BRUSSELS, Belgium – The Brussels Comic Strip Festival, which runs from 2-4 September 2016 in Brussels, is organizing the journal Tintin Rally for the third year in a row. In what has become an essential weekend tradition, the race of vintage vehicles will gather nearly 80 collector cars.
This coming Sunday, 4 September, on the occasion of the Brussels Comic Strip Festival, vintage vehicles found in the journal Tintin from 1946 to 1988 will be invited to participate in the great rally. After a journey of about one hundred kilometres and a stop at the Hergé Museum, these cars will arrive in Brussels from 2:30 PM. The public will then be able to come and admire the myriad of auto bodies at Place des Palais/Paleizenplein next to Parc de Bruxelles/Warandepark where the festival of the Brussels Comic Strip Festival will be in full swing at the same time. This should be a delightful spectacle for people of all ages and interests.
Owners of vehicles or motorcycles appearing in the journal Tintin between 1946 and 1988 are asked to complete the registration form available on the Brussels Comic Strip Festival website.
Two people per car will be invited to blend in and participate in this parade and share a meal with fellow fans. At the end of the race, a panel of judges will award the prizes for the cars that best match the journal Tintin.
