Here are some photos from our day out at the 75th Circuit des Remparts in Angouleme. We dropped Mum and Dad at the station, as they are off to Bordeaux for a few days, left the car in the outskirts and cycled up the hill to the ramparts. After battling the crowds we squeezed into a cafe for a late morning coffee, found somewhere to park the bikes and set off to explore our first ever visit to race day at the Circuit des Remparts. We didn't have grandstand tickets, but there was still plenty to see, hear and smell and we spent a lovely afternoon wandering around in what can only be described as petrol head heaven.
