Organized by Run&Drive, the Rodi Classic Trophy was a classic car meeting that took place on October 26-27 of 2019. The venue was the picturesque seaside town of Ermioni – a 2,5 hours drive from Athens – that was hosting the local Pomegranate Festival on the same weekend. Kindly invited by Run&Drive, we had the pleasure to participate in this event.
The participants on the wheel of classic and youngtimer vehicles, cruised the beautiful country roads around Ermioni and Porto Heli. The light schedule of the weekend allowed for plenty of time to enjoy the sunny weather, the coffee stops by the sea and the great food on the local taverns.
On the second day of the event, the participants took a midday break to display their vehicles on Ermioni’s port, side by side with the Pomegranate Festival. This got the attention of both the locals and the visitors, who took the opportunity for a closer look at the well preserved classic cars.
The Rodi Classic Trophy was a well ran event, in a relaxed, vacation-like atmosphere. Expect more to come from Run&Drive in the future, bringing together the passion for classic cars and the all-time-classic beauty of Greece.
