Supported by SUZUKI Switzerland
Open for all motorcycle brands!
The practical guidelines on this page can still be changed.
So be sure to check it again shortly before the event !
This page can be found at all times on the menu-button "Practical" on our website.
TIP: click at the bottom of this page on "printer friendly version", print it and bring it to the event.
VERY IMPORTANT: be sure to have your "European Health Insurance Card" (EHIC) with you. By showing this card, people know that - in the domain of health (and accident) insurance - you are completely covered in your own country, and that every country of the European Union has to give you all the care you need.
If you have never applied for this card at your health insurance, ask for it:
- if you wouldn't receive it in time, ask them to mail to you a "Preliminary proof in replacement of the European Health Insurance Card" (= 1 page, and this can be done immediately);
At all insurance companies, you can ask for a list of the "Dangerous sports" that are excluded from any intervention "urgent care abroad". In general, "car / motorcycle / outboard motor races" are part of this list. But as we don't "race", our activity is not excluded from any intervention. Check your insurance if this is correct, and if not, be sure to be insured (for possible hospitalisation costs).
If you have a license of your national motorcycle council to race on a circuit, be sure to bring it.

- Brakes, tires, oil leaks on crankcase and front fork
- Noise : basically, a race muffler is allowed. Nevertheless, take your dB-killer or original exhaust (if you still have it). Noise is more and more becoming an issue and officially, at Magny-Cours, 102dB is mentioned since two years.
Equipment : moto boots, leather gloves, good fitted full face helmet, back protector and leather suit (one-piece recommended) are mandatory. If the leather suit is a two-piece, then both pieces must be firmly zipped together.
