Those 2 drivers drove an Alfa Romeo 1750 GS in 1933 at Le Mans and Spa.
Nothing before these event or even after

Any suggestions ??

Not familiar with these drivers; they must have been privateers. Thgis came up on google search

Rousseau, the former Salmson driver ? Yes, why not.

Paco, I've found nothing about him, except Le Mans and Spa.

Yes, perhaps because the car was a saloon it indicates they were privateers using their own machine.

Rousseau was a driver for Salmson till 1928. There is after a gap of 5 years doesn't seem realistic.

Another clue, how many closed bodies were done on 1750 Alfa Romeo ??

I always thought the Alfa Rousseau was a different person from the Salmson Rousseau, but I no longer remember why...

I dont know what type of 6c16750 it was, but a fair number of closed bodied were done on 6c1750 GTs.
