24 October 2013 - Défi Media Group
Vintage cars back on the road. The Classic 7th Tour of Mauritius, organized by the Vintage & Classic Car Owners' Association, will be held Sunday, October 27. This annual appointment will see the participation of new imported cars recently.
Every year, the show of the old cars is eagerly awaited. And this year, it is in the west of the country as members of the Vintage & Classic Car Owners Association wanted to go. The appointment is made for this Sunday, October 27.
Considered high mass vintage cars, leaving Sunday include two exhibitions. The first will take place in parking lot Iframac Phoenix Les Halles between 9 and 10 hours, while the second will be held in Cascavelle Shopping Village, 11 to 13 hours. "However, for those who can not get to these two exhibitions, we propose to stay home and see the cars paraded in front of their doors from 13 hours," says Christophe Leroux, president of the association.
Indeed, those living in the western region will see a parade of cars. "We will take the road to go to Cascavelle Albion, through Bamboo and Gros Cailloux. Those who live in these areas will parade in front of them, "said the latter.
The public will discover the new car collection that some members come to acquire. "Since the new budgetary measures, classic car enthusiasts have many advantages and have been able to enjoy for buying new cars," said Christophe Leroux. We thus find a Rolls Royce, a Volvo, Citroen and Austin.
For the president of the association, these measures are encouraging for the members. "We now have collectors who leave their cars in the garage plus a regular basis and it is also a good thing to raise awareness of the automotive heritage to young people," points out Christophe Leroux.
The struggle continues for the association. Currently, members of the Vintage & Classic Car Owners' Association have requested the authorities to the cars built before 1975 can be considered vintage. "Until now, it is only those built before 1969 that are considered vintage and not after," said Christophe Leroux.
