The Grand Prix De France Historique is, like its modern counterpart, moving from Magny-Cours to the Paul Ricard circuit at Le Castellet, and this year the biennial event will take place on 10-13 June, two weeks before the Formula One GP, when the weather and the joys of Provence should be at their optimum. Designed as a festival for single-seaters, the programme includes rounds of all the popular monoposto series: Historic Formula 1, MAXX Formula, Formula Ford Historic, F3 FRenault, the Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior, HSCC Formula 2, and two grids of GP cars from the HGPCA, for pre-‘61 and pre-‘68 cars. Promoted by HVM racing, entries should be made through individual grid organisers. Other races include GT and touring cars, Lotus Trophy, as well as a round of the Masters Sports Car Championship.
