Angoulême plans 30th celebrations



The 30th anniversary of the revived Circuit des Remparts at Angoulême will run on Sunday September 21 with a day of racing on the tight street circuit in the historic French town.

The circuit remains unchanged since it was first used in 1939 and then brought back into use in 1978.

Seven races will be topped by the annual contest for pre-war GP Bugattis, while other races are for MG T-types, vintage cars and 1950s-60s sports cars. There will also be demo runs, with several Matras and an F1 Tyrrell promised.
