This looks like a great event and one I would dearly love to attend even if I do live on the opposite side of the world.

Will this be on again or was it a once only ?

Victor, I really can't answer that one. I sincerely hope they don't wait another 110 years before doing it again! To be honest I had not heard of Historally before, but they certainly know how to run a prestige event , and since they have copied my report onto their website (apologies, Chris!) I presume I shall be on the mailing list in the future. :)

Well done Ian !!

This should bring more (english) visitors on Chris' site since the 'Read More...' is a redirection to your article at Scimitar France 8)

Enjoyed the article very much and hope to join you on the next edition - whenever it may take place -

Cheers,
Fred

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

As a foretaste of the 2017 edition , here's one of the best videos taken at last years Montée Historique International du Ballon d'Alsace:



Its on-board a Viper GTS-R . He really gets to grips with it on the third run, until a slight coming-together with a Peugeot punctured two tyres!
This year's dates : August 11-12-13, the National Holiday weekend over here.
