A unique experience

With its past and its generous curves, Charade is the circuit privileged by the Classic Racing School. Legendary track, it is ideal for the 60's atmosphere, and offers a real journey in time. That's why we chose to install our Historic Driving School, using all the vintage's codes, and by arranging several paddocks in an elegant and very 60's - 70's atmosphere. The drivers of the day are welcomed in the retro atmosphere of a warm Lounge. Enjoy a unique experience in Charade, where the historic racing car is combined with an authentic and vintage lifestyle.

An iconic racing track

At the end of the Second World War, « a real mountain circuit is missing in France » regrets the quadruple world champion Louis Rosier. The idea made its way, so that on July 27th 1958, at the foot of the Puy-de-Dôme among the extinct volcanoes, is inaugurated the mountain circuit of Charade. Qualified as the most beautiful circuit in the world by Sir Stirling Moss or more recently Alain Prost, dozens of races including 4 Grand Prix of France Formula 1 between 1965 and 1972 would follow with Jackie Stewart, Jim Clark, Jean- Pierre Beltoise, Jacky Ickx … True monument of motorsport, the Charade circuit remains one of the few places that has preserved all the essence and richness of its historical heritage. As a witness of the golden age of racing, it will delight every nostalgic.
