Circuit 24

The Circuit 24 is a circuit for miniature cars created in 1961 by Étienne Jouët and his Factory à idées.

The success was phenomenal and the name became a generic for an electric road circuit from 1963.

Circuit 24 was broadcast in France and Great Britain by Meccano . Production was stopped in 1973 1 .

Etienne Jouët’s eldest son, Dominique Jouët, has written a book retracing the history of this adventure 2 and also gives advice on the restoration of this mythical toy.

On December 27, 2007, France 2 devoted its program Les 4 vérités to Circuit 24.
