Coming from Cournon, Gerzat, Issoire, Lempdes and Mozac, but also from Montluçon and Yzeure, the drivers will compete from 4.30 p.m. in the different categories. Namely chicks, wards, youngest, minimal, cadets, 17 years and over and “cruser”. But, also and above all, they will find a track which has not hosted competitions since 2019, Covid obliges.

And if the former elite pilot and thirty-year-old from Orcines, Willy Querel, should put on a show, local spectators will particularly follow the young Montluçonnais pilots. Namely, the minimal Lenzo Pachecon, the youngest Maxime Pelletier Gabin Vachelard and Denys Walter. As well as the chicks Arthur Cheminée and Enjy Walter.
