- On Saturday 23rd May Citroen enthusiasts will gather in France at the historic Linas-Montlhéry track (near Paris), at
the international gathering for the 60th anniversary of the citroen DS.
- On Sunday 24th May more than 700 Citroen DS vehicles will parade along the Champs-Élysées.
Launched in 1955, the Citroen DS is still one of the most popular French automotive icons of the 20th Century. Made
popular by its commercial success, as well as its political career, particularly with General De Gaulle, its cinematic
appearances and its sporting success, the DS made its mark on the lives of many people in France and spread French
know-how around the world.
The largest meeting of the year of original DS vehicles will be held on Saturday 23rd May at the Linas-Montlhéry race
track, attended by more than 700 cars from more than 10 countries. These cars will make the journey to Paris on Sunday
24th May to form a procession along the banks of the Seine and the Avenue des Champs-Elysées to the Place de la Concorde,
where they will remain for much of the day. This international gathering is organised by Le Monde de la DS, an
association of enthusiasts.
