Track Infos from Wiki :
Autodrome de Montlhéry (established 4 October 1924) is a motor racing circuit, officially called L’autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry, located south-west of the small town of Montlhéry about thirty kilometres (19 miles) south of Paris.
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.
The last certification for racing was gained in 2001.
4 available layouts :
– Long , including the “lacets de couard”

You can find a “pps” with pictures of the track since 1924.
Thanks to :
A huge thank to Guitoupylot, which by his precious photos and videos and his knowledge of the place, helped me to get as close as possible to reality.
A big thank you also for its responsiveness to my many questions – it was a pleasure.
A big thank you to ThomasX, Cabal and Draco, who helped fix the 3405 to improve fidelity, and their friendly presence on RacingFR to encourage me during these months of work.
Also thank you to speakers on topics of racingFR and rookies-rfactor who also supported me:)
I do not forget Neel Jani and Thierrydu81, which have occasionally been able to bring valuable assistance to my fellow TheSky to fix technicals bugs.
Thanks also to VirtuaLM , for their authorization for trees’s textures.
And of course, a big thank to TheSky, without whom the track is very far from the current results, particularly for the AIW and some technicals details that make the playability.
A thought, affected, for Frank # 55, which had once carried a version of the track on rFactor, upon which I very much enjoyed to make my first turns of wheels.
