Note 117

Lago-Talbot T26C in sound and motion


     The yellow T26C represents the car raced over 1948-1951 by Johnny Claes of Belgium in its national colours.

It is noteworthy that a nominal 2-seater version of the T26C Grand Prix car, fitted with road-going equipment, won the 1950 24 Hours of Le Mans. This was driven for all-but-2 laps by Louis Rosier, (his son drove those).

The sound is from You-Tube by Dusan Neumann.
