VALENCIENNES-DIJON ® is an international 3-day GT Drive Out ® for sports car owners and their partners, where Road Tour driving and GP track driving, as well as international networking during apero and delicious meals - in a unique setting - are combined.
In total we drive 650 to 700 km of beautiful, winding roads; spread over the first two days.
The third day we drive on the ex-F1 GP circuit of Dijon Prenois.
It is not a competition. Experiencing beautiful moments together with like-minded people - passionate sports car enthusiasts - is key.

All necessary information before departure is e-mailed two weeks in advance to the participating teams (= drivers and co-drivers).
During the event, a briefing about the next day is given every evening, and all information about it is still mailed - immediately after the briefing - to all participants.
VALENCIENNES-DIJON 2020 starts on Saturday 29 August.
From 9.30 all participants are expected at a unique location in Valenciennes that will be disclosed at a later stage.
After the arrival, welcome and first introduction, we continue with some administrative formalities.
Each participating team will then receive a goodie bag with a digital roadbook, rally plate, number stickers and refreshments and drinks for the road.
Immediately afterwards there is time for everyone to prepare the cars: applying the rally plate and number stickers, followed by installing and setting up the digital roadbook.
Then it's time for our extensive brunch during which everyone can get to know each other. Once we notice that everyone is slowly but surely satisfied, we start the briefing about the course of the remaining day.
At noon we will start our 340 km road tour, with an interval of 45 seconds between each participating car.
After a passage through the old town of Laon, a stopover on the historic circuit of Reims-Gueux, and driving along part of the "Route touristique du Champagne", we head for our first overnight stay.
After a refreshing shower, we enjoy a nice apero together, followed by a gourmet multi-course menu.
We start the second day with a delicious breakfast at a unique location with a view of the water.
Then we start the day’s road tour for 300 km.
Before we meet again for an aperitif and dinner, we stop for lunch, and - shortly before the end of the tour - for a visit to a very special location that can leave no one unmoved.
After two already unforgettable days, it is now time for the icing on the cake: 5 sessions of 20 minutes on the legendary circuit of Dijon Prenois!
This ex-F1 circuit became world famous in 1979 when the whole world could witness on TV a heroic battle between the regretted Gilles Villeneuve with his Ferrari, and the local matador René Arnoux with his Renault.
We provide helmets for those who did not bring their own.
After the mandatory safety briefing, our first driving session on the circuit starts at 10 am.
Before we start the second session of the morning, we first have a very interesting visit of the circuit’s race control center.
We will lunch together again at a nice location 15 minutes' drive from the circuit. This route is also breathtaking and offers maximum driving pleasure!
In the afternoon we drive another 3 sessions of 20 minutes on the circuit, before we finish in the WHEELTORQUE pitbox with a reception with bubbly and other refreshments.
The participation price per sports car with driver is 1.890 € including VAT.
For 490 € you can click on the "co-driver" option during your booking.
Apart from fuel, everything is included:
If you select the "co-driver" option, there is a choice between a room with a large double bed or two single beds during your booking.
