Paris Brest Paris - 1966 (#6)
Audax Club Parisien Bulletin, October ? 1961
(? pages)

Well, this is the one that got away... Alain Collongues, who provided the ACP Bulletins from 1931-1956, does not have the 1966 Bulletin. As close as he can get to an official coverage is the long article written by Robert Lepertel, who would become PBP's organizer in 1971, in the November and December issues of "Cyclotourisme". Linked below. If anyone has the 1966 ACP Bulletin with the coverage of PBP 1966, I'd be thrilled to have a copy, and I bet Alain would too.
