Created in 1970 by Paul Ricard, the circuit with the same name, also known as the “Circuit du Castellet”, is a French motor track located in the south of France.
It was renovated and modernised in 2002 and will reopen to the public in 2009 with the aim of hosting once again the French Formula 1 Grand Prix, which will be done in 2018.
The oblong-shaped circuit is characterised by its long Mistral straight, initially 1.8 km long. Another feature of the track is its flatness due to its construction on a plateau, between 408 and 441 metres. With its 247 different track solutions, the mythical “Paul Ricard” meets everyone’s objectives in terms of vehicle development or training for competitions.
