BRINGING OLD RACING CARS BACK TO LIFE!
The 2021 edition of the Tour auto Optic 2ooo, the thirtieth, has picked up new landscapes between Paris and Nice, passing through Burgundy, Savoy and Auvergne. A new place of departure, and a new photographer. Mathieu Bonnevie, a lover of the Tour, gives us here his vision of a week of racing, a compilation of moments captured among the cars and competitors, on the special stages, the circuits and the links. And of course, a wealth of cars, each one exceptional, which make up a starting grid never seen before and never so rich. The Jaguar E, Shelby Cobra, Porsche 906 are there, as well as the Lotus, Aston, Alfa, Alpine. Of course, the jaded will say. In addition, this year there are a number of Jaguar Mk 2s and Ferrari 250 GTs, guest models. The Matra 650, the Ferrari 250 MM and the Ford GT40 make a glorious top to this pyramid.
A NEW LOOK AT OLD RACING CARS!
The 2021 edition of the Tour Auto, the thirtieth, offered a wealth of new landscapes, passing through Burgundy, Savoie and the Auvergne on its way from Paris to Nice. A new starting point too, and a new photographer. Mathieu Bonnevie, a lover of the Tour, shares with us his vision of a week of competition, a collection of fleeting images of the cars and competitors, on the special stages, circuits and liaison sections. And, of course, a multitude of cars, all of them exceptional, forming an unprecedented and unrivalled line-up at the start. The E-Type Jaguars, Shelby Cobras and Porsche 906s were there, so too the Lotus, Astons, Alfas and Alpines. Of course, the blasé would say. They were joined this year by a number of Jaguar Mark 2s and Ferrari 250 GTs as special guests. The Matra 650, Ferrari 250 MM and Ford GT 40 were the crowning glory at the top of the pyramid.
