After enjoying the meal and sociable drink last night in Bled, the teams were making sure they were up bright and early for the drive to Prague. This was the last day of the 2011 Motoscape Rally, so no challenges today, except to get to Prague in one piece! The Arthur Ant Hill Mob made sure they set off extra early for their taxi to make it in time (which it did, yey!)
The journey from Bled to Prague in the Czech Republic is around 400 miles, so most teams took the direct route to get straight to the hotel. Today is a reasonably long drive compared to other days on the Motoscape Rally, but we unfortunately can’t be driving up and down mountains and passes every day (although I’m sure Alex, Lyndon and Andy from 3 Idiots Abroad would disagree!!).
Somes teams who still wanted to visit somewhere different on the way to a small detour and visited Český Krumlov. This is probably one of the best mediaeval cities in central Europe and was made a ‘Unesco world heritage site’ in 1992.
The drive from Slovenia to the Czech Republic varies from the amazing scenery, as you start the journey with the awe-inspiring mountain landscape in Bled, to the rural landscape of the Czech Republic, which is completely different to the other countries we have visited on the rally. To top it all a fitting end to this years rally has to be a night in the world famous city of Prague, what more could you ask for!
Most teams got to the hotel in Prague in plenty of time to check the bar was fully stocked and to get ready for the night ahead and the final meal and presentation on behalf of Motoscape.
The meal and presentation was held in a cellar restaurant in the centre of Prague and was a nice place for teams to get together one last time, have a few beers and find out the overall winners of this years rally before heading into the beautiful city of Prague.
What a great night for everyone to get together, and well done to Team Gee for winning the 2011 Motoscape ”Road Trip to Prague”.
After the meal and presentation the teams hit the city for Prague to celebrate the end of an amazing experience, and one that many of the teams said they would love to do again next year.
Prague has something for everyone, whether you want to have a relaxing coffee in the old town, or you want to finish the rally with a big blow out at the cities best night clubs, you really can’t find a better place to end our European Road Trip!
We’ve all got so many great memories from this year’s rallies, and it’s been one hell of journey. We, the organisers can safely say it has been the best year yet, mainly due to the enthusiasm of the teams, the effort put in to their bangers and the fact it was just a great bunch of people. We want to keep improving the rally every year so thanks to all the teams for their feedback, everything will be considered and we appreciate you taking the time to help us make it even better for next year.
Overall it’s been an amazing, hard working but enjoyable week, and we just want to say a massive, massive thank you to everyone who took part, we hope you all had a fantastic time and hope to see you again next year!
