The Tulpenrallye

A historical partnership

The legendary International Historic Tulpenrallye has been held from 1949 till 2016, taking its participants through Europe’s most challenging mountain passes and coarse landscapes for more than 60 years now. Here are some of the highlights of the rich heritage of this rally.

A great idea

Why don’t we just drive to Europe’s mountains, as we lack them ourselves here in The Netherlands? The Dutch tulip could serve as a symbol for our rally.” A great idea brewed by Dutch rally driver Mr Gatsonides and French driver Mr Angelvin.

The first Tulpenrallye

The Rallye des Tulipes was born. 159 teams marked the start of this event and of a rich tradition. British racing driver Mr Ken Wharton won the first ever trophy in his Ford Anglia that year.

The finish in an airport

After two disastrous years in which the rallye couldn’t be held in 1971, and in 1972, - the 1973 rallye starts for the first time ever in Warschaw, Poland and finishes in the International Airport of Schiphol, covering more than 3200 km.

First Dutch winner

Count van Zuijlen van Nijevelt wins the Tulip trophy and becomes the first Dutch driver to win The Tulpenrallye in his Jowett Javelin. However, most of the credits goes to his navigator, the talented Mr Eschauzier.

Milestone: the 60th edition

A historical milestone for The Tulpenrallye: its 60th edition is held. The oldest participating car, with start number #1, is the Mathis GM Sport (1925). The year ‘2013’ marks the first year in which Fromanteel partners with The Tulpenrallye, launching the legendary Tulip 60 Chrono watch.

Italian starting grid

For a second time in a row, the Tulpenrallye starts at the magnificent Grand Hotel Billia in Saint Vincent: a beautiful location situated in The Aosta Valley in the North of Italy. This year, the limited edition 'Tulip 63 Chrono' watch is launched.

Projections

Cherishing a rich heritage and appreciating a flourishing future

Mr Ken Wharton, the first winner of The International Historical Tulpenrallye, once said: Sometimes one has to tempt fate in order to feel alive. Fatally injured in 1957 when his car crashed in a race in New Zealand, Mr Wharton took those words close to his heart. Unfortunately resulting in a devastating tragedy. During his professional career, Mr Wharton taught us what it is to cherish a rich heritage in order to appreciate a flourishing future.

Fromanteel drawns inspiration from the words of Mr Ken Wharton to project the rich Tulpenrallye heritage on two of the finest objects of desire that are bound to thrill motor sports enthusiasts all over the world: fine classic automobiles and the Fromanteel limited edition Tulip Chrono Series.

As Official Time Partner, Fromanteel has created the exclusive limited edition Tulip 63 Chrono watch.

The Tulip 63 Chrono has a refined finish and is characterized by its sand-blasted stainless steel case and an anthracite colored dial.

The case back is engraved with the rally's logo, accompanied by the indication of the coordinates of this year's starting location in Saint Vincent, Italy.
