Many thanks for the information I was inquiring about 1948 Penya Rhin and not 1949 my typing

mistake. So if Eugene Chaboud car in Belgium was

Grand Prix de Belgique 18 June 1950
Eugene Chaboud Team Automobile Talbot Car Talbot-Lago T26C 110053

I have two further questions.

What did Louis Rosier drive in the Belgian race and who for?

What was his T26C chassis number in this race?

Cheers

Chaboud was in the works team in Belgium 1950, be sure. Rosier, too was in the works team and drove 110051.

Thanks again. Now having solved Louis Rosier's chassis number in the Belgian Grand Prix this leaves Yves Giraud-Cabantous and

Philippe Etancelin

Grand Prix de Belgique 18 June 1950

Yves Giraud-Cabantous

Philippe Etancelin


I have four further questions on this race.


1 What did Philippe Etamcelin drive in the Belgian race and who for?

2 What was his T26C chassis number in this race?

3 What did Yves Giraud-Cabantous drive in the Belgian race and who for?

4 What was his T26C chassis number in this race?

This information on Eugene Chaboud and Louis Rosier casts doubts on Paul Sheldon's account on this race and the French Grand

Prix which leads me to ask the following questions.

What did Louis Rosier, Yves Giraud-Cabantous,Philippe Etancelin, Pierre Levegh and Raymond Sommer drive in the French race

and who for?

What were their T26C chassis numbers in this race?

Has anybody else have doubts the Talbot-Lago chassis numbers in Paul Sheldon "A Record of Grand Prix and Voiturette racing

volume 5"? By the way I consider that his "Black" books to be the best written source on Grand Prix races.


Cheers
