a rough track map can help identify the spots described in the pics.

where you see lycee Barthou is the Lycee hairpin.Track runs clockwise and on the right of poeymirau, that's Buisson corner.
Where is marked VILLAGE DES ANIMATIONS is roughly the place where there is the lake.

1967 Formula 3 race;

Going up from the station corner to the Oscar bridge.Note the place for the pitguys on the right. The very fast right after the S/F saw the drivers so much busy with the racing line that they cldn't look at the signals . why they placed them after la Gare ( station) corner.  

and the last section going to the main straight( see STADE EAUX VIVES to locate the place on the map posted above) , that has always been a no access area for the public. As at Brno or some other natural tracks,  racecars ran very close to the houses !! ,

Today Grand Prix Yannick, you just posted an intensive and very steering busy lap with the F2 Lotus 48 FVA that raced here... Seems Jim Clark in the 1' 20 in 1967, was on the same speed range as you during practice.

Thks to promote that demanding track on you tube, and you did a great job between Buisson and the chicane

The AI definitely needs some work. I'm getting multiple pileups at the chicane on EVERY lap.
