Lédenon
Description Circuit under construction for one year by Jean Claude Bondurand; inauguration should be within summer 1972.
Please note an interesting 15% uphill just before main straight. Anticlockwise direction is to be confirmed.
Target was to host F.2, F.3 races and events for young drivers.
Initial proposal has been changed, as some hairpins were canceled. Definitive circuit, opened in 1973, is quite different from these proposals.

Lédenon
Description Original proposal was changed in February 1972 by FFSA. After some problems were solved, works restarted in MArch 1973 and the circuit was inaugurated on June 17th 1973. This circuit is intended for car and motorbike races, tests and driving schools.
Autosprint article shows Croix-en-Ternoix map, probably because of a mistake (thanks to Stephan Zeidler for having reported it to me). For this reason, I dopn’t know what was the exact track layout at inauguration.
