The Circuit d'Albi, also known as the Circuit des Planques, is one of France's classic circuits. It is situated in the south west of the country in the commune of Le Séquestre near Albi, approximately 80 kilometres north east of Toulouse. It was originally opened as a nine-kilometre street circuit in 1930.
The Grand Prix d'Albi (for cars) was first staged in 1933, and continues to attract large numbers of competitors and spectators. Motorcycle racing at the circuit has an equally strong tradition, with Albi hosting the motorcycle world championship in 1951, while the French Superbike is currently a regular visit to the circuit. In celebration of its 80th birthday in 2009 the circuit was thoroughly modernised and resurfaced.
