    Amazing photos of old tracks!

    Found this website packed with great photos of old and closed cirquits around the world.
    Some of them are now regular roads, others have just been left as they were some 40-50 years ago. Truly amazing pictorials IMO.
    Enjoy!

    Hehehe...I've been out trying to make a living..and enjoying a few kms in my Boxey
    Summer night, empty roads, dry tarmac, twisted turns and the rag down. What else can you ask for?

    Re: Amazing photos of old tracks!

    excellent find sir

    Re: Amazing photos of old tracks!

    Jesus, that picture reminds about last summer. Had arranged a long weekend for the boys in the champagne area and on the way to Golf de Reims, a very nice golfcourse outside Reims, we drive on this road where there all of a sudden is a tribune. Somewhat strange to see things fall apart like this..

    Nice find Doggy...

    Michael,

    If you go through with your plan, the old Solitude circuit - which was in operation until maybe the mid-60s (?) - is just a few kilometres from the Porsche factory.

    If I remember correctly, the last of the pitlane buildings at the start/finish line got knocked down to make room for road-widening just a very few years ago.
