Dijon | Place des Cordeliers
Dijon is known for its mustard, and for the ex-F1 track "Dijon-Prenois", located in the peripheral Prenois.
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.
