Called at the circuit one evening as we were on a motoring holiday through France. Really interesting to view the old buildings. Some free leaflets were available, which gave you the history of the track.

What a stunning historic venue, small, unspoilt, untouched as history left it. My partner wanted to visit and what looked like a quick trip turned into the perfect backdrop for car pictures. Just fascinating to see. A must for racing fans.

Highly recommend a trip to the deserted circuit if you are in the area or if you have an interest in historic motor racing. Plenty of access to the old pits and stands and drive in the tracks of champions!

Although the circuit has not run for many years, it's still a good place to visit, as the Pits and the main strait seating Stands are still standing, along with other out buildings.

This is a must for motorsports fans. The preserved remains of a famous old auto race course. By the 1950's most street-race courses were closed due to the dangers involved. Since there is little development in the immediate area, it is easy to get the...More

This is a great little stop off if you’re in the area, every thing is from bygone days and you can imagine the cars coming past at speed in the days it was in use, worth a visit.

It’s approx 170 miles from Eurotunnel just outside Reims. It isn’t on a direct route to Euro Disney - it’s about 70 miles or just over one hour to Mickey
