she drove a mythical car under the colours of the Bertaud Belieu estate.
Sylvie, how was your passion for motorsports born?
I have always loved beautiful cars, I grew up with three brothers, I did a lot of karting in my youth, then I worked for the magazine Automobile Classic which gave me the opportunity to meet my husband the Formula 1 driver Jean-Pierre Jarier whom I followed in all his competitions, he entered me in my first race in 2015, it was the Princess Rally! I really liked the atmosphere and decided to continue the following year with a personal ambition: to use my name to highlight autism which is particularly close to my heart. I got closer to the OVA association (Objective Overcoming Autism), supported in this event by the hotel Le Château de la Messardière and the Domaine Bertaud Belieu. I was driving a Ferrari 328 and there I was leaving Paris for Saint6Tropez alongside my co-driver Sabine Planquart.
What racing memories do you have from that rally?
A superb memory of this mythical vintage car with an oldfashioned gearbox. We drove an average of 300 km per day, we crossed passes, hairpin bends, it was quite physical and so great!
Why do you like to take part in the Princess Rally?
For the competition, the passion for beautiful cars, the glamour and girly side of the rally, for friendship, adventure... This race gives us the opportunity to travel through France, to discover very prestigious places, magical landscapes... But also and above all to collect funds to support great associations. I can't wait to get back behind the wheel with the girls!
