Having already found his name in some treads concerning car/bike racers and Veritas cars Ive often found the name of MARCEL MASUY a Belgian who raced BMW and Veritas cars in the early 50's as well as motorbikes. He raced BMW in the 1950 and a Norton sidecar in the 1951/2/3 World-Championship. His passenger in 1950/1 was DENNIS JENKINSON !

for his bike records see:

He was a Chimay regular in the early 50's. But what else did he do on cars. Was he member of a car racing team like Ecurie Francorchamps? Can anyone provide more informations?

I can't add any information about Masuy's car racing career, but it does give me an excuse to post this fabulous picture of Masuy with passenger Dennis Jenkinson well and truly hanging off the chair:

Life is made special by men like DJ. What an exceptional person he was, right down to his rejection of WW2. :up:
