And last but hardly least, Daimler-Chrysler France provided pace cars. Most importantly, as the Coupes Moto Legende has grown from strength to strength over its 10-year history, so too has grown its ability to attract and involve some of the most illustrious roadracers in the world, including a number of world champions. The Coupes has become something of an annual reunion for 15-time World Champion Giacomo Agostini and eight-time World Champion Phil Read. In previous years they have shared the track and the social scene with racing legends such as Jim Redman, Christian Sarron, Barry Sheene, Luigi Taveri and Walter Villa. Naturally enough, French racing greats from the GP and world endurance racing are also well represented--Balde, Alain Genoud, Rene Guili, Hubert Rigal and Eric Saul, to name just a few. Notable additions in '02 to the racing alumni list were Yvon Duhamel, Jack Findlay, Sammy Miller, Chas Mortimer and--to the delight of absolutely everyone--Kenny Roberts.
