There's not much left from this track where Grand Prix took place a long time ago. Interesting but only for die hard race fans.

This was a spur of moment visit that I had discovered by accident online which turned out to be a really neat diversion. Even if not a race fanatic it is very interesting. My wife and daughter who are not the least bit interested in racing really liked this stop. Abandonment explorers and race fans will get a kick out... More

Whenever I'm in the area I'm drawn to this like the proverbial moth. If you are interested in motorsport this obviously is of historic interest but added to that is the way it just sits there either side of an ordinary french C road without any of the usual tourist paraphernalia that you get with attractions and sites. You just... More

The famous Reims Circuit at on the near Gueux is a short easy drive from Reims City. It is now enjoying Historic Monument status and the preservation society are working hard to restore the remaining stands. Great fun driving down the straight which is the min road leading to Gueux.

As an avid F1 fan this was not to be missed. While not a lot to see it is definitely worth the stop. We found it difficult to program the gps to find it.

I had never heard if this place until my husband asked me to see if it was still there. What an amazing place! Eerie and very atmospheric. You could almost hear the cars. I would recommend a visit to anyone who loves motor racing.

We were traveling past whilst on a petrol head/f1 holiday. We did Monza, Monaco and seemed mad not to at lease stop off for a few photos while passing. Great atmosphere and interesting look into the past
