Bernie’s Nevers Nevers Land: Let’s hope the 2008 French Grand Prix was not the last serving at Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours. Despite the fact track is located in cow country, Bernie is hopeful he can milk more money by staging a race in Paris or Panmunjon. Track has hosted the French Grand Prix since 1991 when Nigel Mansell triumphed in a Renault powered Williams. Renault had won the first ever Grand Prix race in 1906 and the 100th. anniversary race in 2006 was won by Michael Schumacher in his Ferrari, marking his eighth triumph at this circuit.
