Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

I remember discussing with Claude Ballot-Lena about this race. He was rather tall too but he found that the most uncomfortable was to be overtaken by "big dogs" at night in the Hunaudières straight. At this time the track was rather narrow, bumped on some places and safety was just a word … The guard rails were low and their posts not very tough. A lot of solid trees around too.
