The 2016 edition of the Tour Auto Rally reunited many historic race cars with the event that made them famous. Held April 18-24 on the secondary roads and race circuits of France, the 25th running featured more than 225 historic race cars — including the honored Ferrari 250 GT SWB Berlinetta, Jaguar Mark II and Ligier JS2 — that passed through the stopover towns of Beaune, Lyon, Valance and Marseille before reaching the finish in Cannes.
As tradition dictates, the 2016 Tour Auto Rally began with an exhibition of cars at the Grand Palais in Paris. The following day competitors set off from Paris for the Chateau de Courances and then onto the roads and circuits of France.
In addition to our main photo gallery, Sports Car Digest further documented the 2016 Tour Auto with the following ‘Behind the Scenes’ pictures that show the field of entrants at rest before they tore up the French countryside.
