    As a new member of this forum, I was pleased to find a Bugatti sub-forum and thought that some of you Bugatti fans might like to see some photos from the annual street raciing festival known as the Circuit des Remparts in Angouleme, in the Charente district not far from Cognac. I have been attending the event since 1994 and always find the race for GP Bugattis to be the highlight of the weekend. I hope you enjoy them.

    Although I have always been privileged enough to obtain a track pass for reporting the event, the grandstands are well-located at the various hairpins and also on the top straight while there is a an open public area on the inside of the top straight.
    These videos were shot from the public areas...

    ...and this is some good in-car film to give an idea of the circuit, and how close the racing can be

    Great photo's of the Bugatti, and have you been to the Bugatti museum at Mulhouse. There were over 400 of them there when I visited in 1982.

    Thank you, Carl. yes, I have visited Mulhouse a couple of times, the first time was soon after it had been taken over when there were just an overload of the same, or similar, models lined up. Selective editing has improved it considerably.
    A few more to be going on with from 2012
