The Motor Sports Association TRISKELION and the Hellenic Historic Car Club (ELIA) organize for the 8th consecutive year in the Peloponnese the Historic Car race called “Tour du Péloponnèse” from 3 to 21 October.
The Tour du Péloponnèse, is a Regularity race that offers fans of the classic car a driving feast of 1000 kilometers, excellent Peloponnesian routes and the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful areas of Greece.
