I saw this mentioned on YTCC site. Never having been to spectate at Dijon before, I am thinking of going - but there's also the YTCC visit to Charade - another circuit I haven't visited. Which would you say is best?

Bonjour, Malcom Smith! Thanks for the question which almost killed me in the morning…*
Dijon is a long track, traditional, ex F1 so almost familiar for an enthusiast having seen many pics or vids before. Its rather easy to walk inside the track to change the point of view.
Charade is another story because its only a portion of the original track, twisty, walking around is almost impossible, you've to find a spot to see several curves at a glance.
Around Dijon, if you like wine…*Around Charade if you like volcanos…
You will meet more english at Dijon, this meeting is more international than national but dont expect any chance with the weather forecast in October!
And if you like an answer à la Mike Bell to your question, could be something like: why would you go to France?

For photo opportunities and good spectator viewing/access, it has to be Dijon. Great area of a France as well, with superb food and wine.....

And from experience seems rain can be any month!

You mean any time may be… I'm too a gran son of farmers, they say "c'est bon pour les salades et pour les vignes!" Les vins de Bourgogne sont excellents et maintenant certains Beaujolais sont fantastiques. Forget about the poor marketing done around beaujolais nouveau, please.

No, its not OT if we add that during a Motors Cup! Malcolm can speak english in any part of the paddock. And spot great cars and watch good racing. A good place to start with, is inside the Courbe de Pouas leading to the long straight.
Easier to find a convenient hôtel room in Prenois area too…

Mike-The-Boss asked for more info. The grids:
Colmore YTCC, Legends Cars Cup, HSCC International Historic F2, Triumph Competition & British HTGT, FIA Lurani Trophy Formula Juniors, State of Art NK GT&TC '66-81, HSCC Thundersport, F3 Classics Interseries and MAXX Formula.
Interesting at Dijon, is the vey long straight allowing the big dogs to reach around 300 kph (185 mph)…
Right, Boss?

Thanks Gerard! I appreciate your comments about the circuits. I've now looked at YouTube videos - perhaps I should visit both.

All sounds great, although I heard about the rain - last October's meeting, when YTCC visited, looks like monsoon conditions.

Sounds like a plan! A visit to any of the Old / Classic French Circuits is worth doing......

Just in case its impossible to make up your mind between those two, you can go to Circuit Bugatti mid October. Same organisation, but less foreign/intersting grids. Historic racing in the UK and in France sound almost the same but is "slightly" different. A little bit like Hawaï and Haïti!
Love this one, Boss?

You mean about Hawaï vahinés methinks? I know its a nice joke, well hope so… Its not that I recommend to any British, Scottish or Irish competitor to come in France, any time any track, but if I can help the venue to be a better experience I'll try my best.
