Parking will be available free of charge, and each parking area will have a dedicated team on-site to direct the traffic flow. Access roads to the circuit will lead you to a dedicated parking area. In order to ensure smooth flowing traffic, you will be directed to the closest parking area on arrival and will need to walk to the circuit from your parking area.

Motorcycles will have a dedicated car park, fully paved, and a walk away from the circuit. Motorcycle parking will be free of charge, and does not need to be booked. Further information on parking locations will be released closer to the event.

As each day winds to an end, in order to maximise traffic flow, traffic may be redirected to improve flow.


The circuit is located 15 km away from the village of Le Castellet, and there are limited taxi companies in the area. Traffic is expected to increase near the times of the race, so long queues might form.

If you choose to take a taxi to the circuit, a taxi drop-off point will be available adjacent to the circuit. Please note that taxis may not be able to use special access roads to the circuit, and traffic is reported to be heavy over the race weekend. We advise booking your taxi in advance and agreeing on a fixed price with the driver where possible.


The closest major French cities are Toulon (30km), Marseille (45km) and Aix-en-Provence (58km).

Le Castellet does not have a train station, and the nearest stations are Saint-Cyr-les-Lecques-la-Cadiere, Bandol and Seyne-Six-Fours. There are no confirmed public transport routes leading to the circuit from these locations. Further information will be released closer to the race.


Helicopter shuttle transfers are available from a number of surrounding cities to the circuit, with the longest flight lasting only 10 minutes. Helicopter transfers will be available shortly.


The circuit is located about 15 km from the centre of Le Castellet. There are three routes to the circuit from Le Castellet: Chemin de la Roche du Saule, Chemin de la Suffrene, and Chemin de la Massoque. However, please note that these routes can take upwards of two hours, and are not always clearly marked.
