The Magny-Cours Track
+ See fullsize image
Magny-Cours just outside Nevers is the French nation's premier racing facility. Set in the pastoral region of the Nièvre, there are good road connections to the circuit, particularly from Paris. The track offers a variety of events throughout the season from historic car meetings to the World Superbike championships. See the 2011 calendar.
Until 2008 this was the home of the French Formula 1 Grand Prix, but despite huge efforts by the government, the race was withdrawn. New sites are being considered throughout France for an up-to the-minute installation in keeping with those of the likes of Bahrain and Singapore.
