  • Description

    EIGHT VETERAN CARS LINED UP IN PARIS TODAY (WEDNESDAY) FOR THE START OF THE 5TH COUPE INTERNATIONAL DES MUSEES DE L'AUTOMOBILE - A RALLY WHICH WILL TAKE THE VETERAN CARS TO SPAIN AND ITALY.

    THE RALLY IS IN TWO STAGES BEGINNING WITH A RUN OF OVER A 1,000 MILES (1600 KM) FROM PARIS TO BARCELONA IN SPAIN. DURING THIS FIRST PART OF THE RALLY, ONLY THE MOST MODERN OF THE COMPETING CARS WILL TAKE PART - THOSE BUILT BETWEEN 1905 AND 1916.

    AFTER A DAY OF REST IN BARCELONA, THE COMPETITORS WILL BE SHIPPED TO MARSEILLES WHERE THEY WILL BE JOINED BY THE OLDER COMPETITORS - THOSE CARS BUILT BETWEEN 1890 AND 1905. THE SECOND PART OF THE RALLY WILL TAKE THE COMPETITORS TO SAN REMO, ITALY AND THEN BACK TO THE FRENCH RIVIERA.

    DURING THE RALLY THE COMPETITORS WILL HAVE TO KEEP TO A STRICT AVERAGE SPEED AND THEY WILL BE PENALISED ON A TIME BASIS AT VARIOUS SECRET CHECK POINTS. THE ORGANISERS OF THE RALLY HAVE SAID THAT. IT WILL BE NO PLEASURE RIDE FOR THE COMPETITORS BUT THEY HOPE THAT IT WILL BECOME ONE OF THE GREAT EUROPEAN CLASSICS.
