About Italy to Paris

Our missionless statement

Think of it as a mix between the worlds of Burt Reynolds and Wes Anderson; more of a state of mind than a state of reality.
In general terms, participants all purchase or borrow an old beater or random ride and see if it will make the 300 mile route… with a series of challenges! No Fees or Registration (since no one is really in charge). Meet us in Italy, Texas (you won’t miss us0 around 9am and you will be given a poorly drawn map.

This event is, and always will be, dedicated to the memory of our friend Carl Swick. He embodies the spirit of Italy to Paris and we miss his wit, charm and intellect. We do not miss the bottles of urine landing in the front seats of our cars, however.
