Le Mans - The Film... opening Scene Locations?

Heading South

So, here's a bit of a competition...

Trying to find the different locations from the start of Steve McQueen's classic Le Mans film.

There are four different locations that are outside Le Mans town.
Those within Le Mans are already listed here: http://www.rjsmith.com/le-mans-then-and-now.html

Of the three locations outside Le Mans town two are known, the other two are not.

The first scene is unknown:

But, it should be easy to verify as the road has a particular set of curves.
Something like:

The second scene is also very specific, with a 'hump' or bridge in the distance, and the old looking trees either side of the road...

The third and fourth scenes are known as both are in the town of Fille...
