A map of the infamous Sarthe Circuit

Circuit de la Sarthe I

Circuit de la Sarthe I is the current configuration (when it's used, since Sarthe is a non-permanent track) of the historic track located in Le Mans, France. The difference in this course is that on the Mulsanne Straight, there was the addition of 2 chicanes evenly spaced along the way. At its current configuration, the course is 13.629km long, making it one of the longest in the world along with Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany. Around 1965, a smaller but permanent circuit, the Bugatti Circuit was constructed, sharing the same pitilities, as well as the famous Dunlop Bridge and first corner.
