When they drive there during the week they go clockwise but at the weekend events they go anti-clockwise.

1923....

According Wikipedia , it has several high-speed problems :

Industrialist Alexandre Lamblin hired René Jamin to design the 2,548.24 metres (1.58 miles) oval shaped track for up to 1,000 kg (2,205 lb) vehicles at 220 km/h (140 mph). It was initially called Autodrome parisien, and had especially high banking. A road circuit was added in 1925.

The first race there, the 1925 French Grand Prix, was held on 26 July 1925 and organised by The Automobile Club de France Grand Prix. It was a race in which Robert Benoist in a Delage won; Antonio Ascari died in an Alfa Romeo P2. The Grand Prix revisited the track in 1927 and each year between 1931 and 1937.

In 1939 the track was sold to the government, deprived of maintenance, and again sold to Union technique de l’automobile et du cycle (UTAC) in December 1946.

The "Coupe du Salon", "Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or" and the "1000 km" were arranged irregularly since then, as the track has had several high-speed problems.

Fatal accidents at Autodrome de Montlhéry include Benoît Nicolas Musy (1956), and the one in which Peter Lindner, Franco Patria and three flag marshals died in 1964.

The last certification for racing was gained in 2001.

"1923"

Don't know about hi-speed Daytona but I wouldn't mind taking my M for a spin round this fine track..reasons to be cheerful are many and looks much safer that the crowded Nordschleife.

OK....
M Power Belgium and M5theonlyone....you MUST start a new thread entitled Circuits of the Past (or Motorsport Remembered or something like that)....re-post the great info to-date; it's going to be lost in the 2021 F1 thread we've been posting in....I'm sure I"m not the only motorhead that would immerse in a deep-dive into motorsport history!

Beut to watch Max at Honda's 'home' banked track giving it full whack right on the outside.
Another not so that old track that got my attention is the Clermont-Ferrand track also known as Circuit de Charade in the middle of France.
Chris Amon holds the lap record of 2min 53.9 set in a Matra MS120 back in '72 with 104mph average speed.

GREAT onboard footage; I was struck at how very smooth the racing surface is; the transition from banking to straights is the perfect angle(s); can you post info re this track? lap distance? degrees banking? location? any data on VER's lap times or top speed?
