On Tuesday 7th February Peter Auto took advantage of the press day before the opening of the 42nd Salon Rétromobile (8-12 February) to present its 2017 season.



EIGHT EVENTS AND SOME NEWCOMERS!



The 2017 calendar contains a certain number of well-known eagerly-awaited events like the 26th Tour Auto Optic 2ooo and  the  4th  Chantilly  Arts  &  Elegance  Richard  Mille.  And  there  are  some  newcomers  that  are  synonymous  of  the  on-going  passion  that’s  kept  alive  and  rekindled  among  the  public  and  participants  who  flock  to  the  events  organised  by  Peter Auto in ever-increasing numbers.



The classics - Jarama-Classic (31 March-2 April)



the event held on the Jarama circuit beside Madrid was part of the 2016 calendar, and it will again kick off the 2017 season with the six Peter Auto grids – Classic Endurance Racing 1 & 2, Heritage Touring Cup, Sixties’ Endurance, Trofeo Nastro Rosso and Group C Racing, which will be joined by guest grids.





- Spa-Classic  (19-21  May)



:  the  Belgian  event  was  created  in  2011  on  what  is  the  drivers’  favourite  circuit.  It  has  continued to grow in importance and today it is among the major European rendezvous for historic races.




- Grand  Prix  de  l’Age  d’Or  (9-11  June)


:  this  great  name  in  historic  racing  taken  over  again  by  Peter  Auto  in  2014,  has  recaptured  its  former  glory.  It  has  become  a  premium  rendezvous  for  enthusiasts  because  of  its  much-loved  recently  revamped Dijon-Prenois circuit allied with the art de vivre in Burgundy.




- Monza-Historic (30 June-2 July)


: the Monza Autodromo, the temple of speed and home of the famous tifosi, already hosted an event in 2015. This year it will again welcome the usual Peter Auto grids plus guest grids in the early summer.




- Les Dix Mille Tours (20-22 October):



 as usual this event will take place on the Paul Ricard circuit with the Peter Auto grids. It is being held for the eighth time in 2017 and will ring down the curtain on the 2017 season.





The blue-riband events




 - Tour  Auto  Optic  2ooo  (24-30  April)



: the  26th  staging  of  this  event,  which  has  helped  consolidate  Peter  Auto’s  reputation, will be run over a new route in the west of France with a leg in Brittany for the first time in the Tour’s history and the finish in Biarritz.


- Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille (10 September) :



 this event, the brainchild of Peter Auto, combining Concours d’Elegance, Concours d’Etat, Concours de Club and the French Art de Vivre has been held three times (2014, 2015 and 2016), and has conquered the general public as well as attracting participants from all over the world. It is now part of the three most prestigious rendezvous of its kind, and the fourth Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille promises to be even more spectacular. 





 The newcomers



- Hungaroring-Classic (29 September-1st October)



: one  of  Peter  Auto’s  main  aims  is  to  give  participants  in  its  different  grids  the  opportunity  to  race  on  new  circuits  on  a  regular  basis,  so  it  is  organising  its  first  historic  race  meeting  on  the  Hungaroring 18 km north east of Budapest.



- Euro F2



: after making Group C an integral part of its repertoire in 2016, Paris-based organiser Peter Auto has created a seventh grid for this year, the first one devoted to single-seaters. Euro F2 will bring together the F2 cars that marked the halcyon  years  of  the  European  F2  Championship  between  1967  and  1978.  At  one  time  F2  was  considered  as  the  stepping stone to Formula 1 and over 10 years it was a training ground for drivers who went on to write the history of motor sport.
