Circuit Nevers Magny Cours
Having visited the two new circuits of Most (CZE) and Navarra (ESP), the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team is returning to familiar territory this weekend. From 3rd to 5th September, the eighth round of the FIM Superbike World Championship 2021 will take place at ‘Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours’ in the heart of France. The team and riders Tom Sykes (GBR) and Michael der Mark (NED) already know the circuit very well from the WorldSBK.
Magny-Cours lies around 250 kilometres south of Paris, the French capital, and has been a fixture on the WorldSBK calendar for nearly 20 years. A world championship race took place there for the first time in 1991 and WorldSBK has visited Magny-Cours each year since 2003. The combination of fast corners with long, straight sections and tight hairpin bends makes for a challenging track layout.
