This rally is a real open-air encyclopedia and an ode to motor racing. Traditionally it starts from the Grand Palais (Paris) where the cars taking part will be on display.

Today, motor sport knows no frontiers as championships and the events counting for them are held all over the world. But to which country do we owe this brilliant idea? To France, where the very first motor race was organised at the end of the 19th century. It was in this era, in 1899 to be exact, that the Tour de France Automobile was held for the first time. The aim was to promote motor car mobility all over the country. Today, this race is considered as the most important motoring event of the 19th century, and is indeed the oldest still being organised. Since 1992, the Peter Auto teams have paid homage to this French pioneering and sporting spirit with the Tour Auto Optic 2000 as well as continuing to write the history of French motor racing.

Eligible models are those entered for the race between 1951 and 1973 (a few exceptions are allowed).
