The 12H of Nevers Magny-Cours is for all motorbike enthusiasts and novices who want to share a unique and enjoyable experience.

THE WOMEN’S CUP
The Women’s Cup, an all-female racing championship, that brings together novice and experienced racers, returns for the 4th consecutive year to the Circuit of Nevers Magny-Cours, and is more competitive than ever !
It must be said that the FFM and the Women’s Committee chaired by Emma Clair Dumont played a strategic card by proposing a race to open the weekend of the 24 Hour motorbike race at Le Mans on the legendary Bugatti circuit. After the success of the 1st race, the Women’s Cup Trophy was launched with 3 races in 2017 and became the French Women’s Circuit Racing Championship in 2018 !
The Women’s Cup is open and accessible to all women who want to get started in competition whatever their level. Many beginners have started and have never stopped this adventure. With a magical atmosphere in the paddock and excellent help and co-operation between the participants, the Women’s Cup has become the annual meeting place for many riders.
So why not join them and become part of this big family for the 2020 edition !
