UK > Reims-Gueux (France)

Post by CynicalRobot » Sun Feb 25, 2018 7:18 pm

Hi All

I am going to be heading to Reims-Gueux in France sometime between June / July this year. I haven't been before and as it is such an historical place, i really want to get a good few photos of my car parked up there and have a blast along the straight a few times. I hear the roads around that area are great too and i just fancy a little Euro trip like this in the summer.

Its around 6 Hours from London to Reims-Gueux if you factor in stopping for lunch / fuel etc.

Would anyone be interested in convoying? getting some pictures of all the cars that come together in-front of the stand?

I will admit i haven't thought it through massively yet and am in two minds on staying the night somewhere in France.

If anyone is interested in this please pop a reply in here and i can start trying to figure out the logistics :)


This is the place for those who havent seen it...

Called the Circuit de Reims-Gueux, this old road racing circuit is situated just outside the pretty village of Gueux, to the west of Reims on the Route Touristique de Champagne. The circuit saw it's heyday in the 50's and 60's with both 12 hour endurance races and 14 Formula 1 Grand Prix's. Indeed it's debut in Formula 1 was during the inaugural World Championship year in 1950. In 1954, Jaguar gained a 1,2,3 in the 12 hour race with a maiden victory for the D Type.

Depending on dates I may be interested in this, how about a couple of nights stay and visit some WW2 stuff as well ( D day, rocket bunkers etc).

That is something i would actually really like to do, my uncle sadly passed this week and he was an avid ww2 historian so i would like to go see some ww2 history myself.

Champagne also sounds good! ill have a google
