FIA Grade 1 Circuit
The French government proposed a new national Formula One Grand Prix circuit on an 85 hectare site in Les Mureaux, Yvelines, approximately 1 hour by car or train, north west of Paris. The site was ideally located to attract a high density of spectators and provided a unique setting for the proposed new home of the French Grand Prix and for French motorsport. The department of Yvelines is home to much of the French automotive industry, with a significant Renault facility situated adjacent to the project site.
Apex provided circuit design and master planning services, with Wilmotte architects in Paris and with Ridge and Partners and URS Scott Wilson in the UK on what was a challenging site location in terms of environmental constraints.
