“Motor Passion” Draws Clubs and Hundreds of Exhibitors to Avignon


Avignon, 26 March 2022

Organized in association with the "Friends of the Circuit d'Avignon Vaucluse" (ACAV), who had been behind the "Grands Prix d'Avignon Vaucluse" and the long-running Avignon Motor show, and supported by French Federation of Vintage Vehicles (FFVE), the “Motor Passion” show is the largest of its kind in the south of France.

Occupying 10 halls, plus the outdoor esplanades of the Parc des Expositions, there was plenty of space for vendors of parts, accessories, documentation or scale models, in addition to classic car dealers, restorers, rally organizers, insurers and other specialized service providers.

“Gearheads” of any kind were enticed by a wide range of vehicles, from old motorcycles, trucks and tractors, to military and other specialty vehicles. About 100 clubs enjoyed the opportunity to connect with current members, recruit new ones and promote their brands and club activities.

The 2022 Special Themes

Among the highlights of the Avignon Motor Passion show, exceptional themed exhibitions were devoted to the jubilee of the Grands Prix d'Avignon Vaucluse, to Amilcar on the occasion of the brand's centenary, and to the 60th anniversary of the mythical Jaguar Type E.
