Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry

l’Autodrome de Montlhéry

We don’t usually cover inactive tracks, but seeing as this track has been used recently, we thought we would add it! The Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry is a race track south of Paris in France. Opening in 1924, the track was designed to house the fastest cars of the time. At just over 2.5KM long it was no where near as long as the Brooklands track in the UK, but did not have the noise restrictions which the British circuit had. As well as the oval, there is also a large road course layout which is again very high speed. Soon the track had a huge number of visitors who came to set world records and go as fast as they could, with over 100 records set in 2 months. In 1925 it held the French Grand Prix, and then held it several times over the next fifteen years. The last racing certification was acheived in 2001, but racing has not taken place since. It has now become extremely run down, but in 2010 the profile of the track increased dramatically, due to the filming of Gymkhana 3, an infomercial with Ken Block for DC Shoes.
