French Round ROUND 07 09 - 11 SEP

Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, Magny-Cours, France

The Magny-Cours circuit first appeared on the WorldSBK calendar for a single year in 1991 but since 2003 has been a regular fixture, as the series makes the journey each season to the 90,000 capacity venue near the towns of Magny-Cours and Nevers, some 250km (160 miles) to the south of Paris. The championship has also briefly visited both Paul Ricard and Le Mans, whilst riders such as Regis Laconi, Sebastien Gimbert and Raymond Roche have represented France in WorldSBK, with the latter winning the 1990 title.

Why we love France and Magny-Cours

This beautiful, modern European republic has centuries of romantic history and is a land of sophisticated cities, miles of fantastic coastline, epic mountain ranges, excellent cuisine and huge areas of picturesque countryside. France has a unqiue charm and leaves an impression on any visitor.

Paris is a chic and dominant capital city which enchants millions of tourists each year with its fine cafes, wide tree-lined boulevards, the Arc de Triomphe, the River Seine, the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées and the trendy designer boutiques of the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

Magny Cours sits in the Nièvre department of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region of central France. This newly named region came into existence in January 2016 after the territorial reform of French Regions and covers a considerable 48,000 km2 area, inhabited by more than 2.8 million people.
