Where and when

Start and arrival are located at the glamorous Promenade des Anglais in Nice.


The race pays tribute to the Niçois driver Jean Behra, a French Formula One driver who raced for Gordini, Maserati, BRM, Ferrari and Porsche teams throughout his career. Although he never won any Formula One championship races, he did win the non-title 1952 Reims Grand Prix, and was considered a formidable competitor until his death in 1959, when he crashed his Porsche whilst driving in a race that preceded that year's German Grand Prix. He had three funerals, one in Berlin, one in Paris and the final one in Nice where over 3,000 mourners lined the streets, and this is where his body was laid to rest.
