Circuit Paul Ricard is located in Le Castellet in the south of France. For all of you with private jets, you’ll be thrilled to learn there is an airport right next to the track. Those without private planes can fly into Toulon or Marseille and drive up from the coast.

One of my favourite spots to shoot from is the end of the track at turns 5 and 6. It’s also a great vantage point as you can see at least 1/3rd of the track.

If you stump up for an F1 Experiences package above pit lane, you won’t be disappointed as Paul Ricard has one of the most picturesque pit lanes with grass separating the lane from the track, similar to Silverstone.

KYM'S TIP

Head to the Bandol restaurant strip down on the coast at sunset and soak up the South of France social scene.

Accomodation-wise, the closest hotel to the track is also the most expensive, the Hotel & Spa Du Castellet. It’s just a few hundred metres from the track entrance and many of the drivers stay there. The next closest hotel is the Grand Prix Hotel about 2 kilometres from the main entrance.

There is camping a little further away but many choose to stay on the coast and wear the sometimes lengthy drive up the mountain. I’ve stayed in the pretty coastal towns of Bandol and Sanary-sur-Mer but will wear the longer commute to Marseille this year as the city offers better accommodation options.
