Come! Drive to the Tintin rally
Once again this year, Moulinsart is joining forces with the Comics Festival to whisk visitors away into the world of our favourite little reporter. More than 60 classic cars and bikes featured in the Tintin stories will be on show on Sunday 7 September. The theme will be like last year, the Journal Tintin . The rally will be setting off on a journey around some of the comic book highlights of Brussels, taking in the Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve as well. The vehicles will end up in the Place des Palais, where they will stay for the rest of the day so that members of the public can take the opportunity to admire them.
There are still places available so if you own a vehicle that was featured in Tintin’s adventures between 1946 and 1993, you still have time to apply to take part in the rally. Given the huge success of the first rally, this year more than 60 vehicles are due to take part in the event. At the end of the race, a panel of judges from Moulinsart will award the prizes for the cars that best match Hergé’s drawings.
If the file is accepted, the car and two people will be invited to participate in this free wonderful adventure! However, if an applicant can demonstrate that his vehicle – which does not appear in the list – has appeared in the newspaper, he will also be entitled to submit an application. It must indicate: the year of publication, the number of the newspaper and the page bearing his car or his bike.
Rally leaves Brussels at 9am (exact location to be confirmed). The rally will follow a route of about 100km from Brussels (D’Ieteren Gallery) in Brussels, and will step Hergé Museum in Louvain-la-Neuve. From 2.30pm – 6pm, there would be a car exhibition in the Place des Palais and judging by the panel. Entry to the rally is absolutely free. A must for all die hard TinTin fans.
