Tour Auto 2005 - provisional entry list revealed by Peter Auto

The Tour Auto is one of the two or three international events that no historic car enthusiast would miss. The revival of a famous rally, the Tour Auto puts together two hundred of the most attractive historic cars.

The mix of "road stages" - timed sessions on closed roads, or on racetracks - and road sections, is one of the successful ingredients of the event. Furthermore, to break the routine, the route is changed each year. Thus, the competitors join the sporting timed stages while discovering the French countryside, according to an itinerary (combining tourism and gastronomy) cleverly selected, and ignoring the major roads. During these road sections the drivers must abide by the French laws of the road.

Eligibility -

The rules of selection to participate in the Tour Auto are very strict. The two hundred cars accepted are those or the model that competed in the TdF between 1951 and 1973. There might be one or two justified exemptions. These cars can either be popular ones such as the Citroën 2CV, the Renault 4CV or Dauphine, or the most sophisticated cars of their period (like the 50 Ferraris that usually enter). There are also circuit prototypes, Austin Minis or Healeys, Frazer Nashs, Siatas, Maseratis and Porsches.

  • Editor's note; A few words of explanation may be of use to those not completely au fait with the nuances of International Historic Racing. The 'Competition' section is for those cars entitled to actually win the event as pre-1966 FIA sports cars. The 'G/H/I' class is still a competitive class (very much so!), but is for later cars of a type that competed in the Tour in its later incarnations, for example a Ferrari 512M or 'Daytona', or Matra 670 Prototype. It is from this class that the fastest stage and racing times will come. The 'Regularity' section is for those participants who do not wish to actively compete, merely follow the route in a suitable car. No competition licence is therefore required. With grateful thanks to regular competitor Jon Gross for this explanation.
