The golden age of motorsport at the Linas-Montlhéry racetrack

26 & 27 september 2015

Les Grandes Heures Automobiles - the golden age of motorsport at the Linas-Montlhéry racetrack

Step back in time to the heyday of motorsport on a legendary track!

Come along to this unique event at Linas-Montlhéry on the last weekend in September and admire a dazzling array of remarkable cars and motorbikes - classic or modern, but all absolutely authentic.

Staged this year for the first time, but intended to become an annual gathering, Les Grandes Heures Automobiles has been organised by Franz Hummel, the brains behind the Rondes Hivernales and 24 Heures de Glaces ice racing events between 1974 and 2004 and, more recently, the Week-Ends De l’Excellence events in Reims.

“We are delighted to be able to hold this new and prestigious event at the Linas-Montlhéry racetrack, this famous temple of speed and record-setting venue”, Franz enthuses. “It isn’t a competition, because there will be no time-keeping, but this prestigious setting is the finest venue you could image for such a celebration of beautiful engineering.”

The scene for all manner of amazing exploits for over a century, the venerable old track is preparing a lavish celebration to welcome the return of its former glories, cars and motorbikes, and the arrival of their most iconic descendants. Including a wide range of series, categorised by different vintages and categories, the event promises to be action-packed - and there’s even one evening session which continues until 10pm.

There are no entry fees: applications for approval by the selection committee are now open and are completely free of charge.

So come along and share this unique experience with us on 26 and 27 September!

Aventure Peugeot Festival 2015

L’Aventure Peugeot’s Association, created under the 1901 law, began life in 1982 on the initiative of Pierre Peugeot. It is a focal point for all enthusiasts of the Peugeot Brand and organises an annual meeting which its Members look forward to avidly, having an unforgettable time in England in 2014, in Germany in 2012, in Italy in 2011… These meetings are organised by L’Aventure Peugeot in conjunction with the Subsidiary and the Club of the host country.

2015 will see many anniversaries for the Brand and its enthusiasts to celebrate : the 80th anniversary of the 402, 60th of the 403, 50th of the 204, 40th of the 604, 30th of the 309… and among the 40 Clubs federated by the Association, the 40th anniversary of the Dutch Peugeot Club as well as the 25th anniversary of the Peugeot 204 & 304 Club which was behind the project we are going to present to you… In other words a lot of candles to blow out !

Living up to its dynamic reputation, L’Aventure Peugeot has decided to celebrate all these anniversaries by organising the biggest meeting of the Brand’s historic vehicles at the prestigious Montlhéry track, combined with the annual IAPM international meeting to create “L’Aventure Peugeot Festival 2015”. There has been a long tradition of Peugeot at the world-famous Linas-Montlhéry track since it opened in 1924. Many, such as the 301, the 404, the 304 and others including the most recent EX1, beat records at this track (some of these vehicles are on display at L’Aventure Peugeot’s Museum in Sochaux).

A huge programme – including many surprises – has been organised to take place at the Linas-Montlhéry track on 2 May, 2015 !

All Peugeot owners are invited to take part in this unprecedented celebration of the Brand, either as spectators or as participants.

Concours d'élégance, concept cars, competition vehicles, track parades, rides in historic vehicles, the chance to meet some of the people who have contributed to the Brand’s history, book signings and many other surprises are in store for this historic day.

Keep up to date with news of “L’Aventure Peugeot Festival” on our Facebook page, which will give you all the information you need to take part in this historic event!

The Autodrome de Linas-Montlhery, 90 years of passion. 

Who would have thought 90 years later, the dream of an ambitious industrial and businessman Alexander Lamblin, is still standing? Raymond Jamin surely, a young engineer who designed the plans, and permit the achievement in just six months. And since 2 548.24 meters and 788,400 hours ahead of the banking tray Saint Eutrope is still standing. It was therefore decided not to let down, succumbing to the wildest rumors surrounding its history. 

7 and 8 June 2014, the cars on the track record! 


An appointment not to be missed! 

If you have accrued and vehicle records aillant on Speedway: auto, motorcycle, bicycle to participate please contact us: routenoastalgie@free.fr

Réservé aux Ferrari de toutes époques


On saturday september 15 th, on a late summer’s day, you can experience the meeting of two legends – between one of the world’s oldest racetracks, Montlhery, and the most fabulous manufacturer of sports cars, which has been present in competitions for sixty years: Ferrari. 

Last year, on a sunny day, the most beautiful 8 and 12 cylinder models from all eras – from the 250 Gto to the new FF – were tested on the racetrack’s spectacular elevated curves – much to their drivers’ delight. 

This is, however, much more than a racetrack day, with a high quality reception for the whole family (children are welcome). You can also invite your friends to join you, for an exclusive automobile experience, only 25 km from Paris.   

NB: this year, we are proposing a package without laps (the scuderia pass) for those who wish to share the event’s atmosphere without going round the racetrack. Pass holders will, however, be able to take part in the parade which will bring together all the Ferraris 

for a memorable photo on the racetrack’s ring.





Welcome from 9 a.m. onwards. 

• Exhibition of the FERRARIs.

• 5 sessions of free laps, for a total of more than 2 hr  



on the 3,405 km competition track – driving on the l

egendary ring with the elevated curves.




• open-bar and grand Italian buffet next to the FERRARIs.





We also propose “corporate” packages with the reservation of a table at the Red Club House and availability of a chauffeur-driven 



FERRARI – to offer your guests an unforgettable driving experience. Please contact us if you require additional information.
