Dijon, 30th of April, 2019
The Tour Auto Optic 2ooo cavalcade left the lights of the capital in
the early hours of the morning on its way to the Vaux-le-Vicomte
château for the official start of the 28th staging of the rally. On the
first day’s programme was a 400-km leg with a special stage in
the morning followed by a trip to the Dijon-Prenois circuit in the
afternoon after which the cars went to the Dijon parc-fermé
installed in front of the town’s Palais de Sports.
Thus, the morning was marked by the first special stage of the
2019 event. The three competition grids were the first to arrive at
the timed start in Sens (Yonne) to do battle against the clock.
They were followed by the two regularity fields in the late morning.
