VIDEO: The new Longchamp

Nearly four years after plans for a new grandstand were first unveiled, France Galop’s administrative council has finally given the go-ahead for the rebuilding of Longchamp.
According to a report in The Guardian, the project is budgeted at €131 million, and will result in the eventual closure of one of Paris’s other racetracks – possibly either Saint-Cloud or Maisons-Laffitte.
Studies are also to be conducted into adding a floodlit all-weather track to the new Longchamp when it reopens in August 2017.
Demolition work will begin immediately after this year’s Arc meeting in October after the council voted by a clear majority to adopt the plan.
Watch a video tour of the proposed new grandstand below.
