I am interested in learning more about beach and coastal racing and speed trial events in France.

 

I would be grateful for any leads, venue names, or links to view please.

There's information on the different lap lengths used at La Baule's beach races here:

While Southport still has beach races, apparently:

We have a brief previous thread on La Baule: https://forums.autos...d/#entry7013480

 

La Baule is the only French beach course I'm aware of - and a search of thread titles on Autodiva for "plage" or "plages" doesn't bring up anything.

Monsieur Archimbaud's book about La Baule has recently been updated, with extra text and illustrations. Available from the usual French specialist outlets.
