Organised by Peter Auto, the 27th Tour Auto Optic 2000 event will bring together more than 230 classic cars for a massive five-day classic car drive discovering the French secondary roads interrupted by races on circuits and timed stages on closed roads.

What to Expect


On Monday 23rd April, cars will take part in a display in the Grand Palais in Paris.


Tuesday 24th April will see competitors (competition and regularity) depart from Paris for the five-day competition, with the last leg on the Cote d’Azur.


Each year, Peter Auto highlights one manufacturer or type of vehicle that has taken part in the history of the Tour de France Automobile. This year, the spotlight is on Italian makes and models that are no longer produced.
