Special Guest Jacky Ickx
JACKY ICKX will be the official guest for Classic Days.
The huge career of this extraordinary driver is associated with all kinds of superlatives. A career that is amazing by its duration, its wide range and its excellence. The genius that he has always demonstrated and adapted to all different sorts of surfaces: his finesse and analysis which made an outstanding driver who shines wherever he drives…even on the sand!
The rain, inconvenient for many, has always been a way for him to create a significant difference over his opponents.
Leading from the front, and at the highest level, for many years a career in Formula 1 and a career in endurance racing, he has been at the front of the international stage, and often on the top step at major events.
And outside the sport he possesses rich, rare, human values that have made this great man special.
Driving sessions on the Grand Prix Circuit of Magny Cours are organised throughout the whole weekend of the event.
Evenly based grids will be arranged based on the type of vehicle registered (criteria selection: the year and the engine of the vehicle).
Outside these driving sessions, the vehicles will be parked in the Classic Park and the participants will be welcomed at the Classic Club.
Registration valid for 1 car * and 2 people over 2 days.
(* subject to vehicle eligibility)
AUTOSUR CLASSIC PARADE
All vehicles registered for Classic Days (Classic Park, Classic Tour and Classic Track) will be invited to participate in the parade which will take place on Sunday, April 29, on the track of the Magny-Cours Circuit. For every car taking part in the Autosur Classic Parade, the sum of €10 will be donated to the Institute for the brain and spinal cord (ICM).
EVERYONE ON TRACK FOR A GOOD CAUSE!
Record to beat: 956 vehicles on the track …
Specialist or amateur, you will be able to hunt around in the trader’s village where you can find everything you want for a classic: miniatures, books, parts, signs, maintenance, documentation, accessories…
Registration form available soon.
In the heart of the paddock, an area will be reserved for anyone wishing to exhibit their classic car.
In addition, participants will have access to the Classic Club, and the grand parade AUTOSUR CLASSIC.
It is worth noting the possibility for members of the same club to be grouped together and set up a structure to promote their club (if you have previously booked the location with the organiser). Registration valid for 1 car * and 2 people over 2 days.

The love affair between old planes and old cars will never end…
Since we first tried it, it has been impossible to think an edition of Classic Days without inviting our friends ‘Temps des Hélices’ to the meeting, to dazzle us with their of breathtaking aerobatic figures, during the big Autosur Classic Parade, Sunday lunchtime!
We are very pleased that you will witness these wonderful machines that give you goose bumps, whether for the first time or to see them again.
FREE (OF COURSE!)
A passion for cars is born very early in a child’s life and Classic Days wants to look after these future collectors.
There will be many different events for children this year.
Small replicas of the Ferrari 330 LMP2 will again be present for young drivers to learn about driving: get your children behind the wheel of these small cars on a safe circuit (free event, for under-12s)
Classic Car Toon: Hervé Poulain asked the greatest artists to decorate his cars. Classic Days appeals to children! The children’s mission is to decorate an old car with paint. Caesar had better watch out… Sweets and lollipops as a reward for all!
Bouncy castles for the little ones… and the not-so-little (free again)
Giant wooden games: games of skill, reflection… to share with the family!
Balloon sculpture and face-painting for children: an artist makes different models of hats, cars, flowers, dogs, fish… and the children leave with a souvenir gift!
Naturally, this year, it is the children who will insist on coming here to Classic Days!
