Exceptional vintage cars on the roads of Creuse: the Virad’a is finally back!

After a five-year break, the Virad’a d’Evaux-les-Bains, a tourist rally of prestigious and vintage sports cars dating from before 1965, returns this Thursday for its 25th edition.

Created by former automotive journalist Jean-Marie Mayet in 1996, the Virad’a made its return after five years of interruption due to the health crisis. This unmissable event for car enthusiasts is celebrating its 25th edition this year.
The Virad’a, which means “ride” in Combrailles dialect, is a tourist rally of prestige and old sports cars dating from before 1965, more recent cars not being accepted. The organizers have been preparing this event for more than six months. Its aim is to promote the landscapes and gastronomy of Creuse as well as the neighboring departments while bringing together car collectors from different countries.
For the moment, more than twenty vehicles have registered to participate in this ride which will last four days.
