There appear to be some serious alignment issues with the Clark Bridge, which connects Missouri and Illinois. I certainly wouldn’t fancy trying to cross it! Evidently this bridge was the subject of some documentary sometime… Good shadows further down it…

Le Circuit de Reims-Gueux

First used in 1926, le Circuit de Reims-Gueux was a French Formula One and sports car racing circuit built on the public roads between the villages of Gueux and Thillois. The circuit hosted its first French Grand Prix in 1932 and continued to hold the event until 1966. The track closed for good in 1972, but the roads are still in place, and many traces of the old circuit can still be found, including the pit stalls, paddock, and spectator bleachers.
