Weasel you have shots which show the race number to cross reference here ?

I think this is solved unless Weasel can come with race number to know it for sure

the sole Alpine A360 entered with no 77 in this race

3 things which make me believe this

- what little of you see of the race number looks like a 7
- the nose section matches
- the 2 other design trademarks marked in pink circle

The film was to see at the Renault.TV website, but it seems they don't have it anymore there, or I can't find it now.

It definitely is similar. The 340 was too, but as I understand it didn't take a part in this race.

the 340 was not a F3 car !!! it was a Formula France car, same as the A330 but different engine , the A 360 is same as 330 just slighly longer

now I cheked Forumula France races at Paul Ricard in 1970 (there were none in 69) and there were was no 33 car for example and some of the other race numbers

same with F2 race that's how I concluded that it was from F3 race which results seem to fit

here the info in the F3 historic site

Quote New for 1969 was the A330 and A360, they continued with the spaceframe route and the two cars were identical except that the A360 had a longer wheelbase to accommodate the taller Jabouille. Best result was a 1-2 at Montlhéry.

For the last year of the 1-litre formula Alpine decided to forgo any works participation, the only car to participate was a private A360 fitted with a Ford engine.
