A friend and I have a personal, non-commercial project to acquire a picture of every car that raced at Le Mans. We're almost there, with the exception of a few cars from 1924. Does anyone have any period pictures of the following :

Lorraine Dietrich B3-6 #5
Aries 8-10 CV #50
Majola #49
Bignan #11
Chenard & Walker Sport #9

I'd also like better photo's of the following :

S.A.R.A. #46
Bignan #29
G.R.P. #32
Corre La Licorne #43 & #44
Georges IRAT #27
Rolland Pilain C23 #18
Chenard #33

Hoping the collective wisdom of the forum can help. Thanks.

Copyright : All these pics come from the annual 2004

Sorry about certains pics but they are very smaller (4x3 cm)

PS : for the ROLLAND PILAIN and BIGNAN , it's difficult because the car are without race number...

In France in the differents forums where I go, you can put a pic, but you must give the name of the photograph or in defect the name of the book where to come from the pic.

Yes the "2004 annual" ie ACO own all the copyrights.... these pics are own by ACO and was found in the basement of the "Grande Tribune"...

When C.Moity and JM Tesseidre made the "1923-1992" book, they did not find these pics in the ACO archives, just because they were hide by other files. Bruno Vandestick found them just before the preliminary test day of 2004 race. And then, Jean-Marc and I spent a couple hour to identify these cars and some others in a big lot of 1924-1927 pics....

Haine Kaine have no right to scan and publish on any website these pictures...

Que fait la police ? :rolleyes:

At the risk of being hung drawn and quartered, I thought I'd copy this photo from a French Le Mans book. Voila - the only LHD C type that ever raced at Le Mans!

I understand that SCAP engines around that size were used for other cars than SCAP. Stuart Middlehurst had two complete SCAPs and spares which included two engines. One loose engine which came with purchase of the second car, he was able to recognise by an external oil line modification as the engine of a SCAP that he owned before the War. The other disassembled engine was very slightly larger displacement, and it was single OHC. The engines of the SCAP cars were pushrod OHV. My recollection is that the bottom end was not particularly robust, and may likely have been two main bearing crank. It is quite a long while ago to remember details of something that had only passing interest for me. I am fairly sure the first car is owned by Stuart's daughter and her husband. The other was restored as a joint project by friends of Stuart, father and son, around 25 years ago; and used for local VSCC events.

what a lot of speaking about copyrights and posting picture's on this forum.

Look at a French forum and See that it contains 90% of posting picture's. www.forum-auto.com
for example: http://www.forum-aut...sujet251633.htm

Is this autosport.com forum a UK forum or a USA forum with this special rules?

Every forum had their laws according how are their own interpretation of their national law !

On the french forum : i repost pics wich are allready on internet... BUT i never scan myself any book or pic, or only with authorization (Haine Kaine did not have any from the ACO about 1924 pics, that is fun just because he is a "policeman" for a french forum ). Because i respect writers...and i know that they do not appreciate to be spoiled.

Or i post my owns pics and then i apply the rule i explain above.... You know that pics are always low quality, so it is difficult to put it in a book or trying to make money with it...

If it is FREE somewhere on internet, why it is not FREE elsewhere on internet.... I did that on french forum like Autodiva... On TNF, they have their rules...

Remember that the owners of a forum can be sued for what it displays whether they are directly responsible for the content or not.

If someone felt so inclined it might be worth their while to take legal action against organisations like Haymarket/Autosport as they have assets that could meet the damages. Hence Autosport have to be more cautious in their policies than an individual who is the proverbial "man of straw".

and remember, too, that just because a photo has been posted on the internet it doesn't follow that it was done without breaching copyright in the first place.

Question concerning the Corre/Corre-La Licorne driver Collomb:

- Joseph Collomb was a well-known bicycle star in the 1890s, born in Lyon. Later he was Mors agent in Lyon, and drove Mors, Rochet-Schneider and Pilain cars up to the Mont Ventoux, the Limonest, in sprints between Arles and Salon, etc... In 1907 he built his "Orthoptère", a flying machine ressembling an insect. He committed suicide in February 1908.

- Another Collomb was a motorcycle rider between 1903 and -05. He was entered in the 1906 GP de l'ACF as mechanic for Barriaux on the Vulpès which did not start. Later he drove for Corre in the Coupe des Voiturettes.

- In more recent books about the 24 h du Mans, we can find an Albert Colomb (only one "l") who drove for Corre-La Licorne in the 1920s.

Had Joseph Collomb nothing to do with Corre/Corre-La Licorne?
Was there a second Joseph Collomb?
Was the Corre driver the former motorcycle rider Collomb/Albert Colomb?

How common is the name Collomb? I sit likely to be coincidence, or is the name that rare that the posibility of more than one Collomb family being interested in motor sport is remote?
Bernard Collomb, the 1960's GP driver is described by Steve Small as " a former motorcycle rider from Nice". Another relative?
