Rally Peace by rare vehicles finishes at the SPIEF 17 venue
At 17:00 on May 31, the eve of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum main programme, CEC Expoforum will host the finishing line of Rally Peace from Monte Carlo to St. Petersburg.
Well-known representatives of European dynasties and aristocracy have come together to travel, in their personal rare cars, through 11 countries, calling for peace and co-operation with Russia. The Rally began on May 27 from Monaco’s main square. Participation in the car marathon was confirmed by Prince Serge Vladimir Karageorgevitch of Yugoslavia in his 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith and Prince Emanuel Filiberto of Savoy, Prince of Venice and Piedmont, who owns a 1960 Bentley S2. The total value of the vintage cars taking part in the Rally is over EUR 16,000,000.
The Rally in support of peace and co-operation is supported by representatives of the following dynasties: the great granddaughter of Marquis Gilbert de La Fayette, Countess Genevieve de la Pomélie-Lafayette, Princes Olga Romanova, who bears the royal surname of Emperor of All Russia Nicholas II, the great granddaughter of the well-known Prince Otto von Bismarck, Countess Elizabeth von Alexander-Bismarck, Prince Guido Arangi Degli Estensi, Knight of the Maltese Order Francesco Russo, special representative of the Government of the Republic of San Marino Mike Bruschi and UN representative Jean Bernard.
The Rally Peace project was presented at the Cannes Festival on May 24 as an exhibition of rare vintage cars. The organisers plan to make Peace Rally an annual peace show uniting people from different countries.
