More than 60 classic cars and motorcycles manufactured before the 1920´s will participate in the 2018 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 25th, 2018 at the door of Cafe La Biela, 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 26th, 2018, at 9:30 am at La Biela (Quintana & Ortiz); from where 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 from 11 am 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.
