Jour-G 50 Years celebration in Loheac France 3-5.2014 Made by Renault Classic France


1964 the year that first ever Renault 8 Gordini has been sold in France.
1963 there was a test by Renault with Renault 8 Sport made by Renault competion and Renault 8 G made by Amede Gordini.
That test was the first time ever when G has been on Renault 8 and after that test Renault made decision to launch Renault 8 Gordini on the market :).
