The Grand Tour – Coast to Coast

Spain – Bilbao to Marbella

For seventeen years The Grand Tour has taken teams on road adventures to Monte Carlo, Cannes, Barcelona and other iconic destinations. In 2017 the event will return to Spain for another six-night, thousand-mile adventure across the largely undiscovered heartland of this remarkable country. The cars will be trucked from the UK to the Bilbao start line before the 30 teams head off for another week of unforgettable driving. Deserted roads, exquisite hotels, the finest local cuisine and above all, great company – the essential ingredients of The Grand Tour.

Further details and the full itinerary of The Grand Tour 2017 will be announced soon, but you can register now by emailing

The Grand Tour – USA


After 17 years enjoying some of the finest roads in Europe, The Grand Tour is spreading its wings across the pond for the first-ever Grand Tour USA – and you are invited to join us

For our inaugural USA adventure we’re heading west to northern California for a 5-day tour to coincide with the greatest car event in the world, the Monterey Car Week.

The party starts in San Francisco, from where the twenty-five teams will head off to sample the diverse landscapes to the north and east, taking in Napa, the Sacremento Valley, Yosemite and Sierra Navada. And of course you can be sure that the Grand Tour traditions of great food, first-class hotels and meticulous organisation will be firmly on the agenda.

The tour rolls in to Monterey and across the finish line just in time for a long weekend of motoring heaven – The Quail, Concourso Italiano, The Rolex Motorsport Reunion at Laguna Seca, and the Pebble Beach Concours, as well as a host of parties, car launches and auctions.

The itinerary and full details for The Grand Tour USA will be available soon. Entry will be limited to just 25 teams, and we already have confirmed guests flying in from around the world. You can save a place by registering now – just email

We can arrange a rental car for you (from a modern supercar to a classic muscle car), or we can arrange the shipping of your own car.


Who are GTO Events?

Jeremy Jackson Sytner and Chris Bucknall have been organising tours for over 25 years. The philosophy behind the success of their tours is simple – focus on the people, not the cars (although if you look at the photos of previous events, you would be forgiven for thinking otherwise). We think of our events as parties on wheels (we leave the regularities, the 6am starts and the 3 star hotels to others). The Grand Tour is all about having fun, and bringing some good old-fashioned style to proceedings. The hotels are always the best in the regions we travel through, generally intimate, rural castles which we often take over. The menus, the wine and the hospitality are all planned with care and passion, and we make sure everyone arrives at the hotels in plenty of time to enjoy them.

All our events are underpinned by the kind of attention to detail that only comes with decades of experience. We pore over every detail to ensure our tours run seamlessly, from legal and insurance matters, to luggage arrangements and dietary requirements. Poppy McKenzie Smith and Sara Murtagh are now an integral part of the GTO team, helping us to achieve our aim of exceeding the expectations of guests with high expectations.

Jeremy Jackson Sytner & Chris Bucknall
Co-founders of The Grand Tour

Now in its eighteenth year, The Grand Tour is one of the most successful motoring events of its kind in the world. Over the years it has attracted teams from around the world (including Australia, the USA, Nigeria, France, Portugal, Belgium, Holland and Sweden). The event has been started by such luminaries as Jeremy Clarkson and Elizabeth Hurley, and there has even been a tv programme made about it by The Luxury Channel.

In addition to a growing number of tours under the Grand Tour label, GTO Events organises bespoke private tours for individuals and companies (this year we organised a tour to the Monaco Historic Grand Prix for a Ferrari dealership). In 2015 we organised The Highland Tour, part of The Concours of Elegance at The Palace of Holyroodhouse, for which we were awarded Tour of the Year at Octane’s International Historic Motoring Awards.
