Regulation

The Tour Auto Optic 2000 is reserved in priority and on invitation to the cars, the type of which competed in the “Tour de France Automobile” between 1951 and 1973. Although all the competitors take the same routes, they are not all in the same event. To address to the different methods of timing, they are split into two categories assigning the cars to one of the two proposed: one devoted to regularity, the other to pure speed.

Competition

The stopwatch acts as arbitrator. To win, the best possible times must be made during the special stages on the tracks and closed roads. Teams and cars must meet the requirements of the FIA’s sporting code, Appendix K. Logically, the lead of the competition classification is monopolised by the sharpest cars : AC Cobra, Ford GT40, Jaguar E-Type, Porsche 904 to name just a few. The classification is divided into four categories: Overall “scratch” (save G/H/I groups), G Competition (1966 to 1971), H/I Competition (1972 à 1981) and Index of Performance.

Regularity

Regularity is a different rhythm, but the challenge is also demanding for those who play the game seriously. Three speed averages are proposed before the start of the rally*. The crew shall, within the speed average previously chosen, stick to the time selected in the bracket proposed in accordance to each stage difficulty. The key to success? A perfect stopwatch command for sure, but also a perfect harmony between driver and co-driver.
