Weds 1st May, Paray Le Monial
The Optic 2000 2019 edition hit town on its way from Dijon to Lyon, in true French fashion it arrived late with long gaps between cars, but the weather was fine, hot sunshine all afternoon.
Support cars were almost all Ferrari, nice job if you can get one.
The local boy racers and classic car fans added their own impromptu show to fill in before the main event.
Just a few pics of some of the cars .

Thx for the pics! Some very cool stuff there... 8)
I’ve always dreamt of taking part in the Tour Auto. Such an epic event!
It’s very much a playground for the rich and famous, and thus far I’ve certainly been nowhere near being able to justify the cost of signing up - not to mention getting my sprint/hillclimb BMW 2002ti sorted enough to take part in such an event. But one can always dream - maybe one day...


Kind Regards,

Just catching up on this. You may be interested that a motorsport photographer friend of mine spent the week in France covering the event - his photographs can be seen here

Thanks Roger, I've only looked at the first batch so far but it's a great photo-reportage.

Any idea how he took this without a reflection of the camera :shock:
Damn, it's a png file, I'll have to convert it and get back to you 8)
