LOOK will be the main partner of the 24hr LOOK Magny-Cours event on June 7th, 8th, 9th 2014. Hundreds of cyclists will ride around the clock during this new cyclosportive, open to teams or single competitors.

The Magny-Cours racetrack, where some of the greatest races in motorsport have taken place, will be a perfect setting for unforgettable memories. Riders will enjoy facilities used by some of Formula 1's greatest drivers such as Mansell, Prost, Schumacher, Hill, Alonso, Raikkonen and Massa. 

During 24 hours - individually or as a team of 2 to 8 riders - athletes will compete day and night on a fully secured track, with perfect surfacing and exceptional infrastructures. Those competing in teams will take turns, with changeovers taking place in the F1 pits. The whole event will be timed using the racetrack system and transmitted live on screens in each stand.

"It is hoped everyone will leave Magny-Cours with unforgettable memories," said Gael Mainard, 24hr LOOK Magny-Cours Race Director. 

Serge Saulnier, racetrack President had the following to say: "The whole team at the Nevers Magny-Cours racetrack is happy and eager to welcome the 24hr LOOK's first edition. In 2014, with the creation of this event and a stage arrival of Paris-Nice on March 11th, Magny-Cours goes down in cycling history. Be part of it too, come and ride with us in June."
