By inviting the former Grand Prix cars of the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association – HGPCA to join its usual national championship grid, the Historic Tour of Charade was imbued with a special flavor. At the Circuit de Charade, a motorsport race track in Saint-Genès champanelle near Clermont-Ferrand, France, we had not welcomed such sacred monsters for a long time! … and this continues into the next day of the weekend too. This is after a long gap of 42-years since the last time Formula 1 cars officially raced on the circuit from a time when Sir Jackie Stewart in his Tyrell-Ford crossed the finish line a full 24 seconds ahead of Emerson Fittipadi’s Lotus. All this while names like Chris Amon (who also shattered the circuit record), Ronnie Peterson and Mike Hailwood Followed.
