Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or

8th – 12th June 2017

The Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or is one of the longest surviving races in France. Currently it is held at the historic Dijon Prenois race track. Our tour offers an overnight in Champagne via a photo stop at the old pit buildings in Reims. We have researched superb driving roads into Burgundy for two nights amongst some of the finest wine producing vines in France.

We take the Eurotunnel into France and our route takes us via the Reims pit buildings for a photo opportunity. Our hotel is a short distance from Reims, we will offer welcome aperatifs here before dinner in the hotel’s restaurant.

Friday 9th June

We have plotted an attractive cross country route into Burgundy. Along the way we have a suggested coffee and lunch stop. Our hotel for the next three nights is situated on the route des Grand Vins. This evening we walk into the village for dinner at a local restaurant.

Saturday 10th June

This morning we take a pleasant drive over the hills to the Dijon-Prenois circuit to watch the historic racing taking place. It is a superb circuit with lots of history. Parade laps of the circuit are included today. During the afternoon we visit a fascinating chateau situated just north of Beaune, which houses an amazing collection of fighter planes and Abarth cars amongst other vehicles of interest, we will round off the visit with a tasting of the wines produced by the chateau.

We return to the circuit today to enjoy the racing, more parade laps are possible for those that wish to do them. We have organised a trackside picnic lunch amongst our cars whilst enjoying the racing. This evening we will be served a typical Burgundian dinner at the hotel, with accompanying wines.
