Under the aegis of the FFSA, it seemed only natural and necessary to create a 100% international historic event, the idea of innovating by articulating it around the great hours of the single-seater was an evidence… as was the decision to turn to HVM Racing, our developer on the Historic Tour, to define the sporting contours and the content, and to the direction of the Circuit of Nevers Magny-Cours for to welcome HVM Racing as our organising partner in optimal conditions. Magny-Cours, having hosted the Grand Prix of France F1 up until 2008, has the legitimacy and shares, with us, a same ambition to make this event a « revival » show of international stature. To all the enthusiasts, the collectors,- we wish to offer a veritable popular weekend, during which they will have the pleasure to discover or to rediscover the cars of legend and to join in the celebration. »
