Thanks to Multimap I found it very quickly and here it is:
I have blanked out the surrounding roads in order to make the circuit stand out. The aforementioned accident took place around the gentle right hand curve on the right hand leg of the triangle. The start and finish point was around the mid point of the bottom section. (The circuit orientation is actually with the start finish straight running north/south.)
There are 2 possibilities regarding the corner at the bottom right so I have left both roads on the plan. My guess is that they missed the first right hand bend and took the 2nd but I could be wrong.
Ironically, I passed over the top corner on that very autostrada TWICE last week but never realised how close I was to seeing the track. Doesn't it make you want to SPIT?

Incidentally Barry (& Darren ) , don't know if you've seen this weeks Autosport, but they're considering extending Pau in order to attract CART. I can't work out how to include an attachment but this is the multimap reference
The cars would turn left after Buisson onto Avenue De Bareges, then right into Rue Georges Clemenceau before rejoining the current circuit.

It's quite interesting triangle shape: Americans are famous for ovals, we had many triangle: I found Brescia 1921 (Circuito della Fascia d'Oro), Circuito del Savio, Brescia-Cremona-Mantova 1907 used also for Mille Miglia 1940: anything else?
