Checks and scrutineering at the gardens of Tuileries
As in 2009, the Tour leave from the Jardins des Tuileries. An ideal location situated in the heart of the capital, for the many visitors who came to admire the public exhibition of the cars on Monday April 19, day of checks and scrutineering.
Some 220 cars gathered in the Tuileries Gardens.Among them seventeen Ferrari 250 GT SWBs, which have answered the organisers call to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of this models first victory in the Tour de France Automobile.
The 2010 grid respects the diversity which has made the events name. As usual, a large majority of exceptional sports models: Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato, Ferrari 250 GTO, Lamborghini Miura, Porsche 904 and 906, or Ligier JS2, but also a Citroen DS 19 or a Panhard Junior.
