World Superbike at Magny-Cours

September 30 - October 2, 2011 in Nevers, France

Superbike FIM World Championship

Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours

The Nevers Magny-Cours circuit is the property of the Conseil Général de la Nièvre (regional council) since 1986 and is located 12kms South West of Nevers in the Burgundy region.

Track homologated by the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) B Grade

Length: 4,411 m
Pole position: right
Grid position for endurance racing: left

The track nowadays is a modern, smooth circuit with good facilities for the teams and spectators which locates 250 km (160miles) from Paris in central France.[6] Unusually, many corners are modelled on famous turns from other circuits, and are named after those circuits, e.g. the fast Estoril corner and the Adelaide hairpin. It has a mix of slow hairpins and high-speed chicane sections which includes a long fast straight into the first-gear Adelaide hairpin, the best overtaking opportunity on the circuit.[7] The circuit is very flat with negligible change in elevation (only a small valley at the Estoril corner and a slight hill near the Lycee corner) and doesn't provide tremendous overtaking opportunities, despite modifications.
