The Village

The village, which is rebuilt and dismantled overnight in each stop-over town, attracts increasingly large crowds year after year. It is where the entertainment and activities put on by the Tour’s partners can be found starting with Optic 2000, which has been a faithful partner of the event since 2004 under the Lissac brand and since 2009 under the name Optic 2000. On all the legs of the Tour Auto, Optic 2000 and Carene Assurances remains faithful to their values and highlights its professionalism by providing visual and auditory diagnoses. Motul makes a photo activity and Vicomte A. presents the new official clothing line.
