The Kunisaki Peninsula, where you can view rich nature and feel the nice autumn breeze.
The Shikoku Mountains, where the range of divine and precipitous mountains rises, and the beautiful coastline of Setouchi.

This time we will drive on a route of 1,100 km, which is never taken before, over four days.
We will follow various winding roads and the coastline of the Seto Inland Sea alternately
so we are sure that you can experience the real thrill of a classic car rally.
