2d Chouette Rallye
Octobre 28 – 29 – 30th 2022
Location : Pas-de-Calais department
I have the honor and pleasure to present to you the CHOUETTE RALLYE, which will take place on the weekend of 28th, 29th & 30th october 2022, under the direction of Dominique De Taverny. For this year 2022, I propose a new event: an autumn weekend in France. The CHOUETTE RALLYE is a surprise car rally at night in order to put a little “spice” and “bite” in the competition. You have the games, puzzles or questionnaires that will put your mind and your logic to work. However, nothing too complicated or too arduous in order to best preserve the good atmosphere that you will bring to this unique event! You will have a detailed road book so you don’t get lost. The main purpose of this outing is above all fun and relaxation. The rest of the weekend will be devoted to driving and exploring the region. It is important to note that this rally is preferably reserved for classic cars (more than 25 years old) or exceptions (rare vehicles produced in few copies).
I am counting on you to support this new event and hope to welcome you all on the 28th october 2022
For the 2 nights, you will sleep at the Najeti Hotel Château Tilques*** in Saint Omer (62). Located just 5 km from Saint-Omer in Pas de Calais department, Château Tilques was built in 1891 on the ruins of a 17th century mansion. The hotel has an indoor swimming pool, a tennis court and a bar. The rooms have either a modern decoration or a period style. A large part of the rooms are located in the outbuildings of the castle. Private parking is available on site. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the Channel Tunnel and ferry ports and very close to the border with Belgium.
