RACE OVERVIEW

French Grand Prix In the early part of the last century, race organizers did not believe in permanent or short circuits. The worlds very first Grand Prix (Big Prize) was the French Grand Prix. Having started close to Le Mans it was a 64 mile lap that wound its way through farmland, forests, along planked bridges, streams and villages. The first Grand Prix was a 12 lap race that lasted 2 days.

The race was held in several different cities throughout France into the 1920`s and then 7 permanent circuits were constructed post WWII. Tracks that include Magny Cours, Paul Ricard, Diijon, Le Mans Bugatti, Circuit Clermont-Ferrand, Reims, Rouen give France the largest collection of great F1 circuits in Europe.

Pastis magnet Paul Ricard built and financed the circuit in 1969 as the safest F1 track in the world. Perched high in the mountains on the beautiful Côte d`Azur near the town of Le Castellet, the Circuit Paul Ricard hosts the French Grand Prix again in 2018. The Ricard track is known for its 1.8 km straight named after the Mistral winds which blow across the track at certain times of the year. It is a flat track with an elongated shape and has hosted 14 French F1 Grands Prix since 1971. Jackie Stewart won the first French Grand Prix.

The circuit is surrounded by blue/black tungsten and asphalt runoff area instead of the usual gravel traps, to help the cars stop quickly. It has many configurations including a private airport and has sense been rebuilt as a test track by the Excelis Company in 1999. It was also used for Motor Bike, and Sports Car racing.
