For the first special stage at Montbeliard the Tour had to take the motorway to go South-West for about 70 kilometers adding to the high amount of kilometres the crews had to take under their wheels. This is not uncommon on the TA to have these junctions between interesting spots for the high speed trial on closed roads. After the chase over the small country roads the tour led through a canyon, due to the early morning sun just a few sun rays found their way over the surrounding mountains of the Jura. After the chilly temperatures down there the road climbed up so the participants could enjoy the drive in perfect sunshine.

As today there was no track racing in compensation no less than three special stages led the tour through the twisty mountain roads of the region. Although this was the shortest leg of this year’s Tour Auto the lack of highway miles and the slower speed in the mountains did not make this day much shorter than the other ones.

Germany 2 - Japan 1, no not the FIFA World Cup, but the podium for the 82nd running of the 24 Heures du Mans, when Audi triumphed for the 13th time at La Sarthe, bringing two of its three cars home in the top two positions, whilst Toyota, who had won the two opening rounds of the FIA World Endurance Championship, had to be content with 3rd overall.

Schloss Bensberg Classics … one of the few Concours d´Elegance eligible for the Louis Vuitton award at the end of the year

Today, in a time where not few think that new cars all look the same as technical and aerodynamic needs do not leave much room for designers, the prestige and public perception of the manufacturer becomes more and more important to sell cars.
