Apart from three races in 1949 I know absolutely nothing about this gentleman.

 

Can anyone add to the store of knowledge about insignificant post war racing car drivers?

 

(I'm assuming he was NOT also a Swiss goalkeeper!)

 

Or maybe it IS the same man.

It is (or, rather, was) the same man. I have a couple of 1948 results in hill climbs if you're interested, but nothing of consequence.

Mmmm...

Assuming the sport you mean is football, not ice hockey or something, I'm surprised he could drive at all.   :well:

Maybe I shouldn't tell you about the reigning French GT champion then: A Mr Fabien Barthez  :)
