The first edition of the Sotogrande Grand Prix saw the entrants make their way from Seville’s iconic Plaza De España, through cultural Cordoba and culminating with a Flying 1/4 Mile into Sotogrande and Concours d’Elegance. Winners of the Sotogrande Concourse included an OSCA MT4 for Most Exciting Design, an Aston Martin DB2 DHC received a special award by the jury ‘Coup De Couer’ and Best of Show was awarded to a Hispano 1910, the favourite car of Alfonso XIII, King of Spain.

The Sotogrande Rally for vintage cars first registered between 1920 and 1965 led participants off the beaten track along the backdrop of spectacular roads, charming white-hill villages and magnificent mountain scenery. A 1957 Porsche 356 A won the Rally, followed by a 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 and a 1956 Porsche 356 A Speedster. The concurrent Sotogrande GT Tour for cars built in the last 20 years was won by a 2016 Mercedes-Benz AMG C63 S.
