2000 Porsche 996 Carrera 4

PostPosted: Sun Sep 17, 2017 3:13 pm    Post subject: Circuit de Reims-Gueux Reply with quote

I called off at the old Circuit de Reims-Gueux en-route to St Tropez a couple of weeks ago as we were slightly ahead of time and it would've have been rude not to as we were driving right past it. When we arrived I noticed a couple of leaflets displayed so picked them up for later reading. I've scanned them for your viewing and also if anyone would like to join the A.C.G - an association set-up to restore and maintain the old circuit. I've also taken a few snaps whilst there.
Once I'd had a good look round, I had no other option but to go for a blast round the old track (well 90% of it) Drive

Anyone who doesn't know much about the place, also read here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reims-Gueux

I always used to wonder what the fuss was with the place, but took the opportunity to visit last month heading south on the way to Italy. It is one of those places where you can actually feel the history - we also stumbled upon a local Porsche meet when we were there..

Couldn't have put it better. I thought why? Then once you pull up and get out you can almost hear the cars roaring round and crowd cheering. It's a sort of euphoric nostalgic feeling. I came away truly mesmerised.

Could you resist the temptation to use the load pedal heading back past the grandstands? I know I couldn't.. Grin
