For the second time the mythical Reims track, created in 1925 and idle for several years, was again opened to historic cars last Week End.
Participants have been able to drive the 7,1 Km circuit several times Saturday and Sunday and have offered a nice show to the many spectators who came though the weather was terrible on Saturday.
On Sunday, a bright sun tried to dry the parking lots mud.
More than 200 cars and 60 motorcycles were driven on the track. From a veteran Léon Bollée to a Ferrari GTO. Several Bugatti, 37, 35B were present, competing against Alvis, Bentleys and Amilcar.
Highlight of the day was certainly to be able to see Hans Hermann driving the winning Mercédès Benz W 196R of 1954 around a track where he was present 54 years ago with a similar car.
