SEE WHAT’S NEW THIS SEASON
Built in 1960 and originally the host of the famous Winfield Racing School, Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours has been a constant presence on various national and international open-wheel and GT calendars for decades. Global motorsport fans know Magny-Cours best for hosting the French Grand Prix for nearly two decades from 1991 to 2008, where Michael Schumacher became the first-ever driver to win a single Grand Prix eight times at the same circuit in 2006.
Last revised in 2003, Magny-Cours’ Grand Prix circuit currently stands at 2.741 miles. Its 17 corners begin with the gradual left-hand Grande Courbe, while other corners are named for fellow current and former Grand Prix circuits like Adelaide, Nurburgring, Estoril, and Imola. The lap finishes with the Complexe du Lycée, a hard right-hand corner followed by a right-left chicane back onto the frontstretch.
Abbottstown, PA, USA
Abbottstown, Pennsylvania’s Lincoln Speedway claims to be “Where the Action is the Attraction,” and decades of exciting feature events help it live up to that profile. Frequented by many of the best 410 Sprint Car drivers in the United States, the 3/8 mile, high-banked, clay oval has been in operation for six decades, hosting high-caliber weekly shows and multiple annual visits from the World of Outlaws alike.
Lincoln’s first season took place in 1953, with Walt Ragan taking home the inaugural track championship. Sprint car track record holders include names like Greg Hodnett, Danny Dietrich, and Donny Schatz, while families like the Dietrichs, Smiths, and Rahmers dominate the list of race winners and track champions along the way. Lincoln even hosted a handful of NASCAR races in the 1950s and 60s, with legends of stock car racing like Junior Johnson, Buck Baker, David Pearson, and Lee and Richard Petty all having taken checkered flags in the Pigeon Hills.
Sebring, FL, USA
Laid out on the runways of a World War II air base and the adjacent roadways, Sebring International Raceway is the oldest permanent road-racing circuit in the United States. It hosted its first race on New Year’s Eve, 1950, a six-hour handicap event won by a diminutive Crosley Hotshot two-seat roadster. The first “12-Hour Grand Prix of Endurance” was held two years later, and for several years Sebring was the site of America’s only real international races. In 1959 Sebring was the site of the first United States Grand Prix before the event found a permanent home at Watkins Glen. For more than 60 years the world’s top racers have competed for victory at this storied track nestled in central Florida’s orange groves.
The original racecourse was the longest in North America, at more than five miles in length. Today Sebring International Raceway has three configurations, the longest of which is the 3.7-mile circuit used for the mid-March annual 12 Hours of Sebring. Like the original layout, the current circuit features a mix of smooth asphalt-paved roadway and car-busting, tooth-rattling concrete-slab runways. Experts claim that 12 hours racing at Sebring is twice as hard on a car – and its drivers – as the 24 hours at Daytona or Le Mans. With a wide variety of types of corners, from featureless wide-open throttle, wide-radius sweepers to a tight hairpin, Sebring offers a driver a variety of cornering challenges, and its major bumps make cars dance.
