Retro-Fact  The original Tour de France, now known as Tour Auto Optic 2000, first ran way back in 1899. Starting from Paris, the race incorporated seven rally-style stages via Nancy - Aix les Baines - Vichy - Perigueux - Nantes - Cabourg before finishing back in Paris. This first edition was won by Rene de Knyff driving a Panhard et Levassor, and only 21 of the 49 cars finished. The race, last run in 1986, was revived as a historic event in 1992.
