Circuits des Remparts
Enjoy a nostalgic tour to the pretty hill top town of Angoulême for the historic Circuit des Remparts where, every year in September, the town fills with racing enthusiasts who throng to see the weekend long event which sees classic cars thrashing around the ancient and twisting roads in the heart of the town itself!
This event is a must for fans of vintage cars. The international Circuit des Remparts turns Angoulême into a giant museum on wheels where old-timers and classic cars make fans dreams come true for three days. Modern safety equipment has replaced the hay bales and wooden fences, but otherwise the circuit remains unchanged since the first Circuit des Remparts race in 1939. The event, which finds its route through the centre of the town, occurs in the third weekend of September each year.
Angoulême, a historic hill side town, perches majestically over the Charente River. The old town has been faithfully restored and is now a hub for bars and restaurants along the narrow pedestrian streets. The Cathedral dates from the 12th century and, when there’s no racing, you can walk all around the ramparts and look down over Angoulême and surrounding countryside.
