Circuit du Luc

Located close to the communes of Gonfaron and Le Luc in the south of France, the circuit of the Var was built in 1965. The circuit had a difficult start, with a total loss of activity in the 1970s. However, it could count on the determination of the enthusiasts of the commune of Le Luc who created a federation in order to maintain the activity of the track as well as the outdoor activities centre which is associated there. This solidarity has enabled the circuit to restore its image and to celebrate its 50 years in 2018.

The track measures 2,200 meters, 2,400 meters with the hairpin bend, and its width varies between 7 and 9 meters. With a 530 meters long straight line, the track offers a superb possibility of acceleration to drivers who can thus give rhythm to their race and galvanise their driving. The circuit configuration allows you to create two different tracks to vary the pleasures, with a total of 9 turns. Another variant available to you is an all-terrain track of 1,000 meters. Initially used for training courses for firefighters, this track is accessible to all to discover new sensations and understand the road in a different way. Discover the world of the automobile on a circuit accredited by the National Commission for the Examination of Speed Circuits.

Exceptional events

One fact that is remarkable in the history of the Var du Luc circuit is its history with Formula 1. The Formula 1 world championship is internationally recognized as the benchmark in motor racing competition. In the 1980s, the AGS company (a former car manufacturer) used the track of the Circuit du Luc as training track of the team when this one took part in the Formula 1 world championship. Despite the team’s withdrawal from competition in the 1990s, the circuit’s enthusiasm for Formula 1 has not tarnished. The track regularly hosts F1 single-seaters for your and the driver’s viewing pleasure.

The circuits of the Var regularly host the Regional Coastal Race of the Luc organized by the French Federation of Motor Sport. This race mainly consists in crossing a route with a significant elevation gain as quickly as possible. It’s a speed test full of twists and turns that will surprise you!

Another regular race on the circuit is the Luc en Provence slalom: this is the perfect opportunity for drivers to take advantage of the different turns of the circuits and to showcase all the beauty of motorsport.
