Circuit type: FIA Grade 1
Length: 4.4 km
The French government proposed a new national Formula One Grand Prix circuit on an 85 Hectare site in Les Mureaux, Yvelines, approximately 1 hour by car or train, north west of Paris. The site was ideally located to attract a high density of spectators and provided a unique setting for the proposed new home of the French Grand Prix and for French motorsport. The department of Yvelines is home to much of the French automotive industry, with a significant Renault facility situated adjacent to the project site.
