Near Nevers – but the track itself is in the middle of nowhere.
How you get there: Fly to Paris and hire a car, or take an overnight ferry from Portsmouth to Le Havre for a four-hour ride at the other end. Or go to Calais and gun it down. Bank on a full day riding and watch out for cops who love to relieve Brits of hard-earned cash.

It’s a new venue for 2003. But the track and facilities should be top notch as it has been recently revamped. Camping is plentiful and Nevers is a beautiful old town that offers a decent night out. And if the title goes down to the wire, there will be a deluge of Brits riding down to see one of our boys crowned champion.
