Is that… the word “SLUT” carved into the ground of Nova Scotia? On closer examination it becomes clear that the “S” is actually a tree shadow – but the remaining letters look to be formed by the shapes of three small ponds.

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.
