The sixteenth Classic Car Rally takes place this week. The cars will undergo their trials in the Tramuntana, heading to Pollensa, Campanet, Sa Calobra, Esporles, Puigpunyent, Es Capdella and Andratx. The whole of the mountain range is thus covered, and in order for it to be covered, these classic cars do require being at least reasonably well powered, something which cannot be said of Majorca’s most classic car of all - the very first one on the island.
