Do you remember the 500 Nocturnes?


Do you remember these cars braving the night on 500 km on the fastest roads of Alsace?

Since its establishment in 1967 until 1997, the 500 Nocturnes have thrilled the automobile lovers in Alsace and far beyond.

Every time there was a race, another driver, faster than the others, would win this duel against the night. The event has been opened to GT since its beginning: as such, the 500 Nocturnes have witnessed Alpine, Porsche or even Audi win many races.

And then, as it turned 30, the race faded out, and the night took its revenge.

For 19 years, not a single car has come to face it. And yet, the night never suspected that a meeting one day in 2014 would change everything: a meeting between three automobile lovers and businessmen who decided to bring the legend back to life.
