20 years of success for Renault Magnum: Episode 2

The second highpoint in the celebration of the Magnum's 20 years of success will be the Le Mans 24 Hour Truck Race. During the final legs of the European Truck Racing Championship and French Cup, Magnum will be having quite a party! There will be a retrospective area, looking back at its 20 years of success and the legend it has created. This will be the point of departure for a travelling exhibition. Furthermore, to accompany this final popular event of the season, Renault Trucks has drawn up an "unmissable" programme of festivities. There will be serious presentations and fun events, for old and young, for the family and for all Magnum fan drivers - in other words, something for everyone! So don't miss out, be at Le Mans on 8 and 9 October!  

Those who missed the 20 year Magnum celebrations at Magny-Cours have another chance to catch up on this great event. For the five generations of Magnum will be heading for Le Mans to go on display there during the 24 Hour Truck Race on 8 and 9 October.  Visitors will also be able to see the star-spangled Magnum which travelled along Route 66 as well as the Magnums which won awards at Magny-Cours for being the best looking decorated Magnum. One of them received the Manufacturer's Trophy and the other won the Public Prize. These eight vehicles will be opening the truck parade during the race meeting.

The festivities will take place under the watchful eye of the "Be part of the legend" decorated Magnum which was also on show at Magny-Cours. In view of the success enjoyed by the retrospective show during this previous leg of the Truck Racing French Cup event, Renault Trucks decided to bring it back. There will therefore be another opportunity of seeing the major developments and stages of the Magnum's history. And once the Grand Prix is over, this travelling exhibition will go on a tour, calling in on Renault Trucks dealerships all over France.

The 50 drivers present at Magny-Cours are to be presented with a "Be part of the legend" sticker kit. This will enable them to announce their membership of the "Magnum community" and the pride they have in driving this vehicle. As for the members of the TruckDriver Club, they will have an opportunity to lunch with the Aravi team, sponsored by Renault Trucks for this season.
The weekend will also be marked by many events including a pyrotechnic display to light up the Magnums, cheerleading shows at regular intervals, goody handouts and more…

The next stage in these celebrations for the 20 years of the Magnum's success will be at Solutrans from 29 November to 3 December 2011 at the Lyon Eurexpo exhibition park.
