This blog is run by  Patrimoine Sportif et Mécanique, an association working to keep alive the memory of the Autodrome of Linas Montlhéry. It wishes to make more people aware of the historical importance of this famous track.
We are trying to rally all those, individuals and organizations alike, who feel that the Autodrome is really an historical place and that everything should be done to gather and preserve documents about its history. Our goal is to try to set up a spot where documents and other archives about the Autodrome could be preserved and shown.
This blog is open to all those who would like to contribute to this noble cause. We will publish here all information and news about the Autodrome, its founders and its many users over the years.
You can contribute by adding your documents, pictures, stories. It is vital that all those who would have original and unknown documents make them available.

I am delighted to have this opportunity to present the “classical” 2011 version of an event which was first held 19 years ago. At the time, I would never have imagined this! Having brought new life to the great names in the history of rallies – the Corsica in 1987, the Alpine Rally in 1988 and the Tour de France in 1989 – I then had the idea of organizing an original winter event. This would start from the capital and would have, on the program, two circuits over two days – although originally reserved for vintage vehicles, it would later include modern grand tourers.


The Paris Rally was born.

After 17 editions, Stéphane Giraud and myself have witnessed the modernization of the vehicles which take part: 10% of the vehicles were modern 10 years ago, compared to 75% last year. Although there is a certain passion for both categories, their performances and uses are not at all comparable. Thus, faced with this logical development, the idea of proposing two rallies in the same spirit became quite natural – with each one being different and adapted to the cars.
Large and fast circuits, with simplified links, are scheduled for the modern GTs, whilst more winding roads with itineraries on smaller secondary roads have been selected for the vintage cars.

Many of you possess both exceptional modern cars and older vintage cars. On March 18th, 2011, departing from the Eiffel Tower, we now offer you the possibility of experiencing two magical days in the constantly developing technology of the 21st century. Alternatively, you can join us on April 2nd to experience the great sensations of the
vintage cars in the “Classic” rally.




I am both a collector and a generalist and I love all cars. It is a real pleasure for the Rallystory team to see you driving cars with such different shapes, capacities and mechanical designs. What memories come flooding back at the wheel of these legendary cars: the metallic sound of a Porsche’s air-cooled engines; the road-holding of a Mini Cooper; the gear change of a Ferrari V12; the charm of a Morgan or an Austin Healey; the throaty sound of the engines of a Mustang V8 or Corvette; the agility of the small Alpine, Lotus Elan or Alfa Romeo saloons, without forgetting the never-ending bonnet of the Jaguar E-type – a car which will celebrate its 50th anniversary on the same date as the rally! These models of sports car have all played their part in a century of automobile history, by constantly contributing towards the development of safety, reliability and user comfort with technological advances such as independent wheels, disc brakes, heating and de-icing, lighting and seatbelts and injection engines, etc…

I would like to thank you all very much for participating in the Paris Rally and for building on its success since 1993.

After some years, the UTAC has accepted to re-open its famous Montlhéry track to a limited number of private events for 2009 and we are delighted to be part of them. To start the season, we will use the famous 3.3 kilometre-track, using the banking and its three chicanes, on Saturday 14th March 2009.


This is a social event to enjoy this very historical venue, without any notion of competition and no times being recorded. We are therefore asking each person,who participates as an entrant, a driver and a passenger, to respect the track’s regulation.


The program will be as follow:


8H - 9H: Welcome

9H: Briefing

10H - 12H: Track time

12H - 14H: Lunch

14H - 18H: Track time


Cars will be divided into three groups running consecutively, by sessions of twenty minutes. There are strict regulations both in terms of safety and noise to be able to access Montlhéry, which must be respected. Therefore,wewill have to have the details of every person entering the site and all cars must be silenced to be allowed to run. Already entered are Grand Prix Bugattis, a Delage 15S8, two Gordinis (the straight eight cylinder T24S and the T15C Coupe driven by Fangio and Gonzales at Le Mans in 1950, both cars having raced at Montlhéry in period) and perhaps the Porsche 917K, which won the last major International race held at Montlhéry: the 1971 1000 kilomètres de Paris. To keep a period feel to the event, cars will need to be pre-72.


If you would like to take part in the ‘Coupes de Printemps’ on 14th March 2009, please fill in the enclosed entry form, each entry is for one car and two people, to include lunch.

The most famous French historic rally will be back in 2009 on one of the most mythical track, the Montlhéry Autodrome. The first special race of the 2009 Tour Auto will take place on the 12,5 km routier on April 21st.
For ten years this historic rally had been away from the Autodrome.

The Tour de France had been a regular user of the track before WWII. Between 1956 and 1960 several races took place at Montlhéry and in 1959 the Jaguar MKI began its long string of victories in the French race.

With the 2009 Tour Auto Optic 2000 the Linas-Montlhéry track will again welcome an international event. Together with Le Mans Classic, the Ronde du ventoux and the Historic Grand Prix de Pau, Peter Auto is doing its best to revive the memory of French automobile sport.

Last saturday the mythical Autodrome of Linas-Montlhéry welcomed several hundred historic French cars and thousands of visitors.

Organized by UTAC within the French National Heritage days, this exceptional meeting has shown that, when they have the opportunity to come back to the old banking, owners of historic cars and visitors alike are willing to drive hundreds of Km just to be able to walk on this historical site.

When owners are also been given  the possibility to drive their own car on the only complete period banking in Europe, they are ready to drive thousands of Km. When they know that really exceptional cars will be on show or even seen on the track, they will come from all over the world.

That is what happened last Saturday.

Exceptional cars were present, such as the Renault 40 CV record car, the Peugeot 301 C

Miramas record car and the exceptional Renault "Etoile Filante" powered by a Turboméca turbine which reached 309km/h in 1956. As it was made to go straight it was not driven on the curved banking.

But very rare cars were also to be seen in the paddock. Such as the D8S Delage driven by Patrick Delâge, grand-son of Louis Delâge. A 1923 Léon Paulet, a car manufactured in Marseille. A rarely seen 2 litre Bignan, the Chenard & Walker "Torpille", several DB racers, Amilcar CGSS, Georges Irat, Bugatti, and an exceptional racer built by Ferry powered by a 750cc Renault engine and capable of 200 km/h.

There were also several racing monoposto, among them a F1 Matra, driven by Jacky Stewart in the 70s, another F3 Matra and several Formula junior or Formule France.

Of course there were also hundreds of Renault, Peugeot and Citroën. A rare 2 CV Sahara with two engines was an interesting sight.

But cars were not everything. Spectators have noted with great pleasure that UTAC has begun to renew the historical buildings of the Autodrome. The outside of the banking, the pits and the grand-stand have been repainted and period advertisements have been added to give a 50's atmosphere. A lot of funds have also been spent on the track and amenities. This shows that the managers of UTAC have understood the historical importance of the Autodrome for the classic car owners and also for the general public. We now can be certain that the Autodrome will be preserved for the near future.
