The Barcelona-Sitges International Vintage Car Rally is a race run by old cars every year in the month of March or April, since 1959. It is a unique event that brings together classic vehicles manufactured before 1924 to cover the distance of forty kilometers separating the Catalan municipalities of Barcelona and Sitges. All the participants dress with clothes according to the time of construction of the cars, transporting the spectator at the beginning of 20th century.
The winners of this very peculiar race, declared of National Tourist Interest, are not the fastest competitors. The most valued are the aesthetic aspects and the originality of the cars and the clothes of the members of the vehicles, not the speed or the mechanical resistance.
