I agree George, not only beautiful, but one of the most challenging high speed circuits as well.

 :o 2nd of December – Today is David Piper’s birthday and, luckily, he is still able to commemorate it after a brush with death during filming for Steve McQueen’s “Le Mans” movie. A blown tire sent the Porsche 917K into the barriers at high speed, crashing into the rails at both sides of the track, it broke in two, with both halves coming to rest in a ditch. Piper initially only broke a leg in this massive crash, but due to an infection ended up having his lower leg amputated. In the background you can see a startled Steve McQueen looking at the remains of the 917K. None of these shots actually appeared in the movie.
