The annual Geneva International Motor Show has a unique appeal that ensures that manufacturers always bring their A-game to the Palexpo exhibition center.

As reported at Ultimatecarpage.com

These manufacturers range from high volume producers of the likes of Toyota and Volkswagen to specialist companies and design houses like Koenigsegg, Pininfarina and Giugiaro. With the latter an eye-catching display is virtually guaranteed, which forces the mainstream manufacturers to really make an effort in order not to be completely overlooked.

Introduction
Now in its fourth year, the annual Dix Mille Tours (Ten Thousand Laps) meeting at the Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track has quickly become the traditional season finale for the Peter Auto Racing events. All of the major race classes organised by event host Patrick Peter were on track again this year, including the Sixties’ Endurance, Trofeo Nastro Rosso and two Classis Endurance Racing groups.

They were complemented in 2013 by the Mini Classic & Touring Cup, Group C and a revival of the BPR Championship organised by Peter along with Stephane Ratel and Jurgen Barth between 1994 and 1996. As a result, the 2013 Dix Mille Tours saw sports racing cars from the early 1950s through to the 1990s take to the high speed track on the French Mediterranean coast. In addition to the races, the track was also opened to clubs during the lunch-breaks, while in the paddock various specialist vendors welcomed competitors and spectators alike.

Making New History
In its original guise, the Goodwood Motor Circuit was in operation between 1948 and 1966. The circuit was re-opened in 1998 for the annual Goodwood Revival Meeting and we are just a few years away before Goodwood’s second coming will be longer than the track’s first. While today the competitors don’t race for price money or championship points, some still take it very seriously, preparing for the event like it was a modern day Grand Prix.
