Circuit Des Remparts

It’s not just Monaco that transforms itself annually into a road racing heaven: the city of Angouleme is also transformed each year at the International Circuit des Remparts. One of the only cities in Europe to do so. Brands of legend: Aston Martin, MG, Bugatti, Porsche, and Lotus feature. Since 1939, this street circuit hosts competitors from all countries, who come to compete with their cars loaded with history. Unchanged since its inception, the layout of the circuit takes drivers through the heart of the old town. Concours d’Elegance, an exhibition of luxury cars and the tourist rally in the Charente countryside complement the program of these three holy days of the automobile.

This is not just a tootle around the city walls in a nice motor car, this is real racing through the streets, loud, brash and full throttle. A spectacular couple of days not to be missed.
