Smell of burnt rubber

The circuit Reims-Gueux was a Grand Prix motor racing road course
located in Gueux, west of Reims in the Champagne region – established in 1926.
The almost 8 km long circuit placed with start/finish line on public road.
The last year for Formula One at Reims came in 1966,
the final sports car competitions were held in 1969,
motorcycle racing continued for another 3 years.
In 1972, Reims-Gueux closed permanently due to financial difficulties.
In 1997 a historic race was cancelled for technical reasons.
So in 2002, the bulldozers arrived to demolish some portions of the track.
A few sections of the old buildings are still visible today around the pit lane.

The smell of burnt rubber almost gone.
