Gaspar Ulliel at the start of the Tour Auto Optic 2000!

13.02.2018: The French actor will be having his maiden outing in this year’s Tour Auto Optic 2000. This historic rally between Paris and Nice organised by Peter Auto will take place from 23rd to 28th April.

The French actor will be having his maiden outing in this year’s Tour Auto Optic 2000. This historic rally between Paris and Nice organised by Peter Auto will take place from 23rd to 28th April.
 


In 2016, Gaspard Ulliel was a low profile visitor at the exhibition of the cars in the Grand Palais the day before the Tour Auto Optic 2000 began. This year he will be at the start of the event in a Triumph TR6, which he’ll be driving in the regularity category. In 2005 he won the César for the best male newcomer for his role in Un long dimanche de fiançailles, and last year he was awarded the César for the best actor for his performance in Juste la fin du monde.



At present he is one of the most sought-after actors on the French scene, and in the near future he will share the billing in the film Eva with Isabelle Huppert. “It’s all coming together nicely for me. I’m going to finish shooting a series at the beginning of April and the Tour Auto falls at just the right moment,” he smiled during his visit to the Rétromobile Show.
 


While it’s a first for Ulliel in motor racing, he’s no stranger to the historic car scene. “As an adolescent I was already dreaming about collector cars, in particular the Dino range,” he said on Friday evening when he visited the stand of Carene Assurance, his sponsor. “I like old cars and the sensations that come with them. I haven’t tested the Triumph yet, but I’ll soon be able to and I can’t wait to discover the Tour Auto route and feel the adrenaline of this iconic race.”
 


Ulliel won’t be the only actor at the start in Paris on Tuesday 24th April. Alexandre Brasseur who is currently appearing in the series Demain nous appartient on TV will also be taking part. Visitors will be able to meet all the crews in the Tour Auto Optic 2000 in the Grand Palais (23rd April) and then in the parc fermés in Besançon (24th April), Megève (25th April), Avignon (26th April), Aix-en-Provence (27th April) and Nice where the 27th rally finishes on 28th April.
