Photos and Video from Peter Auto’s Tour Auto Optic 2000

Paris, France — The 29th iteration of Peter Auto’s Tour Auto Optic 2000 rally was held last week (Aug. 31 – Sept. 5) with 210 cars covering 1,234 miles throughout France. The tour began at the historical Grand Palais in Paris and culminated at the gates of Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet. VM reader and photographer Unai Ona followed the group throughout their journey and was generous enough to share his photos with us.

Peter Auto has also shared a number of videos from the event through their YouTube channel – like this one that shows the final leg of the trip and some spirited racing around Circuit Paul Ricard.

In all it looks like it was a spectacular week for all involved. Enjoy the sights.
