The 13th Traversée de Paris (Summer Crossing of Paris) will take place on Sunday August 30, bringing together 600 vehicles (cars, motorbikes, light utility vehicles, tractors, omnibuses, etc.) of all makes and from all periods to drive through the streets of the French capital.
Organized byVincennes en Anciennes, the largest multi-marque club in France, the event twice a year (Winter & Summer) provides an excellent opportunity for mechanical enthusiasts to drive together through the streets of Paris and enjoy a picnic and makeshift car show at the end.
The Crossing commences from the esplanade of the Château de Vincennes and, after a journey of some 30 kilometers, concludes on the Terrace of the Observatory at Meudon, an American military camp, where the cars will be on display and attendees will be able to enjoy a giant picnic.
This year, vintage buses will join the Traversée de Paris from Vincennes to Meudon and will be available to take passengers along the rally route, for those unable to bring a vehicle. Booking is mandatory and the number of seats is limited (10€ per person). The itinerary of the Crossing is an unpublished secret until just before the start, but the organizers promise the route will provide a number of surprises for participants.
