Paul Ricard (Le Castellet) – Track days
The beautiful Circuit Paul Ricard, owned by Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, is situated on the plateau of Le Castellet, near Marseille. In recent years the track invested heavily in its safety and its facilities and was officially named Paul Ricard HTTT (High Tech Test Track).
The track is known for its distinctive black and blue runoff areas known as the Blue Zone; thanks to the special techniques used for these run-off areas no gravel is required, making this track ideal for all types of drivers.
The track is characterized by the 1.8 km long straight in the circuit, called the Mistral. Not only Formula 1 and the 24H of Le Mans test here annually, but the Donkervoort Racing team tested the D8 GT on this impressive race track during its participation in the GT championships as well.

Circuit training and coaching
Put simply, the feeling you have when driving your Donkervoort in a self-assured and controlled manner at speed around the circuit is fantastic. As a novice Track Day driver, you may find it reassuring – after extensive theory instruction – to drive your first circuit kilometres with an experienced Donkervoort trainer next to you. As an experienced circuit driver, you know how difficult it is to continually improve your circuit times in a controlled manner.
During the Donkervoort circuit training and coaching session, we look at essential subjects such as sitting position, pedal operation, changing gear, looking technique, steering technique, the ideal line and load shifting of the car. Just like our cars, we put together the training on the basis of your personal wishes and experience. We offer the options of private training or in a group of a maximum of three drivers.
€1190 per day on the basis of 1 driver
€595 per person per day on the basis of 2 drivers
€395 per person per day on the basis of 3 drivers
