If there was a word for the sheer pleasure afforded by seeing classic cars competing in anger, the Tour Auto would encapsulate it.

Last year’s 29th edition went ahead against all odds, with dozens of exquisite machines departing from Paris’ Grand Palais on 31st August, and arriving at the Circuit Paul Ricard five days and 1,234 miles later, after visiting Clermont-Ferrand, Limoges, Toulouse and Pont du Gard.
Perhaps one of the Tour’s most exciting stages is the sweeping mountain pass of Mont Ventoux, upon which a special stage was held last year. And thanks to Rallye84, we can enjoy one of the run’s finest bends as if we were there in person. Watch as everything from Ferraris to E-types, classic Rally to endurance racers take on Stage five of the epic race, flying through the cambered bends fearlessly.
