Every year, Peter Auto celebrates a make or a model of cars that took part in the history of the Tour de France Automobile. Celebrating its 28th edition, it will be the long forgotten English makes that will receive all the attention. And they are numerous to have lined up at the start of the original race! Priority will therefore be given to the most exotic models, such as Frazer-Nash, Jowett, Sunbeam-Talbot and Fairthorpe. 15 of these models will be selected by the committee and will benefit from a 10% discount on their entry fees.
In the same way, and in order to favor the oldest cars, the rules and regulations of the Regularity section has evolved. Thus, only cars homologated before December 31st, 1965 will be able to compete for the general classification Regularity, this also stands for the Competition section. The later cars will be able to claim the different class victories according to their period, G, H or I.
The amount of applications received by the Peter Auto team compels them to limit the number of cars to 240. As usual, the selection committee will do its best to ensure a maximum of diversity with models and makes from different eras (see list of eligible cars). It goes without saying that priority will be given to the more interesting models as well as applications which have arrived first…
Entry fee is € 9,950 per car for a two people-crew. Minored entry fee (deadline 11/15/2018) is € 9,350. Entries deadline: 1st January 2019.
