Ecuyers

Nestling in the gently rolling wooded countryside about 30 miles to the NE of Paris is the picturesque Circuit des Ecuyers. The nearest town is Chateau Thierry, some 4 kms to the South West. The setting within the substantial grounds of a private estate, which includes an equestrian centre, is tranquil and sheltered by surrounding dense woodland. Facilities are brand new and well appointed with a hospitality room for guests including wcs.

The track has a good variety of corners, mainly taken in third gear but with a couple of quick 4th gear corners thrown in for good measure. The circuit designer has managed to achieve an interesting and challenging mix of corners aided by the varying gradients of the sloping site. There are some unusual cambers and the odd minor bump to catch out the unwary. Run off is generous and the trees are far away.

A perfect track day facility in an unspoilt part of northern France within easy reach of Calais and close to the Champagne region. Well worth a visit.
