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 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.
