Dear Fellow Enthusiasts
What better way to commemorate this enormous event than to confirm that the first hillclimb sprint in the North-East of France was on the 5th August 1906 - and to bring it back to life?
On this very same piece of road - albeit more gravelled and a lot narrower -gathered 50 c hauffeurs as they were called in those days,including three major car builders: Ettore Bugatti, Emile Mathis, and the Baron de Turckheim who was the head of Lorraine-Dietrich Automobiles.
One brave lady was accepted , a Miss Perigault,daugfhter of the President of the A.S.A Vosgien, the organising club.
The start at the heart of St.Maurice sur Moselle and the finish 9kms later remain practically the same.
Historally and the whole region of the Hautes Vosges will be pleased to welcome you to St.Maurice sur Moselle on the 9-10-11 of August 2019 for this 4th Edition of the MHIBA.
May 16th 2019- three months from today it will all be over, bar the grins and great memories!
There is less than a month left to get your entries in , the deadline is June 15th.
We have already passed the 100 mark for entries in the hillclimb, and we have 14 confirmed for the Rallye , with several dossiers being treated today.
So don't hesitate much longer! The magnificent Vosges mountains look glorious in the green of Spring, and the local hostelleries are waiting to welcome you.
