There is some room around the paddock, although I can't think of any grass.
I still love this track. It is ( In my humble opinion) better than any other track we drive (have driven) on ! It has all the "good" bits of the Nordschleife ( fast bends, slow bends , HILLS !) & is a "normal lap" so you can build up your rythmn, confidence & speed ! Everytime I drive here I have to think of the 1979 Grand Prix driven here where René Arnoux & Gilles Villeneuve drove for lap after lap next each other Banging wheels. They finished 2nd & 3rd in the race & both said it was a great race. I can't imagine any F1 drivers doing that nowadays !
The paddock area is completely tarmacked. There are ample water & electricty outlets.
BUT I am no too impressed with the Paddock facilities. Time for modernisation & investment I feel.
There are some great spectating areas here and there are usually some great races on at this event.
The max. permitted towing speed with a trailor in France is 130 KM/H on a motorway, 110 KM/H on a dual carraige, 90 KM/H on "normal" roads & 50 Km/H in built up areas.
Motorway & Dual carraige speeds are reduced by 20 KM/H if it is raining /wet
There is NO LEADED petrol in France. But LRP is available.
LRP is usually in Blue pumps & is called "Super".(it contains Pottasium additives)
Unleaded is "Sans Plomb" usually followed by the Octane rating 95 = Super in UK, 98 = Super Plus in UK.
Fuel prices are MUCH higher on Motorways
Be careful when trying to pay with credit cards.
A lot of French petrol stations expect your credit card to have a chip in it & Non-chipped cards will not be accepted/recognised.
This is especially true of the supermarkets, where the fuel is cheapest.
You can pay any motorway charges with a "normal" credit card (I always do).
