Circuit de Haute Saintonge is a small race track, situated in deep rural France, not too far from Bordeaux. It’s a track which opened in June 2009, with the aim of bringing Motorsport to the region. The track is predominantly used for testing, as well as driving training and track days.
It’s a fast track, with one of the highest average speeds in France. Two 650M straights are connected by 7 corners, all with varying degrees of difficulty. The biggest opportunity for overtaking is in to turn 2, after the longest straight on the track a very tight right handed hairpin can be found, with a short straight followed by a left handed corner. It’s very similar to the final section at the Shanghai Race Track. They also have a 1600M Kart track.
Facilities at the track are excellent as to be expected from a rural French track – they’ve got two farmhouses to house all guests as well as providing accommodation.
