  • Hello I took an internship at GT drive, GREAT! I loved it, a unique experience to live with relatives, for all ages. I am doing an internship with the Porsche GT3 RS at the Driving Center track at the Paul Ricard circuit. Great sensation with of course the monitor that accompanies us and gives us valuable advice. On arrival a very welcome, a briefing before you start and let's see the cars. All this to say that GT Drive is a unique experience, I recommend it!

  • 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... ;)
  • Mecca for the Bol d'Or. First visit 1979, last there 2016. Says it all.
  • We've been a couple of times to watch racing and its been excellent. The facilities are well laid out and have everything you need, there are lots of excellent vantage points positioned around the course and its been well run in terms of organisation on race days.
  • Very nice high speed circuit. Too wide for my liking but very forgiving. Windy region.
  • Very nice setup and interesting place to visit. Plenty of entertainment for children.
