27th Tour de France Optic 2000

23rd - 28th April 2018

Event report and photos by Raymond Bonnello

Paris-Nice in five legs

In keeping with tradition, the 2018 Tour Auto Optic 2000 began on Monday 23rd April with a not-to-be missed day when the cars taking part will be on display in the Grand Palais (Paris).

The next day, competitors (competition and regularity) left the capital for five days of competition on 4 circuits (Dijon-Prenois, Bresse, Ledenon, Paul Ricard) and 10 special stages.

Every year the route of the Tour Auto Optic 2000 is changed, and in 2018 it included Besançon, Megève, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence.

The chequered flag was waved on Saturday 28th April on the evening of the last leg in Nice.

For my part, I was present on the circuits of Ledenon and Paul Ricard.

The competitors were divided into two categories.

Competition

The stopwatch acts as arbitrator.

To win, the best possible times must be made during the special stages on the tracks and closed roads.

The classification is divided into four categories: Overall “scratch” (save G/H/I groups), G Competition (1966 to 1971), H/I Competition (1972 à 1981) and Index of Performance.

My favourite

For this event, my favorite is not the most expensive, or the most powerful cars presented but surely the most popular (for French and maybe for others).

The model competing in this 27th edition of the Tour Auto Optic 2000 is a 1951 A type powered by a 375 cc twin-cylinder.
