Reims-Gueux History
 

Reims-Gueux (1926?1951) or Reims (1952?1972) was a triangular motor racing road course near Reims, France, which hosted 14 French Grands Prix.

Reims-Gueux was first established in 1926 on the public roads between the small French villages of Thillois and Gueux. The circuit had two very long straights between the towns, and teams strove to maximize straight-line speed of their cars; many slipstream battles ensued. Race organizers actually felled trees and demolished old houses in order to make the circuit even quicker.
