Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or
6thÂ – 10th June 2019
In 2019 the 55th running of the Grand Prix de lâ€™Age dâ€™Or will take place at Dijon-Prenois. Since 2014 it has been held at this circuit, which is famous for hosting the French Grand Prix between 1974 to 1988. At that time the GP alternated each year between Dijon and Paul Ricard. The history of the lâ€™Age dâ€™Or (Golden Age) dates back to 1964 when it was held on the Rouen-les-Essarts circuit. In 1969 it was then hosted at the famous banked MontlhĂ©ry circuit just south of Paris, the event remained there until it moved to Dijon.
Expect to see Endurance race cars, sports cars, touring cars and Formula 2 single seaters. As well as the amazing 2.0 litre cup Porsche 911 SWB series, which has risen to huge success, through its first season in 2018. Another hugely popular series is the Global Endurance Legends where you can see 90â€™s Le Mans cars flat out around this undulating French circuit.
