Join us on a legendary track.

Inspired by Alexandre Lamblin and designed by Raymond Jamin, the speed track at the Linas-Montlhéry motor racing venue opened in October 1924. Its 51° angled bends set the stage for over 1800 car, motorcycle and bike records. It also hosted the most prestigious races during the interwar period including the Grand Prix of the Automobile Club of France or the French Motorcycle Grand Prix.
In 1925, a road track measuring over 12km was added. This set the scene for races such as the Paris 1000 Kilometres, the Motorcycle Bol d’Or and the road cycling World Championship! The track set the scene for several prestigious records and has now been reduced to 3.5 kilometres but hasn’t held any races since 2004. We would love to welcome you to relive some great times with us here at the speed track.
