All about the Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or (Dijon) 5-7 June 2020.

The Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or, one of the oldest race meetings in France, is an excellent event. It is an ideal destination for a long weekend in France or it can easily form part of an extended tour.

This is one of our favourite events; despite its history it is relatively unknown in the UK and the twisty sections of the Dijon Prenois circuit are guaranteed to create exciting racing. Being located in Burgundy surrounded by lovely countryside full of vineyards is an added bonus!

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.

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.

Attending this event is not only about the action at the circuit because you will also be able to explore the world famous vineyards on the Route des Grands Crus and visit the FIA Heritage Museum at Chateau Savigny-les-Beaune.

All of our tours are flexible so we can also create a bespoke tour to this event for you. 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.


Parade Laps

Experience this thrilling undulating circuit yourself by taking your own car onto the track during the 20 minute Parade Lap sessions available throughout the weekend.

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