Grand Prix des Clubs

Country painting

As in all the events by Peter Auto, the clubs, guardians of the automobile heritage, are always invited to the party. If they are brand clubs, they are gathered by country of origin and by era. The multi-make clubs and individual collectors form the Espace Collection,  a maxi-puzzle that the public can try to assemble…

Each time, about forty of these clubs, animators of this Elegant Sunday in the Countryside, take part in the huge Garden-Party, a real country painting which would have inspired some of the most illustrious impressionist painters. To be accepted inside the estate, cars must be pre-1966 or be part of the Happy Few list lien

From the sophisticated picnic hamper to the table decorated in style, the overall elegance of the presentation has to be harmonious to hope winning the Grand Prix Clubs -under the aegis of the FFVE (Fédération Française des Véhicules d’Epoque). It is awarded according to the quality of the presentation, the diversity and originality of the models on show as well as the care taken with the ‘Déjeuner sur l’Herbe’.
