The circuit Reims-Gueux was a Grand Prix motor racing road course, located in Gueux, 7.5 km west of Reims in the Champagne region of north-eastern France. It was established in 1926 as the second venue of the Grand Prix de la Marne. The triangular layout of public roads formed three sectors between the villages of Thillois and Gueux over the La Garenne/Gueux intersection of Route nationale 31. The circuit became known to be among the fastest of the era for its two long straights (each approximately 2.2 km in length) allowing maximum straight-line speed, resulting in many famous slipstream battles. Located in the heart of Champagne country, around 140km northwest of Paris is easily reached by car andis close to the A4 motorway from Paris to Strasbourg. More
