Post by Oldconn » Wed Apr 20, 2016 3:18 pm

The 2016 edition kicked-off yedterday in Paris, the first stage ending at Beaune after visiting a large chunk of Burgundy. Some good videos on Youtube, including this one at Dijon-Prenois: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUU2B22-ifs;
For those who don't know this rally is for classic cars, restricted to cars up to 1975 which could have competed in the original rally. This year is the 25th anniversary of the revival , organised nowadays by Peter Auto ( LMC 24, Spa Classic, Grand Prix de l'Age D'Or, etc) and sponsored by a national chain of optician shops.

No daube, I'm afraid, Hotel la Roque has been closed for a couple of years now.
I don't know where everyone will meet up, that was the regular base for all the rallies in the region.
Too sad.
