Raid Suisse - Paris

Raid Suisse

18-21/08/2015 International Rally

Banque Thaler took part in the prestigious Switzerland-Paris Rally Raid at the end of August.
This edition took us from Basel to Paris, passing through Dijon, Orleans, and the many châteaux that adorn this route.

After participating as a sponsor in 2014, we augmented our involvement with the organisers for this jubilee edition.
One of the activities organised was a photo shoot on the second day with the magnificent backdrop of the Château de Bourbilly. All the participants joined in the fun of the photo shoot to showcase their vehicles on the forecourt of the château.

All the contestants also received a polo shirt in the colours of Banque Thaler and the Rally Raid organisers as a souvenir of this 25th edition of the rally.
The line-up of cars was of a very high standard, including the quintessential English makes, as well as some iconic cars such as a Rolls Royce Phantom I, a Lagonda LG 45DHC, a Mercedes 300 SL, and several Citroën DS, along with some more unusual vehicles such as a Georges Irat or a Gilbern.

For the closing dinner, the organisers invited all the participants to one the grandest gala halls in the French capital, the Grand Hôtel Paris, where trophies were awarded to the various winners.
