Fantastic corners on the section East of the paul ricard circuit. Be careful though, this road has a reputation as a killer, the concrete barriers on the outside are unforgiving, and the number of signs with pictures of bikers in wheelchairs, bodies with crosses and dates of death etc tell the story.

The route of my youth, a great favorite of mine. From Aubagne you climb the col de l'ange, some nice twisties on the up and on the down on the other side. A short straight bring you to Cuges-Les-Pins, a charming provence village. From then you climb again with big long sweepers all the way to le-Camp-du-Castellet. Two really long straights later you are at the entrance of the Paul Ricard race track, ready to go down to Le Beausset via some really nice bends. Watch out on the way down as some of the turns are nasty and did claim the life of too many bikers. Don't forget to stop to admire the view of the coast. After Le Beausset a long boring straight brings you to St-Anne-d'Evenos. Right after you enter the Ollioules georges, a canyon like road with small twists in all directions which conclude the journey. Like most of the interesting roads on the cote d'Azur, avoid like the plague in July and August. It is crowded with tourists driving at 50 km/h, as well as too many caravans and other camping cars.
