More than 60 classic cars and motorcycles manufactured before the 1920´s will participate in the 2017 Great Prize Recoleta-Tigre. This is an historical recreation of the first road race in Argentina, that took place in 1906 between the neighborhood of Recoleta and the suburbs of Tigre.

Before the start of the race, the vehicles will be exhibited in Recoleta on Saturday, August 26th, 2017, on Quintana Ave. between Ayacucho & Ortiz, between 1 pm and 5 pm. After the exhibition the cars will take a short tour around the area and will be garaged until the next day.

The race itself will start on Sunday, August 27th, 2017, at 9:30 am at the door of the bar La Biela (Quintana & Ortiz); from there the vehicles will take on Av. Figueroa Alcorta, Av. Del Libertador all the way through Vicente López, San Isidro, San Fernando and Tigre, taking Cazón and Paseo Victorica until arriving at Museo de Arte de Tigre. where they will remain in exhibition until 4 pm, with free entrance to the public.

The Great Prize Recoleta-Tigre is unique in South America for it´s singularity and the good state of preservation of the participating vehicles. The pilots and their companions wear the typical costumes of the time (early XXth century), making this a fun and picturesque event for adults and children along the route.
