THE GREAT ROAD TRIP

LOS ANGELES TO ROME

THE GREAT ROAD TRIP 2022

KDA and KD-UK are planning an ambitious road trip, in a 29 horsepower 35-year-old Citroen 2CV in 2022, from Los Angeles to Rome from April to July 2022. The car will be shipped to Los Angeles and then shipped across the Atlantic from New York to Southampton.

The Citroen 2CV, affectionately known as the tin snail, is a cult car in Europe. It was first manufactured in 1948 and production ceased in 1990. The 2CV has been comprehensively refurbished for the trip.  The cost of the 2CV, and its restoration, has already been funded by a generous donor.

A seven-day trans alpine cycling event will be run alongside the road trip from Chamonix to Nice in July 2022. Classic Car clubs from across the United States are also expected to join various segments of the American trip.

In the USA
4,300
In Europe
2,300

The purpose of the Road Trip is to raise awareness of Kennedy’s Disease and to raise much-needed funds for the research programme.

Wherever possible, Kennedy’s Disease  sufferers will participate in the event.
