[p]To celebrate 70 years of the Citroen 2cv and 50 years of the Citroen Mehari. The 2cv Shop are going to race a unlikely trio of vehicles… A Citroen 2cv and Citroen Mehari from our workshop in Warminster, UK to Mehari Club Cassis in the south of France, over 1000 miles.[/p][p] Just to make it a bit more interesting we will race against the most technologically advanced car produced today… The Tesla Model X.[/p][p]It sounds like a one sided race for the Tesla however the Tesla will need to stop and charge unlike the Citroen[/p][p][b]The Race[/b][/p][p]The 3 teams will be leaving our workshop @ 8am on Saturday 6th October. Drive over 1000 miles to Cassis in the south of France. On the way we will be doing a number of challenges over the 3 days.[/p][p]You can follow the action live on the 2cv shop Facebook page.

To ensure fairness if either car is ahead of the other the car behind must wait for the recorded duration before setting off from each way point.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
