Of course, F1 cars completing the full La Sarthe circuit would be silly, but Formula 1 has paid a visit to the shorter Bugatti circuit, in 1967. F3000, on the other hand, effectively the GP2 of its time from 1985 to 2005, ran at the very same Bugatti circuit on a number of occasions, and in this video, from 1989, you can see so many F1 stars of the 1990s desperate to impress at the wheel of more junior machinery. There’s Eddie Irvine, Jean Alesi, JJ Lehto, Mark Blundell, Érik Comas, Martin Donnelly, Eric van de Poele and more.
