12 hours of Montlhéry - Two young women "circuit novices" are registered for the first time in this endurance race. Delphine Leroy and Dominique Borredon will ride on a Kawasaki 250 engaged by the dealer "Folie-Méricourt"... a revolution at the time.
After several accelerated riding lessons and some falls, yet they finished the race whose winners were Michel Rougerie and Georges Fougeray (750 Honda).
Delphine said of this race "it's a hell I escaped unscathed". But what the general public did not know at the time was that Delphine Leroy was a nominee because this young woman was actually called Violaine Sanson, and was the older sister of the french singer Véronique Sanson.
