  • Various activities, there are for everyone, little ones alike. It is proposed a restaurant with view on the "Grand price Burger" circuit which offers dishes fast food types.

  • Magical weekend. A circuit just beautiful and well maintained. Unforgettable experience. With good security and a good home.

  • One of the most beautiful circuits of France, if this is the most beautiful. But what shame to find that of the Sub food, dear by the "tropezienne tart" company that has a monopoly on the circuit with his restaurant pompously called "Grand Prize burger". Nothing is good: neither hotdogs which bread is of poor quality and industrial sausage without any taste. I do not speak of mobbed up Sir, burgers, fries and sodas all hyper bad health. More to do the great tail long. The top of the junk food... Machine profitability, the monopoly does not really promote quality. For everything else this circuit is magical and worth... but plan your picnic basket...

  • My experience at the track - Very colourful and a fun drive. Good to see it return next F1 season.
  • Awesome! One of best tracks I've had the pleasure of riding at. Fantastic helpful staff and a sublime restraunt. Merci. #EYBIS
  • We took the tour and loved it. Very personal experience
  • A must for the petrol head, if you get chance to ride this place on two wheels don't pass the opportunity. An amazing circuit in a beautiful setting. Food and drink a little pricy but the norm for these type of venues!!!
  • Historical and mythical race track and without any doubt one of the fastest track in France. For that reason, every biker or sport car driver should have experienced speeds largely above 300 km per hour (185 mph). Facilities are not anymore at the very top of other international tracks but remain very good. BUT here are some drawbacks to be conscious of in order not to be surprised: 1) depending on the track configuration, if only the small loop is opened, you could reach 300km/h but not so much more (if the whole track is opened, prepare to... take off! ;). Then check the track configuration the day you practice it. 2) Apart from the 2 thrilling looooong straight lines, the rest of the track is totally BORING! You only appreciate the time it provides you to rest on your bike ;) 3) last and least, the area is very windy, especially in summer, and can make it very sporty and even really dangerous, especially for motorbikes... ANYWAY, apart from these real drawbacks (mainly the last one), if you want to ride in France, on a mythical track, you MUST ride the Circuit Paul Ricard, also called 'Le Castellet' (name of the small town it belongs too). For a better stay, avoid all tasteless hotels and prefer one of the numerous Air BnB places! The area is gorgeous. Trust the people that decided to build their own house at the right place... ;)
