In 1964, Serge Pozzoli, Jacques Potherat and a handful of enthusiast created the ‘Coupes de l’Age d’Or’, the first meeting for historic racing cars. The event took place as a curtain-raiser to the French F1 Grand Prix on the Rouen-Les-Essarts circuit.
It was then renamed the Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or and moved to the Linas-Montlhéry track. Fifty years after its creation this historic race meeting still exists and has become one of the best-known events in France and Europe.
For the 50th anniversary of the Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or, the tenth on the Dijon-Prenois circuit in Burgundy, the event has changed hands. Peter Auto, its promoter in the 80s and 90s, is once again in charge of the destiny of this marvelous historic meeting. The company will bring to this rendezvous, the oldest on the calendar of historic events, its know-how and its different plateaus including Classic Endurance Racing, Sixties’ Endurance, Trofeo Nastro Rosso, Heritage Touring Cup – and a few big surprises!
In fact, all the right ingredients to enable the aptly-named Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or to rejuvenate itself again and again so as to envisage a glowing future.
