According to Pablo Gimeno "At the end of the practice sessions on the 16th, on the ascent to the Pueblo Español, Peter de Paolo´s concentration lapsed and he crashed into a lamp-post wrenching it from its hole. He was taken away unconcious and with several fractures. Although at first, due to his profound coma and head injuries, many feared the worst, the medical report from Dr Corachan´s hospital tranquillized his coleagues and the fans. Evidently, he could not participate and the American gave up racing as a result of this accident"

Edgar Morawitz has Czech citizenship, probably German nationality? Later he lived in Spain.

Probably not an exact quote, but these are notes I took from de Paolo's biography, "Wall Smacker":

Unconscious for 11 days, he then went to Paris, hoping to race in the French Grand Prix, but was unable to do so because of headaches and vision problems. After many weeks recuperating, he returned to the USA where friends and family persuaded him to retire from race driving.

ettiwed,

José Mª de Villapadierna raced Maserati 4C 2.4

Edgar de Morawitz was entered in a Bugatti 2.0, but DNS

About Delmo: "Finally, Louis Delmo was most probably the Swiss Louis Braillard, brother of Écurie Braillard owner, racing by himself and winner in 1933 of the I Albi GP at the wheel of the same Bugatti" - this Bugatti was a T51 2.3

Extracted from the book "Montjuïc: 40 Years of Motor Racing History at the Park Circuit", written by Javier del Arco.

Carles,

I quote myself (OMG!). I posted this thing back in March -in your absence- and I think it´s relevant just to repeat it...It doesn´t clarify the situation, but...;)

A first round of infos courtesy of Jose Luis Otero that has cross-checked Alberto Mallo & Monkhouse, plus the help of Javier del Arco´s "Montjuïc, 40 years of Motor Racing History at the Park Circuit" and Pablo Gimeno´s "The International Penya Rhin Grand Prix" yields as follows :

-He made his debut in 1934 at the V Gran Premio de Penya Rhin (17 june). Associated to Joaquín Palacio Power in what was called "Escudería Vipal" (obviously VI-llapadierna PAL-acio) they entered the two Maseratis 8CM that Villapadierna had bought (3019 delivered 11th june and 3020 delivered 16th june!)
Well, this is not agreed...Javier del Arco mentions that the second 8CM was not delivered on time, and that Maserati did lend Villapadierna a 4CM, the one that Taruffi has driven in Monaco (2012).

[3020 was sold by him at the end of 1934, whilst 3019 remained for much longer. According to Pablo Gimeno "In 1939 the engine was fitted to a speedcraft and the car is currently in a British citizen´s private collection]

Louis Delmo puzzles me. I've seen his name in the entry list of the 1934 Belgian GP, published in the Belgian press, but he didn't appeared. He was supposed to drive a T51 Bugatti entered by Friderich from Nice.

The only traces of Delmo are in 1934 and he was driving a Bugatti. Before and after 1934, I've got nothing at all!

4th in Racing car 2 L class- La Turbie (29 March 1934)
DNF 2nd qualifying heat- Bordino Circuit (22 April 1934)
?- Picardie GP (27 May 1934)
?- Penya Rhin GP (17 June 1934)
DNF- Albi GP (22 July 1934)
DNA- Belgium GP (29 July 1934)
8th in Racing car big class- Klausen (5 August 1934)
?- Nice GP (19 August 1934)
?- Comminges GP (26 August 1934).

An interesting theory, but probably wrong since apparently Delmot and Braillard raced together in 1934 at Albi (http://www.kolumbus....an/gp343.htm#24) and probably at Peronne (http://www.kolumbus....an/gp342.htm#12).

This is confirmed by photos.
