In 1997, an agreement was reached; an agreement with the leaders of the Hippodrome de Dreux: Rallycross de Dreux reborn! Over the years, it became clear that the site was no longer suited to d'exigences criteria spectators, placed too far from the track. In addition, Home capacity remained limited.
