All about the Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or (Dijon) 8-10 June 2018.

The Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or, one of the oldest race meetings in France, was was held at Dijon Prenois for the 5th time in 2017. It was a resounding success with a record number of spectators enjoying the hot sunshine.

Dijon will always be remembered as the venue for one of most thrilling F1 battles, when Gilles Villeneve and Rene Arnoux fought wheel to wheel in the final laps of the 1979 race. You can relive the sights, sounds and smells of that era by attending this excellent classic racing festival.

One ticket gives access to all areas of the circuit, including the atmospheric paddock where you can watch the cars being prepared while talking to their drivers and mechanics.

This year you are able to choose between a fabulous family run hotel in the small town of Saulieu where you can savour wonderful food and enjoy their extensive wine list, or a more modern hotel in Dijon.

All of our tours are flexible so please let us know if you have specific requirements. A popular option is to continue east from Dijon to the Schlumpf collection at the Cité de l’Automobile museum in Mulhouse, before spending some time on the sublime roads in the Vosges Mountains and Black Forest.

The Parade Laps are not a track day but helmets are mandatory for all drivers and passengers taking part. More information about the Parade Laps is available here.
