Europe is the cradle of motorsport. The world's first-ever motor race took place on 20 April 1887 in Saint James in Paris. Driving a steam-powered De Dion-Bouton-Trepardoux tricycle, Georges Bouton won the race from Paris to Versailles, setting a speed record of 26 km/h. Although we do list this circuit, we offer a wide selection of circuits where speeds well in excess of 26 km/h may be attained.
