Does anyone have the results of this hillclimb naming the drivers rather than the entrants? Any information much appreciated.

John,

What sources have you already read ? My handwriten notes of that year are not very easily accessible.

Entry lists and results in the newspapers show a puzzling mixture of names of car manufacturers, other firms and individuals (not necessarily drivers).

The reporter of ‘Le Figaro’ identified the following 33 drivers but didn’t link them to a car or an entry number:

Serpollet
Mors
Morane
Lemoine
R. de Knyff
Guardet
Mouter
Lamberjack
Rousseau
Max & Georges Richard
Gobron
Blay
Vinet
Riguelle
H. de Rothschild
Chameroy
Michelin
M. Chérié
Schneider
Marcellin
Guillelmon
Labouré
Ravenez
Gardon
Giraud
Cottereau
Lefebvre
du Laurens de la Barre
Degrais
Deligeon
de Preugne
Comiot
etc.

Other drivers mentioned in the reports:
Madame Gobron, Mercier, Théry.
