The history of the Croix en Ternois circuit

It was in the early 1970s that automobile enthusiasts decided to create the Croix-en-Ternois automobile circuit in the Pas-de-Calais region.

The inauguration of the complex took place in May 1973 with a star race bringing together the best French drivers.

At the same time, a first pilot school was created.

* From 1973 to 1977The Croix en Ternois circuit is the scene of a large number of motor sport events (motorcycle racing) and the circuit is the first in France to join the European Formula 3 championship.

* Since 1980the creation of the A.S.A (Association Sportive Automobile) of the Circuit de Croix en Ternois, with the aim of developing motor sport under the supervision of the French Motor Sport Federation, allows the circuit to host official motor races.

* In 1996, in 1996the GRIFFITH'S team is in charge of setting up a Formula 3 team to train future Formula 1 drivers. The circuit then makes its driving school available to all, with the help of RENAULT and FORD. All these actions enabled the Croix-en-Ternois circuit to acquire a regional, national and even international reputation.

* In July 1999Patrick d'Aubreby becomes the new owner of the circuit's infrastructure. Known for his entrepreneurial skills (Director of Brasseurs de Gayant in Douai) but also as a Formula 3 driver (participation in the French F3 B championship from 1996 to 1999), he launched a project to refurbish the track to facilitate overtaking: two curves will be widened allowing the best drivers to express themselves

* In 2001, in 2001the creation of the A.S.M. (Association Sportive Motocycliste) of the Circuit de Croix en Ternois, with the aim of developing motorcycling under the supervision of the French Motorcyclists Federation, allows the circuit to host official motorcycle races.

* Since 2001the circuit was re-approved by the FFSA and FFM following the re-approval work, this makes it possible to host the stamped events planned within the framework of the federations' calendars.

A TEAM OF PASSIONATE PEOPLE AT YOUR DISPOSAL

Future pilot? Passionate about mechanics?

Looking for where and how to maintain your competition vehicle?

The GRIFFITH'S team, based on the Croix-en-Ternois circuit, is a team of professional mechanics specialized in the maintenance of competition vehicles and single-seaters.

The drivers involved in the team compete in Historic F1, GP2 and Junior Formula.

THE KEY DATES OF THE GRIFFITH'S TEAM

1996: The team was born from the common passion of a few men for motor racing. At the beginning, the team consisted of 4 volunteers motivated by their common passion and worked on 2 Formula 3 Championship cars. After 2 years of activity, GRIFFITH'S moved up a gear for the 1998 season and became a professional by recruiting a team manager and a track engineer in charge of car operations and logistics on the circuits.

1999: It continues its progress and becomes a partner of the ASM-FINA team. It thus benefits from an additional asset to develop. Despite its relatively young age, it has achieved good results.

2000: The GRIFFITH'S team only hires young drivers: Frédéric MAKOWIECKI, Pierre GILBERT and David MORETT. The latter participated in the Promotion Championship at the wheel of the Dallara F396 powered by FIAT engines (Version 2000)

2001: GRIFFITH'S expands and decides to take the lead by entering two single-seaters in the A championship and one single-seater in Promotion. It developed by creating a driving school (single-seater and karting). Thus the team has two main activities, one directly related to competition and the other related to the Formula Campus single-seater driving school until the end of 2007.

2004: The racing team is involved in 2 types of competitions. First of all she participates in the Euroboss with competitions mostly in England with the 1992 F1 of Mr. SCHUMACHER. The French team finished 7th in the general classification of this championship but also in the French Cup of circuits with a F302 Dallara. After the event that took place at Le Vigeant, the team finished 4th in the Cup.

2005: GRIFFITH'S participates in the English Euroboss Championship in F1 and finishes 1st in this event. In parallel, the drivers are participating in several rounds of the French Cup in F3 Dallara. The last event of the season was Magny Cours on November 12 and 13.

2006: This was the year of innovation as the team took part in the VdeV Championship in modern Endurance. Different drivers participated in this international event but it is also worth noting a participation in the TGP with a Tyrell 012.

2007: The team decides to work essentially for the success of historical F1 races. A new driver joins the latter and will participate in the TGP Championship with a Hesketh or Shadow in turn.

2008: There is no question of forgetting the modern competition with the participation in some races of the French Cup of circuits, David MORETTI sticks to it with his Dallara F304 for some national races but also with a race in Recaro Cup (Germany).

2009: GRIFFITH'S decides to put all his energy into the competition and continues his races in the French Cup, TGP and Euroboss for the great pleasure of the drivers involved.

2012: the team participates in the BOSS GP as well as the XL Formula with Historic F1 and GP2.
