GRAND PRIX DE L'AGE D'OR

& The Route des Grand Crus

Savour an exhilarating 7 day tour to the Grand Prix de l'Age D'Or incorporating the Route des Grands Crus, the region’s most famous wine route. The event is held on the much loved Dijon-Prenois circuit where the pits of this classic circuit have been restored to reflect the glory of this; France’s oldest historic car meeting.

This short, but challenging, circuit will push drivers to the edge of their talents and nerve, particularly with the blind La Bretelle corner, the uphill Parabolique hairpin and the never-ending very quick Pouas curve. Spectators tend to congregate at the dip to absorb the excitement of the race. This informal stadium is ideally situated only a stone’s throw from the paddocks. It is here in these paddocks that 300 cars are prepared, fine tuned and tested ahead of their races in temporary garages by dedicated crews. The best thing is that spectators can access this area and get up close to these marvellous machines. Nearby is the exhibitors’ village, where there are a range of stalls and pop up shops selling all sorts of motor related merchandise.

The Route des Grands Crus (Wine Route) is a 60 km driving route which meanders its way through eastern France, past steeple-topped churches and stone built rambling farmhouses to the birthplace of some of the greatest wines in the world. It passes through most prestigious part of Burgundy's vineyards, between Dijon and Beaune, then on to Santenay. Here, you'll discover 38 picturesque wine villages of the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The prestigious Côte de Nuits contains a string of the greatest red wines in the world, including 24 of Burgundy’s 33 grands crus (Romanée-Conti, Clos de Vougeot, Chambertin). After Corgoloin, it’s the Côte de Beaune region as far as the slopes of Maranges. The blessed land of Chardonnay produces the greatest dry white wines in the world, with Corton Charlemagne and the wines of Meursault, Montrachet.
