2023 White Nights

16th June to 2nd July 2023

I can’t quite remember when this rally was first proposed but, like a lot of other things, Coronavirus got in the way and it was postponed for quite a while. Last year the organisers, Bespoke Rallies, started promoting it again so we very quickly put in an entry.

Way back in 2013 you might recall that we did a huge rally in S America from Buenos Aries to Usuhaia at the southern tip. Despite what our friends in New Zealand might say, we did drive the most southerly race circuit in the world at Rio Grande on Terra del Fuego and finished up at the end of Ruta 40, the most southerly road in the world. Naturally when the White Nights was proposed we had no hesitation to go it as it drives as far North as you can in the world to Nord Kapp (North Cape) at the very top of Norway.

Some of our friends drove their open pre-war car another rally up that way a while ago and even in mid summer it looked decidedly cool and wet so we made the decision to renovate an old MGB GT that we have for this trip. Doors, windows, a heater and even a roof will be quite luxurious.
