Each year, 90 crews from 12 different countries cover close to 1,600 kilometers along the most beautiful roads in France for the Rallye des Princesses, a women-only vintage car rally.

This year was the rally’s 18th anniversary and its third consecutive year sponsored by luxury watchmaker, Richard Mille. 

Racers departed from the Place Vendôme in Paris to arrive five days later at the iconic Place des Lices in Saint-Tropez.

The Ferrari 328 GTS #89 crewed by Nadia Moreau and Valérie Dot held the lead for the majority of the race, but a navigation error allowed the Porsche 911 #81 crewed by Véronique Castelain and Stéphanie Wante to clench victory.

In the classic category for newer vehicles, the top spot went to Marion Lohio and Sabine Cybulski, aboard PGO Seven.
