The motor racing circuit Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours used to be the French Formula One circuit until 2008. It is still used as a motor- and motorcycle racing venue and holds the Classic Days vintage race days
6 – 7 July 2019:
More than 600 classic racing cars will race/parade the circuit invoking the golden era of motor sport. You can get up close and admire the sleek bodies, maybe even get a ride in one of the old classics. And there will be a special exhibit from the famous Schlumpf Motor Collection in Mulhouse (68 Haut-Rhin, Grand Est). Plus all the usual paraphernalia – trade stands, souvenirs, music….
The Magny-Cours circuit is near Nevers (58 Nièvre, BFC) in Central France in the upper Loire Valley – not far from Bourges (18 Cher, Centre – Val de Loire) and Moulins (03 Allier, ARA).
