Sadly the end of COVID is not yet upon us, and this has led Peter Auto to take the decision, in accordance with all the towns along the way, to postpone the Tour Auto again this year. To have run on 19-24 April, the new date for the 30th running of the event will be 30 August-4 September. The itinerary remains unchanged with the start from the Grand Palais Ephémère in Paris and the finish in the beautiful town of Nice, as it did 30 years ago.
“We’ll be back on the road for the Tour Auto Optic 2ooo in September, a date which met with great success last year,” commented Patrick Peter.
This postponement has opened an opportunity for the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet, which had to be postponed from March, to re-schedule to 30 April-2 May.
