Montlhery

Following our recent and very enjoyable trip to the Paris Autodrome at Linas Montlhery, I was prompted to lake a look a William (Bill) Boddy's book on the history. The French GP was held there in the 20s and 30s and took place on the road circuit attached to the banked oval part of which was being used during our visit (the outfield at the far end)

This prompted a visit to Google earth and surprise suprise it all still there and appears to be in use.

There does seem to be a military base close but had I known this at the time it would have been nice to drive round, there seems to be road access at the far end just off screen. Bit of a missed opportunity there, oh well next time.
