Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or
9-11 JUNE 2017
The 53rd Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or, which took place last weekend on the Dijon-Prenois circuit, fulfilled all its promise starting with ideal weather conditions that helped attract a large crowd.
This year 15 000 people flocked to the meeting continuing the progressive increase in spectators, a reward for the organiser Peter Auto for the numerous improvements made to the event since the company took it over again in 2014. The Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or, the oldest race of its kind in Europe in the domain of historic competitions, offered an action-packed programme with ten grids and 16 races retracing the history of motor sport from post-war single-seaters to the Group C Racing cars of the 1980s, which left their mark on the history of the Le Mans 24 Hours, as well as the GTs with a grid of almost 60 entrants in Sixties’ Endurance, touring cars, Formule 2 Classic and Formula Junior. A total of almost 300 cars were present including the most recent GTs in the Global Endurance Legends Series that carried out several on-track demonstrations. [complete report here]
