    Circuit Paul Ricard has been released!
    Get it on the RaceRoom Store now
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------





    This track was originally built in 1969 at Le Castellet, near Marseille in France, but has since then been rebuilt into an advanced test track, which earned it its todays name:

    Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track (Paul Ricard HTTT)

    [​IMG]

    The track is known for its distinctive red and blue runoff areas known as the Blue/Red Zone.

    [​IMG]

    An aircraft landing strip suitable for private jets is amongst the circuit's facilities

    [​IMG]

    The track is also unusual in that it is built on a plateau, and is very flat.

    [​IMG]

    The track is characterised by its long Mistral straight (1.8 km) and elongated track design.

    [​IMG]

    Its flexibility and mild winter weather mean that it is used for testing by several motorsport teams.


    Paul Ricard is coming to RaceRoom very soon!

    It will include 4 Layouts:

    1A (F1 Test)
    1C-2V (BES, WEC)
    3C (WTCC)
    2A-short

    That question also belongs to the "how soon ?" complex, so you're forgiven :)
    @S3 First pic appeared like a photo to me ....outstanding as always..
    Remember the billboards all around Avignon in the late seventies when making holidays in South France...

    Love the track! :hearteyes: Kinda compare it to Silverstone :confused: flat with very challenging fast corners and then some very slow parts as well..

    Very nice!

    They edited in the layouts after my question so I think I was entitled to ask:)
    Got my answer before S3 made that edit (checking the track folder).

    Wonderful, an awesome track!!
    And S3S are making such great jobs with the tracks, even better than iRacing and AC's laser scanned counterparts!

    France have some really good ones, truly hope that we will see Dijon-Prenois and Magny-Cours in R3E as well some day!!


    Oh, and also a big thank you S3S for the 250 Vrp I just received for a DTM competition at Hungaroring!! :)

    The 1c WEC version would be great for Multiclass ALMS/LMES style racing...remember very well the last combo of turns before start/finish straight from GTR 2...can make you mad...:)

    I am really pleased to see Paul Ricard in R3E as this is one of my favourite tracks in AC.
