Track | History

The ex-GP track of Dijon Prenois exists since 1972.

Between 1974 and 1984 the Grand Prix of France Formula 1 has been hosted 5 times by the track of Dijon Prenois.
The winners were: Ronnie Peterson from Sweden (1974), the American world champion Mario Andretti (1977), the Frenchman Jean-Pierre Jabouille (1979), the French quadruple world champion Alain Prost (1981) and the Austrian triple world champion Niki Lauda (1984).

Also the Grand Prix Formula 1 from Switzerland has been organized twice at Dijon Prenois.
Those have been won by the Swiss Clay Regazzoni (1975) and the Finnish world champion Keke Rosberg (1982), father of Nico Rosberg, who became world champion in 2016, 34 years after his father.

The track became world famous in 1979, due to the heroic battle - for second place during the Grand Prix of France - between the Canadian Gilles Villeneuve - father of Jacques Villeneuve, who became world champion in 1997 - and the Frenchman René Arnoux.

The lay-out of the track has been unchanged during all those years, which is unique.
Meanwhile, the surface has of course been renewed several times, the overall security has been improved, and the infrastructure has been modernized.

Background information

  • The Dijon Prenois circuit has made major investments in their infrastructure in recent years: including a new asphalt layer on the entire circuit, partly new buildings, new pitboxes, a new asphalt layer over the entire paddock, etc.
  • Unfortunately, oil stains were regularly found in the paddock
  • The management of the circuit has therefore compulsorily introduced the environmental mat, since 2020

Practical

  • Not mandatory IN the pitboxes
  • MANDATORY to place an ENVIRONMENTAL MAT in the entire paddock under your motorcycle
  • Exception = street-legal motorcycles (with lights, winkers, number plate, etc.) that have not been transported to the circuit, but have come to the circuit by public road while driving

CHAT BOX

We have created a second Whatsapp Group - which we call from now on the "CHAT BOX" - in which all participants can post.

This group is mainly intended to ask each other questions (and give each other answers) about a spare part you need, a certain INFO that you cannot find on the website (even if it is indeed there ;-), etc.

There will be no official information or communication posted in this Group.

The organisation is not a member of this groupo and will therefore not answer any questions.

It is not necessary to join this group, but it can be fun and sometimes even useful. You can leave this group at all times.
