Tradition and history

Gstaad Palace-Challenge

If you’ve ever wanted to experience a truly special kind of road event, we recommend visiting the Gstaad Palace in August. For two days, a number of hand-selected historical sports cars are put through their paces at the annual Gstaad Palace-Challenge. The participants are ambitious bon vivants, who take greater pleasure in a good spin than in scoring a win. Friendly chats and the enjoyment of life’s pleasures are never allowed to fall by the wayside during this alpine rally. Are you ready?
