Hello dear friends and fans of the 24 Hours of Le Mans,

 

During this summer, after an e-mail from Armand de La ROCHEFOUCAULD (nephew of Sosthènes, who drove a BUGATTI in 1923), a (dream ?) team of MOTORLEGEND Forum open several investigations about this race and his results.

 

We have find that several cars and crews are wrong...

 

Today we have realise an article (sorry in french for instance) to re-establish the truth.

 

You can find all the story and research here :

Congratulations to you and your team on a fine piece of detective work, Jean-Charles. I note that in the summaries you linked to, there are several different spellings of the names of Armand and his uncle Sosthène:

 

de la Rochefoucauld

 

de la Rochefoucaud

 

de la Rochefoucault

 

de la Rouchefoucault

 

Please can you confirm that the correct spelling is de la Rochefoucauld.
