Historic cars descend on Luxembourg

| 23 Sep 2014

The cobbled streets of Luxembourg were brought to life this month as the FIVA World Rally rolled into town from 18-21 September. In total, 47 crews made the journey to the Grand Duchy from across Europe to participate in the rally, which included sections along the Mosel River and in the Petit Suisse forest.

In addition to the stunning scenery, the tour also took in a visit to the Chateau de Bourscheid and a drive through the centre of the city, culminating in a display of the vehicles in the City Hall square.

One of the furthest travelled entries was a supercharged 1936 Auburn 851 that had been transported from the Canary Islands by owner Francisco Rodrigo, while Pavol Scala's 1948 Tatra 87 made the trip from Croatia.

However, Hajime Shibata and Kanda Katsushi were the most committed, bringing all the way from Japan a 1952 MG TD and 1951 Citroen Traction Avant, respectively.

The most beautiful car on the rally – as decided by the judges – was the 1948 Alfa Romeo 6C-2500SS Touring of Francesco Rossi, which was presented in very original condition. The oldest car to join the tour was a 1907 Renault, which was entered by German Wolfgang Auge.
