The Mayan Rally 2019 this year will begin in Uxmal and conclude in Chetumal, with a tour of more than 18 Yucatan and Quintana Roo cities and towns, reported Benjamín de la Peña, entrepreneur and director of this classic auto event.
In 2019, he said, the sixth edition will integrate a convoy of 110 collector vehicles, from 14 countries, with judges from Argentina and Colombia and will make a broad tour of Yucatan and Quintana Roo to make known the great Mayan attractions.
Start of route
The Maya-Mexico Rally 2019 will be held from May 18 to 26, starting in Uxmal, with a dinner.
The official starter’s flag will be on the 19th in Maxcanú, from there to Hunucmá, that same day to arrive in Mérida, and in these three towns community activities will be carried out.
As usual, attendees and drivers will share activities with Mayan populations, providing wheelchairs and devices for people with disabilities.
The effort of this event, said Benjamín de la Peña, is an achievement, but at the same time a satisfaction.
This rally is among the 10 most important in the world based on the number of vehicles, their quality, and the interest of owners who bring wonderful vehicles that visit communities and deliver resources, wheelchairs and products for residents of these Mayan cities.
In its fifth edition, the Rally integrated 110 old and classic vehicles, and it was emphasized that the requirement to participate is that they have more than 40 years antiquity.
Finally, people were invited to view these classic vehicles, because they are a rolling museum, a parade of pieces of yesteryear, and restoring them has required passion, time and many resources.
