UTAC Autodrome de Linas-Montlhery Montlhery F-91310 France Tel: +33 69011047 Fax: +33 69801704 Track Length: 2.116 miles Located 16 miles SW of Paris.First built in 1924 as a Raymond Jamin designed 1.55 mile banked oval, the 7.767 mile road course was completed for the 1925 French GP, in which Antonio Ascari was unfortunately killed. It became France's pre-war leading venue, but facing German Grand Prix domination during the '30s by Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union, the organisers decided to switch to Sports Car racing for 1936 and 1937. It was not popular, and in 1938 the track lost the race to Reims, never to regain it.
Between 1948 and 1950, a 4.7 mile variant of the track was used, followed by a combined road and track circuit of 3.9 miles in 1952. For 1956, a 4.826 mile circuit was built for the Paris 1000km races, but an accident in 1964 left two drivers and three officials dead. The circuit declined, and was closed in 1973. The current circuit was built in 1982, and International racing returned in 1994 with a revived Paris 1000km for International GT racing.
