Very few instances of this word require an exact translation these days. In the sentence "A quelques encablures du Circuit HTTT Paul Ricard", clearly "a few cable-lengths away " will not do. So I propose "furlong" which is an equivalent pre-metric measure (=220 yards), which will slip into most translations fairly smoothly, as well as having connotations with horse racing.
