Pau has a truly unique atmosphere during the Historic Grand Prix race weekend and the whole town comes alive up for the event. As race circuits go, very few can offer such a breath taking atmosphere with such beautiful countryside and stunning mountain panoramas as a back drop. 

This charming and characterful circuit is a must for any fan of historic racing and the Pau circuit layout has not changed since 1933.

If you would like to extend your trip, Pau's southern location in France makes it a great stopping off point for a longer European road trip. The mountain roads of the Pyrenees and Andorra are only a short drive away offering some truly spectacular scenery. 

Just call us to tailor-make the perfect 2022 Pau Historic Grand Prix holiday!



3 or 4 nights by Car 

Our 2021 Pau Historic Grand Prix tours are based on Dover to Calais crossings, departing on Friday or Saturday and returning on the Tuesday. If you prefer, we can reserve Eurotunnel crossings from Folkestone to Calais or the longer cross channel routes with Brittany Ferries. Alternative crossings and on board accommodation will incur supplements and you will be advised of the full cost before you confirm your booking with us. The longer crossings, particularly the overnight sailings, are extremely popular and we recommend you book early to secure your space.
