The 20th winter running of the Traversée de Paris (Crossing of Paris) will take place on Sunday January 12th, bringing together 700 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 by Vincennes en Anciennes, the largest multi-marque club in France, this annual event is about to celebrate a key milestone: the 20th Traversée de Paris in winter.
20 years, 20 arrondissements, 20 iconic Parisian monuments, this is how the organizers conceived the journey of this year’s Traversée. The rally will go through some arrondissements where the Traversée has never been before.
“The Traversée de Paris is not only about honoring vintage cars, it is also about admiring the beauty, the richness and the architectural diversity of the capital city. Our participants are not only Parisians, they like discovering or rediscovering the iconic monuments: Panthéon, Hôtel de Ville, Institut de France, Tour Eiffel, Opéra Garnier or Bastille will be in the program. For the first time, the Traversée de Paris will go through a few centuries of history,” says Jacques d’Andréa, President of Vincennes en Anciennes.
