Our Ardennes, Alsace, the lakes, the Alps and the sea!!! …

So Once again we have devised an exclusive programme for the participants in “The National Classic Tour 2005® ”and this year with a truly exclusive start to the tour with a circuit competition at probably the most favourite drivers' circuit in Europe…

Through the Ardennes from Francorchamps to Luxembourg,
from Luxembourg to Strasbourg, via the « Petite Suisse Luxembourgeoise » and the plains of Alsace,
from Strasbourg to Neuchâtel, via the Alsatian vineyards, the Vosges to end up on the banks of one of the most beautiful Swiss lakes,
from Neuchâtel to Aix les Bains, through the wilderness and the splendours of the Jura,
from Aix les Bains to Saint Tropez,, via the Alps and their mythical passes : a « marathon » tour on the penultimate day taking the participants back to the Port of Saint Tropez !!!

This year as always, we'll be insisting on splendid " regularity stages " and breathtaking scenery that have become the hallmark of The National Classic Tour. The last tour day will be a longer but easier drive so that you can enjoy some well earned relaxation with the prize giving arranged on one of the gorgeous beaches of this world famous village.
