Imagine chasing a string of motorcycles along a serpentine alpine road, the sun shining (maybe) and the wind (or snow) in your hair. Now imagine doing this with your best mate next to you, in a Morgan Super 3 three-wheeler. This could be your reality, if you enter the Great Malle Mountain Rally giveaway.
Hosted by Malle London, the Great Malle Mountain Rally is a celebration of the wildest landscapes in Europe. The rally takes teams of riders on custom, classic, and modern classic motorcycles through the Alps, from Austria to Monaco. That’s 1,500 miles of winding roads covering six countries in six days, traversing passes as high as 2,770 meters (9,088 ft).
Your days begin with a rally briefing, where teams are guided through the five checkpoints outlined on their daily route cards. Rally marshals are available to support riders along the journey and timing checkpoints are handled by Malle staff. No one really wins, but the objective is to get as close to the checkpoint set time as possible.
Too fast? You lose. Too slow? You lose. Close to the set time? Well… you lose. But really, you win, because you’re experiencing one of the most dramatic landscapes on the planet.
All rally-goers sleep in luxurious canvas bell tents that are set up and waiting at the destination of each day’s ride. Nearly every night is spent in a different country and each evening’s menu is designed by private chefs to celebrate that unique region. Each rally participant is also given a distinct “Malle Mountain Rally Duffel” emblazoned with their rally number, which is transported to each day’s destination for them.
You, and a co-pilot of your choice, will be driving a custom Malle Rally Spec Morgan Super 3. Is it a motorcycle? Is it a car? Mostly neither and a little bit of both.
The Morgan Super 3 is a side-by-side three-wheeler built by the English boutique auto manufacturer Morgan Motor Company. The newly designed Super 3 takes its inspiration from the curvaceous lines of the jet era and pairs the fresh monocoque design with a Ford-supplied 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine.
The new Super 3 is a significant departure from the S&S V-Twin powered original in terms of form and performance, yet the essence of the three-wheeler’s quirky and adventurous spirit remains. It drives like a car, yet you’re exposed like you would be on a motorcycle.
Our friends at Malle generally focus on motorcycle luggage and apparel, but they’ve got a soft spot for the quirky Super 3. A prototype of the rally spec model spent the duration of the Malle Mile ripping around the grounds, fitted with a specially designed luggage system. As rally support vehicles go, it doesn’t get any cooler than this.
You’ll need to know how to drive a manual transmission and have a valid driver’s license if you’re going to pilot this beautiful machine through the Alps. Some motorcycle riding experience would be advantageous too; inclement weather is part of the adventure, and motorcyclists are used to being exposed to the elements.
If imagining yourself and your closest compadre side by side with the wind in your hair, taking in the breathtaking sights, sounds, and smells of the Alps doesn’t get your blood pumping, you might want to check your pulse.
The only question is: who will be your co-pilot? Share this with them and prod them to enter to increase your odds of attending the Great Malle Mountain Rally!
