Marc,
Thank you for your 1927 information. Can you please give me the source of the date? I need the same information for the 1928 race at Comminges, which is also missing from my list. Can you please help?

I am always receptive for hill climb information, which will be plugged right into my ever growing list. Credit will always be given as long as it is new information. This "sleeper" list is on hold again because I have started on a brand new project.

Would you also please give me the source of your hill climb information, similar like on our history list?

Hans: the race to which Boniver is referring is the 1928 GP de l'ACF, which was, as I am sure you are well aware :) , a sports car handicap held on July 1st 1928.

sources: Les Sports, 1927 (Belgian newspapers).

1928: no Comminges GP, because the ACF choose the circuit for the National GP. 4 Qualifying heats (by cc) and an Handicap final. Sportscars race.

I am bringing this up because it is the only thread that mentiones Francois Eysermann. Do we know more about him? I am just reading Antoine Raffaelli's "Memoires of a Bugatti hunter" and it mentions Eysermann and his victory in first Tripoli GP in 1926. Apparently Eysermann lived in Tunisia and ordered a Bugatti T35 for that race from the factory but it arrived late so he couldn't organize a shipping. It was eventually transferred to Tripoli on a fishing boat, "with 650 kg being only slightly heavier than a tuna". Later Eysermann won the race that apparently had not a great grid but was considered a grand Prix anyway, so he is rightfully included in Hans' list of GP winners. Of course, when Mr. Eysermann told that story by his memory he had to beat certain Mantuan driver along the way... but Nuvolari wasn't racing cars back in 1926. So maybe we can doubt accuracy of fishing boat story too?
Anyway I'd like to know more both about Eysermann and Tripoli GP 1926. Any hints?
In Raffaelli's book is also a nice story about Eysermann meeting Benoist once... as well as some nice Jules Goux stories.

Nuvolari first raced cars in 1921 IIRC - certainly well before 1926

Yes but AFAIK he raced only bikes in 1926?

Correction: his site lists two car races that year, both in Bianchi. Main point was, however, that he didn't race a car at Tripoli GP.
