In Doug's last in installment of Testing photo's their is a photo of the very attractive 1975 LM 2 litre class winning Moynet LM75 driven by Marianne Hoepfner /Michele Mounton & Christine Dacremont.

 

The LM75 seems to bear a passing resemblance to the Lenham P68 from the rear.

 

Looking at racing sports cars.com the team made two starts at Le Mans prior to 1975 with an LM68 model, and none subsequent to the success in 1975.

 

The same source show's an André Moynet, I'm guessing the same one, driving in sporadic sports car events back to 1953 including a class win at Le Mans in a DB that year.

 

Unfortunately the only other information I can find for Moynet is on Auto Diva a site to which my French has proved insufficient to gain access for some years, does anyone else know anything about this driver / manufacturer and his / it's sporadic entries ?

I can't add anything about Moynet but the second driver was Michele Mouton, better known as a rally driver.
