On this page concerning the 2nd edition of this rally, the headline was 'a rally of regularity, full of future'. But, it took 7 years to participate in the 3rd edition, on 25 and 26 March 2006.
The welcome of the city of Creon was so good that the new edition took place at the bastide of the Entre-Deux-Mers a new time.

Jetsimi team, in which we find Franck and Ludovic, has created a superb rally.
For the occasion Vincent had to us preted his superb 8 Renault Gordini 1100, more accustomed to the tracks as the roads of the Entre-Deux-Mers area, near Bordeaux. Our tests reinforced the idea that this car was a good choice. Enter a crew of 200 Kg, Sylvain and me, each 1.93m told, was not the easiest.

Later, we also learned that we were the only crew to have correctly pointing! We were the first!

After a meal, made in the hall of Creon, we took the road from 21h00 to a new stage of a hundred km between Creon and Rauzan for a new back on Creon.

Magic of special night, or complicity between pilot and co-pilot needed, crossing yellow headlights on the vines ...

But, after a meeting nightly with the tide on this roadway third stage (without comment), having problem with 3 Bugatti, we stopped voluntarily and end our journey in order not to create disputes between the organization and the policeman.

On Sunday morning, the last special of one hundred Miles led the crews from Créon to Haux.

Too sad that this issue will be completed so soon! We will attend next year!
