Circuit Paul Ricard has announced it is planning its own Formula 1 revival festival at June’s French Grand Prix.
Over 70 historic F1 cars will be at the event, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Paul Ricard circuit and the 70th season of F1 competition.
Amongst the collection will be such cars from Ferrari, Shadow, Larrousse, Ligier, Brabham, March, Renault, Tyrrell, Williams, Benetton, McLaren and Toyota and many more.
A 3,000 square metre paddock will be set up with over 70 cars in attendance and access will be open to the public during the weekend.
Planned demonstration runs with over 40 of the cars are also set to take place on the circuit. A series of runs in two separate classes will also take place with cars from the 1950s-1980s in one class and the other with cars from the 1980s until the 2000s.
With the FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships not providing support races for the weekend, alternative support events for the F1 weekend have been added with the Renault Clio Cup and Alpine Elf Europa Cup.
Eric Boullier, Managing Director of the GIP Grand Prix de France – Le Castellet: “I am delighted with the creation of this “F1 Revival” paddock and these demonstrations at the next French Formula 1 Grand Prix.
“This show will be a real moment of intergenerational sharing on the occasion of the celebration of the various anniversaries that will mark our Grand Prix.”
