Circuit de Haute Saintonge is a small race track, opened in June 2009 and situated in deep rural France, near Bordeaux.
The track is predominantly used for track days and testing as well as driving training. It’s a fast track, with one of the highest average speeds in France. Two 650M straights are connected by 7 corners, all with varying degrees of difficulty.
The biggest opportunity for overtaking is in to turn 2, after the longest straight on the track a very tight right handed hairpin can be found, with a short straight followed by a left handed corner. It’s very similar to the final section at the Shanghai Race Track.
