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.
