Getting to Circuit Paul Ricard

Circuit Paul Ricard


    Following significant traffic congestion and car park access issues in 2018, the Paul Ricard circuit has advised that special measures will be put in place to make improvements for the French F1 2019 race. These will be announced in due course, once the information is confirmed.


    The circuit is located 15 km away from the village of Le Castellet, and there is no indication of a large presence of taxi companies in the area. Traffic is expected to grow near the times of the race, so long queues might form.


    Located at a comfortable distance from major cities in the South of France, it is best to access the circuit by car. If you are travelling by train, you can reach Le Castellet by train routes from Toulon (30km), Marseille (45km) and Aix-en-Provence (58km). The closest train stations are Saint-Cyr-les-Lecques-la-Cadiere, Bandol and Seyne-Six-Fours. Please be advised that Le Castellet does not have its own train station, so you may have to arrange for transport to the village and the circuit from the chosen train station separately.

    There is no indication of a large presence of taxi companies in the area. Traffic is expected to grow over the race weekend, so we recommend setting out early, or alternatively seeking accommodation as close to the circuit as possible.


    Helicopter transfers are available from a number of surrounding cities to the circuit, with the longest flight lasting only 15 minutes. More information will become available soon.


    The circuit is located about 15 km away from the center of the commune of Le Castellet. Walking there could take upwards of two hours, and routes are not always clearly marked. 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.


    There will be police cars near the circuit to help marshal traffic to the circuit.
