The 1000 km de Paris was one of the most renowned long-distance sports car events.
First held in 1956 at the Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry, the 1000 Km had its heyday in the Sixties.
In 1972, the event was relocated to Rouen-les-Essarts after the old circuit with its bumpy steep bends proved to be too dangerous.
In 1962 and 1964, the race was also part of the World Sports Car Championship.
In Paris, practically all the greats of their time were at the start, from Amon to Bonnier, Clark, Larrousse, Parkes, Pescarolo, Piper, the Rodríguez brothers and Trips to Vaccarella, and this crème de la crème moved the very finest equipment from makes like Ferrari, Porsche, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Aston Martin, Cobra.
Maurice Louche presents a richly illustrated book with almost 700 images, mainly from the golden era of the Paris race.
