A cool, abandoned grand prix race track in France – frozen in time

I’ve covered abandoned Olympic venues and ones that were repurposed but here we have an abandoned grand prix race track that looks frozen in time.

According to The Tim Traveller, Circuit de Reims-Gueux hosted the F1 French Grand Prix 11 times between 1950 and 1966 but closed six years later. The grandstands and pit lane remain intact which is remarkable considering the state many venues fall into after decades of abandonment. Tim travelled to Reims to investigate how it has stayed in such good condition.
