A small fleet of about 30 classic cars from England began their Tour de Bretagne this morning Friday 24 June from the centre of St Pol de Leon in Finistere. The cars were all post second world war and varied in condition and type. I noted two early short wheel base Land Rovers, some MGA 1600s, a couple of Austin Healey 3000s, a Nissan Pau, a Volvo P1800, a more modern Aston Martin, A very unusual Royale Sabre (one of only 78 built). a Triumph Spitfire, and a lovely TR3. They were accompanied by a Brit Assist breakdown van ~ I hope that it is not needed.
The event will be a fantastic way of taking your classic car on a little tour with like minded people and with some interesting cars . I was curious to see the tulip map routing used by the entrants. I guess that this is a standard method of rapid map reading on a rally of this sort. I have to say that I am a bit old fashioned and like a good old map! What happens when you get lost? Where do you stay on these little jaunts?
The tour will take in some lovely parts of Brittany and end up each day in Treguier, itself a great place to go. I must get switched onto events like this. It would be fun to join in with my Citroen 2CV. See more photos
