Le Mans, no. 15, DNF, Rosier-Trintignant, entered  by Ecurie France
(single windscreen,  three vertical air outlets in rear wings). It withdrew in the sixth hour, after being in 12th place the previous hour. A crack team for this car (which Taruffi drove in the Mille Miglia?), they succee­ded in getting it into third place in the gene­ral clas­si­fication for a short while before trou­bles began. Could also have been  #0196A!?
