While Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton were deciding which of them would be the best at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monaco, a less speedy, but no less respectable car race took place in Moscow - the LUC Chopard Classic Car Rally. For the 14th year, the Swiss jewelery manufactory has been gathering connoisseurs of high-value mechanics (this category includes both rare examples of the automotive industry and precious Chopard chronometers) for a retrocar competition named after a special watch collection. The event, which is personally attended by Chopard co-president Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, an avid collector of vintage cars, is attended by world-class racers. The transport itself deserves special attention: among the crews of the rally in different years you can find a real rarity - for example, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III, owned by Jacqueline Kennedy,or Mercedes-Benz by Vladimir Vysotsky. Among the 57 cars that appeared at the show this time, the most venerable age were two: the Renault EF and the Mercedes Benz 22/50 Faeton of 1914.

Traditionally, the rally participants take a start from the Central Department Store and, overcoming a number of checkpoints, finish at Barvikha Luxury Village, where a rich program has been prepared for them and the audience. The winners of the competition received chronometers from the LUC collection, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year (on this occasion, the head chef of AVENUE restaurant David Desso delighted the audience with a huge cake). We did not forget to reward the most stylish crews. The rest of the participants of the race had a chance to discuss mechanics and how to study collectible items, and their companions - to walk summer outfits and get acquainted with jewelry novelties.
