France R10 - Magny-Cours Circuit, France
Magny-Cours Circuit overview
Magny-Cours WSS Circuit

Magny-Cours staged one World Superbike race in 1991 but has hosted regular, end-of-season events since 2003. It was where James Toseland won the championship for Honda in 2007 and Andrew Pitt secured the company’s seventh successive World Supersport title in 2008.

 

The 4.411km circuit features nine left-hand turns and eleven rights, including one of the tightest hairpins at any international circuit, Adelaide, at the end of the ultra-fast back straight.
Magny-Cours is 10km south of Nevers and three hours drive from Paris.
