Theo Jacobs from De Meern had a perfect holiday. He was in the French alps and witnessed the way the French car enthusiasts a ride a rally.

“Morzine, in the middle of the Port du Soleil, known for one of the largest ski areas in the world with 600 km of ski runs. In the summer the most popular place when it comes to driving. The rustic Alpine town without high-rise buildings in the middle of the mountains had been converted into the center of the 63e rally of the Montblanc, counting for the French rally championship. The exhaust noise of the participating rally vehicles turned the area into a true music festival. Because of the echoes between the enormous mountain slopes you could hear the rally cars roar from a great distance, in combination with the sound of the many cow bells, this created a special effect. Music to the ears like Vivaldi in the Verona arena. Striking was the perfect organization of the whole and the variety of rally vehicles. Of course the well-known rally cars such as the Subaru's, Renaults, Peugeots not. The modern Mini also scored well. But more interesting was the large number of classics among the participating vehicles that rode in a separate classification. It is always a pleasure to see a Renault Alpine A 110 from the seventies gracefully leaving its way behind the cow tracks. You could already hear the goose bumps sound of the old Porsche's 911 coming from a great distance. Yes, it is all possible in the Alps. A total of 430 kilometers is completed in two days, of which 228 km in special stages. In most cases on roads that are closed in winter by the snowfall. The French public was present in large numbers at the most beautiful places, often with campers and full equipment for a day of entertainment including red wine and baguette.
