Circuit HistoryEdit

Built in 1965, the original layout was 4.430 km long, but now the circuit has shortened to 4.185 km and used for French motorcycle Grand Prix.

Just after the Dunlop bridge and part way along the descent towards Tertre Rouge, the new Bugatti course turned right through a tight hairpin and ran parallel to the main course back towards the paddock village area. The then newly-constructed Musée des 24 Heures buildings necessitated the creation of a wide parabolic curve, which turned the course back through more than 180° and onto a new straight to the eastern-most point of the available land. From there another hairpin led onto a long straight with a kink in the middle - the Chemin aux Bœufs - followed by a series of S-bends and a quick pair of 90° rights which are taken as a wide hairpin, rejoining the main course just before the pits.
