Tintin Rally will be back for third year

Tintin RallyThe Tintin Magazine Rally: The must-see of the Brussels Comic Strip Festival is back! The Brussels Comic Strip Festival, which runs from 4-6 September 2015, is organising the Tintin Rally for the third year in a row. In what has become an essential weekend tradition, the race involving dozens of vintage vehicles will try to expand this year to an unprecedented field of more than 80 collector cars.

This coming Sunday, 6 September, on the occasion of the Brussels Comic Strip Festival, vintage vehicles found in Tintin Magazine from 1946 to 1988 will be invited to participate in the great Tintin Rally. After a journey of about one hundred kilometres and a stop at the Hergé Museum, these cars seemingly driven straight off the pages of Tintin Magazine will arrive in Brussels from 2:00 PM. The public will then be able to come and admire the myriad of auto bodies at Place des Palais/Paleizenplein next to Brussels Park where the festival of the Brussels Comic Strip Festival will be in full swing at the same time. This should be a delightful spectacle for people of all ages and interests.

Owners of vehicles or motorcycles appearing in Tintin Magazine’s weekly editions between 1946 and 1988 can register in order to bring together the greatest number ever at the Tintin Rally.

Two people per car will be invited to blend in and participate in this parade and share a meal with fellow fans. At the end of the race, a panel of judges will award the prizes for the cars that best match the Tintin Magazine’s drawings.
