In November 1992, Eric Van de Vyver was organising his first race. He decided it should be at the Circuit Paul Ricard - unquestionably one of the greatest French racetracks - and should last 24 hours. To crown it all, the “2 Tours d’Horloge” event should be exclusively for Historic Racing Cars.
By its second year, 80 cars were crammed onto the starting grid, with others sitting motionless in their garages through lack of space. This was to be the start of a festival and the beginning of a great adventure for the V de V Racing Team, that went on to become V de V Sports. The “2 Tours d’Horloge” quickly became one of the flagship events on the French and European Historic Racing calendar.
