Courses de lévriers whippets
Championnat de France 2012
Les lévriers portent un dossard et une muselière obligatoire pour éviter les morsures quand ils se jettent sur le leurre à l'arrivée .
Les whippets ,la plus petite race de lévriers courent à une vitesse de 50-60km/h et les greyhounds à 70_80km/h
Les Barzoï, sloughis ,lévriers afghans n'ont pas assez de concurrents en France

Cynodrome de Soissons (northern France - Picardie)
