HOME » Magazine » » » Season Opener – GP de France Historique

Entries are now open for the Grand Prix de France Historique, which takes place on 19-21 April with a focus on single seat categories.  The Masters Racing Legends F1 cars will be topping the bill that also includes the opening rounds of the new HVM-HSCC Interseries for historic F2 cars and the Classic F3 Interseries for cars up to 1984.  GT cars and prototypes of a more recent era are not forgotten, with the Masters Endurance Legends for cars up to 2017 and  a race for recent Ferrari GT cars coming from the Ferrari Club Deutschland.  One of the most popular, and populated, series in France, the Trophée Lotus will also be opening its season at Paul Ricard.  With increasing interest in endurance racing, HVM will stage the 200km of the GPFH, a one and a half hour race for GT, sports and prototypes up to 2000.  Entries are open for all of these races.

Added to this is a programme of activities to include parades of more recent F1 cars, displays and track sessions for club cars, vendors’ village, celebrity appearances and other activities to attract a large crowd of spectators (last year 52,000).
